The Wiggle Yorkshire Tour

27th September 2014 based at Thirsk Racecourse.  I rode the short route, 37 miles in 2hr 37min 20sec.  Not very good by todays standards but over 15mph which was good for my present level of fitness.  If I had been 4 minutes faster I would have achieved Wiggle’s gold standard.  There were 55 and 100 mile routes which were well beyond my capabilities.  It was a good experience which I enjoyed.  The sun shone brightly the wind was light SW but cold in the shade of the trees of which there were many stretches on the route through the lanes passing Northallerton and back to Thirsk.
