Sunday Rides – 29th May 2016

A ride out to watch Stuart Raw in the Derwentside Mountain Time Trial.  For information Stuart did the 40 miles in 2.09.44 and climbed 3842 ft.

Route out up Weardale to St Johns Chapel for a quick cake stop where we met Gary from Inspiral Cycles, on to Killhope, where we saw Stuart.  Up and over to Nenthead followed by the 25% climb over Dowgang Hush to upper Teesdale.  A continuation down the valley to Middleton In Teesdale for a coffee stop.

At the café we met Josh Quigley who was on day 4 of a round the world cycle tour to raise awareness of suicide prevention and mental health issues.  Please see Tartan Explorer.Com for more information.

Home via Middle End Farm and Folly Top.

Approximately 80 miles covered but not quite sure as my garmin failed at 66miles!
