Woah! Sunday I managed to complete the Dragon Ride cyclosportive. It is a circular, 190km non competitive road cycle challenge ride over the beautiful hills and valleys of South Wales – around 3000m of climbing, the route takes in the classic Milk Race/Tour of Britain climbs of the Bwlch, Rhigos and Brecon Beacons mountain roads.
Needless to say it was quite hard – 2nd route up Bwlch from Afan was particularly long, arduous and challenging. Needless to say I managed to grin every time for the camera – more of pain than elation! Recommended for next year if you fancy wrecking your knees and taking on one or two Pro’s who use it as a training ride.
