It’s a grey, rainy day here today at Cowbell HQ, winter is definitely coming. This is typically a time of rest, followed by steady winter miles in preparation for next year. It can be hard to put the millage in without a goal in mind. Take your pick of any of the following sportives and races to have an epic ride planned for 2015 and all the motivation you need to ride through a grim winter.
The Fred Whitton is a challenging early year sportive around the Lake District, in May. It packs in over 3000M of climbing in the 100M route. With two big climbs near the end of the route. Punchy.
