Last Sunday Gary and I entered our first 'Sportive' ride. It was local and so seemed the ideal opportunity for us to dip our toes in and give it a go.

The route was lovely - mainly quiet back roads free from any major traffic. We passed through some beautiful villages, a few of which I hadn't been to before. There were a couple of testing hills which saw a few people dismounting (not us though!) and some roller coaster descents to set the heart racing.

It was a good work-out, and with the ride too and from the start point we clocked up around 70 miles for the day.
Here's a video clip and I've added a couple of photos.
