In terms of distance, July was the second best cycling month for me this year, with 801 km covered in just 7 rides.

However, in terms of elevation gained it was by far the best this year, with a total of 5011 metres of climbing.

The longest ride and the greatest elevation gained were both on the two day, 225 km ride to Odendorf in Germany via the river Rhine.

On this ride the elevation gained was 1067 metres.

My cycling activities this month were curtailed somewhat by a ten day visit, by car, to the UK.

Therefore my last ride in July was on July 22nd.

This month’s photographs are here and an overview of the routes I’ve ridden are here.
