Sunday I headed out for a “Couple of Easy Miles”
I ended up on the Top of Chunal:
Now THATS a View !
Its a nice 1000ft – ish (from my house) climb to the top, very enjoyable actually, approx 4 miles from the bottom of Glossop to the top of here, lots of motorbikes and “Chavs” in Crosa’s with rather large “Zorst’s” though.
The great thing about this was there was a rider approx 45 seconds in front of me, I stuck it in the biggest gear and “Gave it Balls” hitting 45 Mph at one point, I averaged 30 mph on the way down.
Passing the other rider on one of the bends, it was AMAZING, if a little dangerous
The ride was just under 16 miles, and just under 1600ft, I managed to average 15,1 Mph,hitting 45Mph on the way down.
I set myself a goal of 400 miles in March, I am now on 410 Miles , I also set a goal of 100 miles this week, I did 168 Miles…………Think I need to re-evalute my challenges.
Finally, here is a video from the top of Chunal and the 3rd climb
If this or I have inspired you, then PLEASE sponsor me for the 2011 Manchester to Blackpool charity ride, together, we CAN beat cancer.
