On 8th of July I will take a part and ride one of the UK's hardest sportives in Yorkshire, the Struggle Moors ( 110 miles long, taking in 10,239ft over five climbs) to support Brownlee Foundation charity.
And on July 29th 2018 I will also ride the Extreme route of 105 miles (169.9 kilometres). With elevation gains of over 9,491ft (2,893m) the extreme route takes in the now traditional monument climbs of Boltby Bank, Blakey Bank and Rosedale Chimney Bank.
