This August saw a pose of American Mules arrive on our shores full of expectation. Unlike their forefathers whose travels were motivated by the thought of a better life. These velo globe trotters merely sought contrasting cycling terrain to the Texas praireland.
Hosted by the Anglo Mules they were provided with such a variety of topography that even Christian Prudhomme would have been impressed
It all started with the 'Way of the Roses' a relatively new Coast to Coast Route traversing England from the West Coast in Morecambe to Bridlington in the East.
If each seaside resort was a slice of bread then what was in between was a spectacular 'Club Sandwich'
As well as spectacular Scenery there were also a lot of laughs and smiles even if some appeared 2 dimensional when the hills ramped up.
When the seagulls appeared and you could smell the salt in the air, weary limbs faded at the thought of a rest from pedalling
For Christian an Crawford rest was not an option, they wanted to become honorary Yorkshire folk and tame the hills so they joined the Anglo Mules on their Weds Club ride
This obviously ensured that they were more thirsty on their return
Ride London - Free Ride
Prior to the Damp London Surrey 100 we did have one dry day in London where as you can see by the pictures - Fun was had by all
