What is your PB?

About 8.5 hours. I’m not really made for the lake district at >80kg!

It’s a nice sportive and time doesn’t really matter as long as you enjoy it. Do they still ring cowbells on some of the passes? It’s a decade since I ride it.

Yes, still a lot of support out on the climbs. More than ever in fact.

Good luck to those riding, I can’t ride this year due to ongoing issues caused by covid but hoping to be back next year and will be helping out at Grasmere again so maybe see you all up there :+1: :+1:

They did in 2018 when I did it.

Most amazing ride I’ve ever done, started out cold with mist but by 10am the sun came out and it was crystal clear all day. Never seen views like it, the Lakes are so beautiful if you get the weather to see them.
