Headed out to reccie route to my new work place. Not the greatest commute, will have to find some slightly quieter routes. Did about 40mins of sustained effort, mainly on the uphills.

Great ride out into the Peak District with Jack and James Hartley. Hadn't expected to do quite so much, was regretting the earlier session. Good hill sprint with Jack who go I just managed to get past before the top. After café stop in Hope Jack wanted to give Winnats Pass a go for the first time. We all headed up at our own pace, Jack was only a couple of mins behind, with James a couple of mins behind that. Pretty impressive from a 15 and 13 year old, just cycling up it is hard and they both cycled the whole thing.

After interview in Hawes headed up to the north Dales to go over a couple of climbs I'd wanted to give a full effort for a while. Parked up in Langthwaite and headed up to Tan Hill, and helped by a decent tailwind I was rewarded with a 14-min PB! Down to Swaledale before the 2nd climb of the day up Turf Moor. Just took it at a sustained pace rather than flat-out effort, but still got a 3-min PB (only other time I've done it was in the Etape du Dales).
Great fun in the evening sunshine, and rewarded with a couple of top 3 Strava times on the 2 climbs.
