A hot and hilly hm!

It was a absolute scorcher in sheffield today for the Yorkshire hm. And all uphill for the first half. The people of sheffield gave some brilliant support though. The water sprinklers and oranges were very welcome. As was a nice cup of cold alcohol free beer at the end. Overall a fantastic day, if you get the chance to do this one give it a go! And I got a pb-1.54!

We ended up negotiating the road closures skirting the course, en route for Our Cow Molly and their heavenly Sheffield Honey Ripple ice cream... It certainly was hot so very well done!
