The Hell of the North (East)

Screen Shot 2014-04-11 at 20.30.55Just a short week after riding the harsh cobbles of The Tour of Flanders, it’s time for the Pros to ride the Hell of the North, the Paris-Roubaix.

Similarly, last week Team Dulux were in Belgium riding the Ronde van Vlaanderen Cyclo. This week, we’re not in France, but the Newcastle Cycle Hub have arranged a themed ride, The Hell of the North (East). It was a lottery, but I got a place, so despite a weather forecast for rain, and a weather forecast distinctly less warm and more windy than last week in Belgium, I’m off for a lumpy 100km ride around Northumberland.

Trip report to follow, but for now enjoy the Paris-Roubaix on Sunday.
