Isle of Man End to End training in full swing now!

Mark manages to keep ahead of Bob on the climb.

With the Isle of Man End to End mountain bike race only just over 2 weeks away we're upping the ante in our training, with longer rides involving more climbing in the probably mistaken belief that the actual event itself will be easier than what we've been doing! The Wednesday night runs are now finishing in darkness and the numbers taking part are rising, last night there were 6 of us. Whether this will continue through the winter remains to be seen, when only the insane among us venture out in the sleet and rain to arrive home frostbitten and soaked. 25.5 miles last night and still waiting for everything to go wrong before an usually does in the last few days.
