April 2016 – Skegness

23 April 2016

This is yet another Audax ride, but this is the longest I have ever attempted; 300km starting and finishing in Alfreton Derbyshire going in a loop to Skegness.  The end would be in the dark, and the cut off time was 2.00am on the Sunday.  We started at 6.00am Saturday morning on a cold cold morning.  I had a couple of meal stops before cramps set in approaching Lincoln on the way back, but all was restored after a huge pile of fish and chips.  I finally arrived at Allfreton just after midnight, much chuffed and very well supported on social media by my daughters Helen & Sarah.  The gory details can be found here (opens in a new window).
