Struggle Moors 2018

 Sunday 8th July 2018

Sunday 8th July 2018

Thank you @struggleevents Victoria and Matt for another experience. And dragging me into wall of tarmac ahead, rolling those hills back down and climbing it again, legs and lungs empty, head full of quitting talk.

But what a damn hard day. Thank you again for putting me at the edge of hairpins.

Next time will need bigger cogs on the back, or bigger thighs.

Big well done to everyone riding it! It was good battle of wills! Struggle events see ya next year 🏼 I also would like to take the opportunity and support Paul’s Gaunt family and the Brownlee Foundation Charity.

Paul Gaunt sadly past away suddenly due to a heart attack at the age of 52. I would like to express my deepest sympathies and support the family.

Struggle Dales 2018

Absolutely delighted with everything from start to finish! This is the first 108 miles cycling event I’ve ever done.  A wonderfully unforgettable experience. What a wonderful experience – big thank you to all  also all marshals and everyone outhere to definitely keep me motivated and uplifted!  Tackling Park Rash Hill  totally worn me down and I really struggled both mentally and physically.  Photographer was an absolute rock, pushed me throughout the hardest bit! Without his support never would have made it up there. I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you all! Now another 3 hills tick off my list 

Malham Cove ✔️

Park Rush ✔️

Trapping Hill ✔️

Thanks again Struggle Dales ( love those socks btw ) for an incredible experiences and maybe see you in Struggle Moors!

Tour de Yorkshire

 Sunday 6th May 2018

Sunday 6th May 2018

Being passionate about my love for Yorkshire I decided to ride Tour de Yorkshire Sportive on 6th of May 2018. The route is 129 km long starts with 88 m elevation gaining to 2059 m elevation starting and finishing in  Leeds going throughout  heart of North Yorkshire.

I did find this really challenging especially living in depth of despair of not to be able to race in triathlons this 2018 season because of my injury. But I don't hold in emotional pain. Instead I make sure I tend my physical needs. I can explore the beauty of Yorkshire hills and work on my swimming. 

Experience is a great teacher.

Would like to say that I had a bright and early start for the 1st Tour de Yorkshire sportive.

In fact, the heavens had well and truly opened as we set off from Woodhouse lane in Leeds to tackle the tough course which covered much of Stage 4 of Tour de Yorkshire.  80 miles in 6:11:55 and again 4th in my age group. Nobody wants to come 4th! 

However, the Yorkshire folks who lined the route gave us plenty of warmth and encouragement to keep us going.  And you could see some world class triathletes on a course 

All in all a challenging, chilly and hilly day on the bike – but totally worth it!  Thanks Yorkshire! Struggle Dales next maybe ?
