Theoretically, today should have been relatively easy as we started at 5014 feet and finished at 3443 feet. However, life is never so simple and there was more climbing than yesterday. More of that later.
The first 35 miles were marvellous and even having had to climb a bit out of Lusk, I had averaged better than 13 mph by the SAG stop and the scenery was improving as a bonus.
I wonder if this is what 'The Big Hill' at Whitehills once looked like??
