Winter Hill in Perfect Conditions - Saturday 6th April

Couldn’t have had better conditions for this morning’s run over Winter Hill.   The vicious wind that accompanied all our Easter outings had dropped and with bright blue skies and glorious sunshine it was a pleasure to be out.  So much so, that quite a bit of time was spent just enjoying the views and the craic which meant that total mileage only amounted to just under ten miles!  Still we got a bit of climbing in Smile
