Puncheur 2014

Andrew Rice and Hazel Davies have been out doing the the spring classics; those sportives that are some of the first to be run in the year and offer the challenges of both the weather and the hills of the North or South Downs.  The rides over the last 5 weeks were; the Hell of the Ashdown, the Puncheur and the Spring Onion (the first two were reviewed in 27th March edition of Cycling Weekly) all are fantastic routes and after a winter's cycling not too big a challenge at about 65 miles each.  This year the weather was kind to us inasmuch as it didn't rain or snow (apart from a couple of hail showers last week!) and the temperature stayed above zero!
