. Saturday’s ride was a big un. My longest ride ever in fact. In September we host the Road Cycling World Championships, it’s gonna be massive and to honour the race myself and three friends rode the men’s elite course (only doing one of the seven finishing circuit laps though ) then riding on to return to Leeds. . . Total distance: 145 miles Bonus distance for me going back down Buttertubs to see that Chappy had trashed his rear mech: 3 miles Total climbing: 10,082ft Ride time: 8hrs 56mins Total time out: 10hrs 44 mins Calories burned according to Garmin: 5181 kJ Food eaten by me on ride: 5 energy gels, 2 cereal bars, 3 ham croissants, 2 Pepperamis, a Snickers bar, a Picnic bar, a pork pie, 2 slices of pizza, packet of salted peanuts. . . The weather behaved itself for the first six hours, then we were treated to a 2hr deluge from West Tanfield until we left Harrogate. We were so wet water was squirting out of our shoes with each pedal stroke. Cold too. But we soldiered on because that’s what you do. That post-ride beer & curry never tasted so good. . . This is me photographed by @chris_dransfield1 answering a call from @chapman_chappy who we had left behind inadvertently. His gears had started playing up. A bad omen of things to come #roadcycling

. Big ride yesterday. Full details to follow. Here we pass Kilnsey Crag, one of the best climbing locations in Britain, maybe the world, with approximately 120 routes graded from F3 to F9a+ and HVS to E8. (I have no idea what these numbers mean but I understand some of these routes are top drawer for toughness 💪🏻 ) #yorkshirecycling #yorkshiredales #kilnseycrag #fromwhereiride #yorkshirecycling #roadcycling #roadslikethese #doyouevenlanebro #outsideisfree #adventure #exploration #nature #cycling #ig_cycling #ig_britishisles #nature #cyclingphotograpy

#tbt to October 2011, Batley CC Hill Climb, Scotchman Lane, Morley. 0.87 miles long, average grade 6.5%, average speed 14.7mph, 3rd place, racing in the ever so stylish colours of @moonglu cycles. 3min 33secs of leg-burning, lung-ripping agony. It’s amazing the things you do to yourself innit? 🤪💥🔫 (Subsequent years were quicker, think we had a bit of a headwind that year ) #hillclimb #strava #cycling #roadcycling #roadslikethese #fromwhereiride #painface #roadracing #fullgas #powerhouse #ig_cycling #stravaproveit

@jamesvincent can make me look fast but he can also make me look bloody old!! 👴🏻 Must have been the rooty, rocky fun of the incredible descent of Larig Ghru in our recent Aviemore trip shaking my jowls loose!! I look like an old Dawg, not a Hawg 🐶 #FanyLion #mtb #mtblife #mtbphotography #mountainbike #mountainbiking #cycling #aviemore #vtt #outsideisfree #fromwhereiride #trailslikethese #downhill #freeride #enduro

. Bizarre. Someone has dumped some beautiful artwork outside our local Starbucks. Some strange kind of art/coffee/tax protest maybe? #leedslife #leedsviews #leeds #leedseyeview #streetart #streetartnews #igersleeds #ig_leeds #ig_britishisles #leedswelcome #independentleeds #tv_pointofview #tv_europe #artwork #art #creative #chapelallerton #loveleeds

The TV of Tiredness. This mirror is located half way up a grippy climb back into Leeds. If I’m doing a short ride or I’m feeling strong I’ll blast past it without a second glance. But if I’m feeling mashed, I’ll stop and take a selfie. Yup, mashed today 🤪 #cyclingselfie #tcradvancedprodisc #tcrtuesday #yorkshirecycling #roadcycling #roadslikethese #fromwhereiride #outsideisfree #strava #stravaproveit #doyouevenlanebro
