In the shadow of the Sellaronda Hero

Finally got to meet up again with Steve today after too long. He's just back from completing the sellaronda hero mountain bike race in the Dolomites - a gruelling 87 km race with 4,700m of ascent.

Playing around at Semer Water

Steve shredding in the tree's
Today we took a trip out in his 'Bongo' camper van and headed to Semer Water in the Yorkshire Dales. A very scenic spot that I've not been to before.

gross, but satay mole anyone...
Don't slip...

From here he headed over some very hilly terrain to Bainbridge and onwards towards Castle Bolton where we had an interesting time crossing some slippery stepping stones!

At last some down hill

After this we climbed, and climbed, and climbed, and I can't remember when it actually stopped. Steve's always fit, but today I got punished and clearly all of his training for the 'Hero' has done him some good. Lets hope he now loses this fitness quickly.

A well earned cup of tea
A cup of tea in the camper was well earned after today's 30km ride, thank goodness I had some spare water left for the tea Steve ;-).
