The lure of the Darkside

A few months ago a mate persuaded me to buy a road bike, take the peak off my helmet, don some lycra and pedal across France. With three days to go I stupidly decided to plot the route. I think I may have made a terrible mistake.…

Thanks for the routefinding today Nick - good ride out, despite the best efforts of the weather. If the weather's looking a bit better next weekend, fancy dusting off the full-fat Rosedale/Hutton-le-Hole route?
