Fleet Moss – Sunday 18th May 2014 and 1982 for Neville Holgate

Preparing for the Raid Corsica in June needs to involve some efforts on long climbs – so the classic Fleet Moss Audax sounded like a good idea for Peter Leonard and me (Allan Taylor). Peter was unable to commit to the full day due to previous commitments so joined me for the first 60 or
