Today, 11th November, is 200 days away from the 3 Pistes Cycle Sportive 2015.

That’s only 200 more training days.

With Christmas, work, snow, ice and all other commitments that means you’ve probably only got another 50 or so rides on you bike before you tackle the UKs Highest Cycle Sportive.

Put down that chocolate bar, step away from that roll and lorne, shun those mince pies, forget all about that lovely NZ Sauvignon Blanc. You have 6 mountains to conquer and a whole load of cake to enjoy just before The Lecht.
