Day 15: into the Lakes

"This is the day we were all dreading," said Dom, on completing the Challengers' first day in Cumbria. "We're in the Lakes. And yes, it rained.

"Six big, very big climbs: Kirkstone, Wrynose, Hardknott (both ways), Honister, Newlands House and Whinlatter. Great group joined us, thanks to the two Chris’s, Mike, Giles, Tim, Stuart and Nigel. You all made it easier to get to 72 Climbs."

Velocity is covering the 100 Climbs Challenge, in which three incredible cyclists (and friends of V) are cycling Britain's greatest climbs: a 5,300km, 29-day ride for charity. Follow the route, find out how to donate and/or ride with the 100 Climbs Challengers here.
