Big Cogs training – Bootcamp to Bakewell

Big Cogs Bakewell training ride

Sat April 16th – Boot Camp to Bakewell (~100 miles & 9,000 feet of ascent)


The majority of us undertook a challenging c.100 mile ride into the Peak District that saw us take a meandering route to Bakewell.

This ensured we went up as many steep assents as possible!

Whilst that was not everyone’s idea of a ‘nice Saturday ride’, it was great preparation for some of the longer days we will face in France.

The weather helped, here’s hoping for the same during the event, as we enjoyed lunch in the sun before returning via similar terrain.
