BaseCamp member Shaw Gallen shared his experience at the Dirty Reiver event in Northumberland.
A-event done! A big thank you to Basecamp (and Basecamp alums!) as the training really paid off: felt strong (even with tail-end of a bug) and could really attack the hills. Inside the time cutoff for 200km (despite puncture in first km and 10 mins waiting for friend), but hip flexor issues meant I opted for 130km. (Good decision as only back brake for last 20km.) Will be back next year for the 200. 😁
