Steve & Carol’s 25 mile ride from North Cowton, 26th October 2016

Posted by Carol Charlton on 2016-10-31
There was a good turn out for this ride, which would have been even better if someone at the cycling AGM had not given colds to James, Vic and John Drysdale!

Blakey Ridge 15/16 October 2016

Posted by Judith Hallett on 2016-10-18
Cyclists arrived at Roots from Richmond, Northallerton and Darlington for a coffee stop before heading in a north easterly direction towards Hutton Rugby and  Ingleby Greenhow to Kildale for a lunch stop. Before arriving here there had already been two mechanicals - Johnny with a snapped chain and John with a puncture. Suitably refreshed we knew the cycling was now going to get harder as we headed into the North York Moors - our planned destination being the Lion Inn on Blakey Ridge.

Cycle to Thixendale 2nd October 2016

Posted by James Gravenor on 2016-10-07

The last time I led a ride to Thixendale only 3 people came on it so I wasn't expecting a great turnout. To my surprise 14 people arrived at Coxwold including Judy and Keith who we haven't seen for some time. We had to jostle for parking with the local football team and the Stcokton ramblers.

East Layton - Wednesday 21st led by Richard

Posted by Richard Wright on 2016-09-25
The unlucky number of 13 left East Layton, at the appointed hour.  The bad luck had already happened by then as we would have been 15 but John and Maura's car was hit by a tractor emerging from a field on the way to the village.  Thankfully no injuries but the car and one o

A rainy ride led by Bob - 3rd September

Posted by Bernadine McDonald on 2016-09-04
Bob led a ride from Cockerton Green, a group of 9, with Anne, Mark, Ken, James, Barbara, Yvonne, Jenny and myself. The rain arrived earlier than expected about half an hour into the ride,
so that unlike myself, those who'd thought to bring over-trousers stopped to get kitted out.

Jill's hilly 80 miler complete with sausage sandwiches!! Wednesday 31st August

Posted by Jill Armstrong on 2016-08-31

Me, Jenny and John Hallet started from the bike centre today and Peter Trewby joined us from Leyburn. 7400ft of climbing so quite hilly but we all made it up the hills despite the head wind going up Coverdale.

Stopped for lunch at Corner House cafe in Grassington, my favourite for large sausage sandwiches - see photo.

The main photo is us at the top of Greenhow Hill. Got back quite late didn't have time for a second cafe stop - with the benefit of hindsight should have started earlier.
