Team Dovetail: 23 miles to Burley, Ponies and Leg Aches


We had our third training session yesterday and what a beautiful evening, so different from last Monday’s gales. Four of us in training tonight and we managed 23 miles up to Burley across the New Forest and I am pleased to say down through Bangnum Woods. We faced the odd hurdle, ponies blocking the route, sun in our eyes, leg aches, but staying true to form we surmounted them all.

Took us 2 hours and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.  Need to have more hill experience next time as I know the MacMillan Dorset Bike Course is more challenging.  My challenge is to find a new route for next week.!!  Watch this space.
