Teesdale/Weardale loop

Inbred set up for long road ride

Took the Inbred on the road up Weardale and then over the top to Teesdale and home again. Pretty slow average speed, but it's hard to go much faster on 32:17 and plased that I kept the 20kmh speed on the flatter bits both there and back. Biggest ride of the year so far and felt much better than previous century (or close to) rides, with very few aches the following day too.

The road over from Westgate to Newbiggin is brilliant:
