Sheffield. A 15 mile loop up to Owler Bar. Snow all around. Meanwhile back down in Ecclesall churchyard it was as though Spring were on the way. All Saints, Ecclesall.
It’s all in the name. “Long Line” is a long road. It’s in a line. And it’s a climb. Perfect. And tonight it had some lost sheep on it, but we rescued them. Anyway, here’s the road.
It’s between Dore and Ringinglow if you want to try it out #sheffield #cycling
Roper Hill, one of my favourite little climbs. Here it is in the low evening sun on a ride out to Redmires Reservoir, Sheffield.
Who knows if these will go ahead. But if they do, Strictly Come Dancing has some serious competition in the Autumn Winter ratings this year.
I’ve been spending a lot of time adjusting stuff on my rear wheel recently. First the brakes were juddering then there’s the old trick of spending half a day to re-align them and now there’s a creak when I work it uphill. But I’ve had the wheel off again (after creaking all the way up Whitelow Lane) and it seems quiet now so here’s hoping…
My new favourite climb. It’s not that long and it leads to more climbs beyond but its just a really nice quiet road looking up to the Peak District and looking back over Sheffield.
Oh to be back at the World Championships #Yorkshire #UCI
9 fabulous days of cycling. A fair bit of sun. And when it rained, it rained. 10/10.
