The Barrie Williams Challenge 2013

This event came to my notice about two weeks before the actual event – that short notice! I found out that it was organised by the Wolverhampton Racing and Cycling Club

Went down there and questioned them about the sportive and found out it was 62 mile loop with the Start/Finish at Pattingham. The good thing is that I know Pattingham, it the village I have been riding through to Cosford for awhile now.  Add to that I have one 64 mile ride under the belt in 4:30 hours.

A very wet and muddy Whitney at the end of 58,5 miles at the finish.

Members of the Triban Owners Forum at Check Point 1. A very courageous lady on her first 62 mile ride. She did brilliantly!
