On Sunday April 28th the 6 members of the Turnitin Sandstone Way team set off to tackle a large training ride out in Northumberland.
Team member Nathan explained: “The ride took us from the village of Alwinton up to the Scottish border and over Windy Gyle before dropping down to the valley. Once at valley level there were a couple of climbs to cross the hills back to Alwinton. This was a tough ride, but one we all enjoyed. It was good to get out in to the National Park and experience some of the terrain we will encounter during the Sandstone Way.”
At the end of the 20 miles they had climbed over 3,000 feet, a good day in the saddle!
“As a training ride this should put us in good shape for the Sandstone Way” added Nathan. “With only a little over 8 weeks to go training is really stepping up. Some of us have another large ride scheduled in 2 weeks time, and we are all getting on the bike as much as possible as well as hitting the gym to make sure we complete this challenge for Action Foundation.”
