First Durham Village's Tandem Tour of 2013

Its been a long winter and havent had the Cannondale Tandem out once. Dragged it out, knocked off the dust, pumped up the tyres and it was ready to role. We have a 32mile loop around the outskirts of Durham which takes in many of the villages and a few climbs along the way. Some of the villages en route is Nevilles Cross, Shincliffe, Bowburn, Coxhoe, Kelloe, Quarrinton Hill, Cassop, Shadforth, Sherburn Hill, Litteltown, Sherburn. High & Low Pittington, Carville, Gilesgate, Durham & Framwellgate Moor. Fantastic weather, sunny but still a cold wind in places. Here are some pics and the half way park stop.
