Ready for the off in Dent

Dentdale Weekend

As perhaps the last outing of the summer a few of the lads decided to head to Dentdale in Cumbria and in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The plan was to camp overnight on Saturday in the village of Dent and then ride back to Boro on the Sunday. A couple of the girls came […]

Wales in Day 2017

In July a couple of the Coastbusters, Paul Coxon and Martin Russell took on the Wales in Day challenge. A mammoth undertaking! Paul tells the story…. Next up after our trip to the Dolomites was Wales in a day, a 185 mile sportive starting in Caernarfon Castle and finishing in Chepstow with some 17,000 plus […]

The Lads in St Marks square Venice

Venice

No riding today for the lads so they head for the train station while Ade and I take the van to the rendezvous at our hotel in Mestre which is on the mainland. All goes smoothly and we drop our gear off at the hotel and head to Venice. We take the bus which takes […]

The Peleton crosses the bridge at Tolmezzo

Ovaro to Treviso

Today is the day for the big push back towards Venice. A 95 mile race to Treviso, the weather is hot, we’re heading mainly down hill and away from the mountains… However, we need to avoid the major roads and so have to thread our way on the B roads. A wrong turn could result […]

Roly fords the river on route to Ovaro

Auronzo to Ovaro

We start late today. One climb over and down to Ovaro where we are staying. From there we’re taking on the famous Zoncolan which starts in Ovaro. It’s going to be a straight up and down but we know it’s very tough. The route to Ovaro looks straight forward enough… but you already know what’s […]

Coxy Summit Cime di Lavaredo

Arabba to Auronzo

Glorious weather as the lads set off for the move from Arabba to Auronzo. Some tough climbs today but first job is to get Marty’s wheel sorted. The lads head out for the first climb and Marty and I return to Corvava to pick up his, hopefully now fixed, wheel. We get to the bike […]

Four Passes – No photos

As you know we weren’t able to do our planned route today due to road closures and bad weather. However the lads were finally able to get away at 3pm and the plan was to cycle the four passes of the Sella Ronda. I can’t set off until the road opens at 3:30pm but before […]

Sella Ronda Bike Day

Sella Ronda Bike Day

Well we woke this morning to low cloud, thunder and heavy rain so we’re cabined up hoping to get out later this afternoon. Either way I’d have been grounded as all the roads around Arabba are closed! Today is the Sella Ronda bike day where all the nearby passes are closed to all traffic except […]

At the start Arabba

Passo Fedaia and Pordoi Loop

A couple of tough climbs today but we set off late as there’s a Lions v All Blacks rugby match to watch first thing. Sadly the Lions got beat so it’s on to the main business of the day. We set off for Caprile in blazing hot sun and it’s here that we take the […]
