Crimea pass trip March 2023

The Crimea Pass is a hard enough challenge on a good day but with a 20mph head wind it certainly tested us all to our limits, well done to Alec (King of the Mountain) who just pipped Geoff to the summit.

A big shout out to Morag for not only conquering the Crimea Pass but also getting around with not much training under her belt, an outstanding effort worthy of the “Combativity Award”.

As ever Geoff was an absolute rock, helping everybody out with assembling and adjusting bikes and keeping us all together on the road.

Loved our evening get together comparing wheels and other bike parts and we didn’t even need Viv’s passport.

An absolutely fantastic couple of days with a great bunch of people, really missed the guys who couldn’t make it and hope that we can all get together soon.
