Sharon and Friends Tackle the Fred Whitton Route
Sharon along with 6 friends took on the Fred Whitton Challenge over two very very rainy days early this October.
The girls pulled together climbing Kirkstone, Honister, Newlands and Whinlatter passes on day one.
A stop over night in Ennerdale on the Saturday was very much needed to dry out jackets and shoes!
The 2nd day they climbed Coldfell, Hardknott and Wrynose passes in horrendous conditions.
The girls finished their challenge tired, wet but in high spirits.
Sharon is hoping to be accepted into the Fred Whitton Challenge next May.
Sharon’s bike choice was the Liv Langma Advanced 2
“ This bike wants to climb! It’s so comfortable and the gear shifting is a dream”
“ The brakes were perfect, no problems getting down Hardknott in the wind and rain”
