After a mix-up about times I went for a training ride with two of the guys who will be doing the LEJOG – Pete and Andy. Pete had been asking about doing a ride with hills, so I offered to take him round the 32 mile circuit I use looping out of Bury and through Haslingden and the Grane Road towards Blackburn.
This includes a decent climb up the Grane Road and a couple of smaller ones
Considering Pete had just come back from a 2 week all-inclusive holiday he did pretty well. Total mileage 32 miles at 14.4mph and 1854ft of climbing. Total calories 1712kcal.
