A small contingent of Wheelers travelled north to take part in the first running of this great sportive.
It was run on closed roads which is a joy for any cyclist. It had great police support, lots of volunteers and locals out cheering us on.

All of this made the 175k over a rolling tough course a very  "enjoyable" day out, indeed Tommy Casserly has already signed up for next year.
