Rural Solutions in house architect Kate Paterson will be taking part in the 2012 Dartmoor Classic Cyclosportive this Sunday.
The Sportive is a 104km cycle race across the hills of Dartmoor. While the distance is a challenge the hills are more of a problem: the ride involves nearly 3.5km of vertical ascent up to the peaks of Princetown and Warren House Inn.
True “king of the mountains” will be looking to complete the ride in 4 ½ hours. Meanwhile Kate (who first climbed onto a road bike 3 months ago) will be looking for a finish time of around 6 hours without recourse to the broom wagon!
