20 miles 

A proper brutal climb-fest of a ride last night. Only 20 miles or so, but an out and back that basically starts to go uphill from our back door and heads up towards Birtle, following the bridleway.

I was determined to ride all the way to the top despite choosing to ride The Tank Bike with its 36:16 gear ratio. Mud tyres didn’t help either. Limited time = big pain.
