Rapha #festive500 Day 2.

After yesterday's misery we were both looking forward to a better ride today.

Thankfully the weather played nicer, we had rain, but not lots of it.

We were having Xmas dinner in Leeds, so this was to be a linear route. We'd see how far we could get before Ann caught us up in the car.

From Hayfield we rode through Glossop then over Holme Moss. This was the first time Minipips had ridden over there.

The climb is a couple of miles long, but not particularly steep. All good.

The view from the top was nonexistant.

We were hoping to bump in to Ali and Emma, but they got there later.

The weather improved as we descended into Yorkshire at 50+ kph. 306/386 on the strava segment., not bad for a 7 year old.

There was little traffic, and what there was on the road seemed a good deal more courteous than usual.

We rode on through Holmfirth and Hudersfield and got picked up just before we got to Brighouse.

43.5 km today - Strava data.

Only 402.7 Km to go


  1. Sounds like you're doing some hilly miles!

  2. There's no flat route between here and Leeds other than the motorways. :)

    1. Well done tom that's a great achivment and merry xmas to you all
