Three a month through the Winter can be a struggle. I can select any day dependent of weather as retired; but you still have to cope with short daylight and riding in the cool and dark is not fun..... I know!

Well done

I completed RRtY#12 last month and RRtY#13 yesterday with a DIY to near Lichfield, across to Rutland and into the Vale of Belvoir. I started what should hopefully be RRtY#14 in March and RRtY#15 in September.

I started in my attempt in December 2017 as an incentive to do some longer rides over the winter:

1   DIY 200k from Sedgefield
2   DIY 200k, Sedgefield again with a slightly different route
3   DIY 200k, as above
4   DIY 200k, found a better start point with quieter roads from Heighington.  My planned calendar event was postponed due to dangerous weather.
5   DIY 200k, Heighington again
6   As above
7   One way trip from home to Lincolnshire to visit relatives and attend a wedding
8   200k calendar event (Tocky 200 - nice flat route in North Yorkshire)
9   200k calendar event (Four Tops - geet hilly in the North Pennines)

and number 10 yesterday - Middle Marches 200k.  A lovely route, with lots of climbing and spectacular views in the cloudy, windy weather.

Number 11 (October) on Friday, subject to validation.  A one way trip to Wooler, with a following wind a lot of the way but a strengthening gale against me for the last ten miles.  I made an early start (5.30am) to get clear of the busier / urban roads before the traffic got heavy.  Rain in the first section, dried out, then got soaked again in the last hour.  Just one to go ......
