Lincoln Sportive 2012

The 100 miles ride through the Lincolnshire wolds, with a total climb 4,692 feet, and total descent 4,678 feet.

There were 5 of us participating, Bob White, Bob Haworth, Steve Cropper, Gerry Hyde, and myself. 

This was the start where we all look nice and fresh. Everyone is still smiling.....

Was a lovely day, that was until Nettleham Hill, which was at about 70 miles, just when you didn't want to see it. A real thigh burner.

The end was awesome, Micklegate Hill on cobbles right up to the castle square in Lincoln.

And look what a handsome lot we are, hardly any perspiration in sight.
