Captain Cook Challenge Sportive 2012

Popped down to the North York Moors for the hilly 60 mile Captain Cook Challenge. There was 4500ft of ascent over Kildale and Commondale and maybe other dales. The weather deteriorated through the ride from rain to snow with some riders abandoning and others like me left questioning their sanity. The feeling in my fingers and toes have returned and the bike's been cleared of slush, ice and salt and is resting in front of the fire.  Finished in around 4 hrs. There was a welcome break at Castleton where tea and cake was rustled up. But the jersey got out there, so nice one. GOTHIC!!  (Photos at
