Ali's longest-est ever ride (just)
It seemed like no time at all before we were out in the lanes, at this point it became apparent that not only was it windy but that it was going to be a headwind the whole way there. Ali was doing a good job of sitting right on my rear wheel so I was left to battle the wind, still I am sure it is good training. I love the road names in this part of Lancashire and with the route being slightly different to my normal route there were a few new ones to me.
Time to head off and after a pleasent ride along the coast road we headed off along the Banks only to take another new route. It avoided the main road but did become a little interesting on road bikes!
Then all that was left to do was stop at Freddies for ice-creams before heading home.
At this point Ali changed her mind about climbing over Sheep House Lane to Belmont and we went the flatter route home.
76miles makes it the longest ride mileage-wise for Ali, if she keeps this up I am going to struggle to keep up with her at Kielder100!
