Putting in the miles on the coast road

Endurance up Gurnards Head

posted in: Solyo, Training | 0



Another long endurance ride up the coast road in the depths of Cornish winter. The winds over the tops are strong and constantly blowing in from the Atlantic, and a swirling mist keeps visibility down, especially up Eagles Nest. Gurnards head is a really cosy pub and does a good coffee and cake, but there was no time for stopping today as I had to keep the power constant.

A car and a camera joined me today. It’s always good to have some company as it’s a lonely slog over the moors for hours on end, and someone taking pictures helps to break the boredom. You can view the video clip below…
