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 http://www.wolverhamptonrcc.com/

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.

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