I read through this and was impressed with your running commentary.
I tried to imagine how challenging it will have been on that 28 mile loop, and then recalled our 'Lakes adventure' (where you and I finally joined up all the best bits of the last 10 years of Grizedale explorations into one ride) that was pretty epic at 6 hours of tough singletrack, but we had great weather and each other to talk to. It was very tiring and I was completely wrecked after it.
This must have been a tough one.
In one mind, I am thankful you didn't drag me along, and in another, I am jealous I wasn't there to share it.
