The last few weeks have been dry in the area creating fantastic conditions for the road sportive as well as for the MTB Marathon. The single and double tracks are super smooth and just great fun to whiz along. The weather forecast for the weekend is perfect with temperatures over 20 degrease for both days. Saturday appears to be the warmer day of the two with a very slight breeze – ideal for a long day in the road saddle. Sunday’s temperatures are slightly lower but sunny with a light breeze. Nice!
