Leicester Forest members riding the annual hillclimb event.
some of the blogs i follow (especially my friends at rat trap press) have a fantastic knack of reporting local rides that they go on in a way that makes them interesting to other riders, half the world away. local, everyday buildings, roads and fields in fort worth, texas look very different to little old leicestershire!
our start and finish point.
just like the tour, they’ve been out laying fresh tarmac before the my ride.
the first sting to the legs is the “belgian-style” frisberg.
there will be roadside temptations.
the kaff – right next door to rutland cycling.
england’s largest man-made lake – looking pretty empty just now though.
one last climb before home.
i’m a little teapot – in my la gazzetta della bici shirt.
