Settle to Skipton

A beautiful summer day, with sun all day, a light breeze to cool me and dry underfoot throughout. A tough 19+ miles today to help me beat my personal best on this year's GCC Challenge. At the end I felt great, with plenty more walking in me if I'd needed it. Around Sharpah I realised I'd lost my car key somewhere along the route, so called the RAC while on the path. They arrived about 20 mins after I did at the car and the guy fished out the spare key from the hidey hole in the centre console with a metal wire! Great day out, despite that.
