Revisiting one of Rob Symons’ routes from a couple of years ago which, Rob kindly reminds me, involved ice creams at the top of Blackstone Edge. Why the hell not?
Takes us up to Denshaw and out towards the Boothwood Reservour. There’s a good amount of climbing on this and often a little cheeky headwind coming up to Blackstone Edge. Bring your power legs.
Hopefully we’ll get some sunshine so we can remember what it feels like. Wouldn’t hold your breath on the weather but let’s set achievable goals: let us at least be able to ride! Let us be dry!
At 40 miles and 3,000ft elevation, like every AP ride, you’ll know you’ve been on a ride.
Post ride suggestion(s): The Woodthorpe or Cuckoo.
