Wooler Wheel 100km Sportive

Ian S and Ally Mac completed the Wooler sportive at the weekend. Entered in the midi-event, a 63 miler with 5000ft of ascent, the event is centred on Wooler and the course makes it's way south through Ingram to Thropton, then kicks back north through Glanton and Eglingham. 
The lads grafted south into a squally and wet headwind and moved onto the Big Ring at Alwinton, passing through the feed breaks at high speed and stopping only to sample the delights of the jelly baby cup and delicate slices of flapjack.
Good fun and all finishers were treated to a slap up feed of pasta and bolognaise. Some of the lucky ones even got a 10 minute leg massage.
