50 Years and 50 Cyclists!

Posted by Sarah Bridge on 2016-11-13

In thinking of ways to celebrate the Club's 50th Anniversary, Peter B came up with the great idea of 50 people cycling 50 miles on the anniversary of the founding of the Club. This was in addition to visiting 50 different cafes during the year which we easily achieved.

In the end 52 people did the anniversary ride. 18 cycled from Brompton or from further afield cycling 50 miles to and from Grewelthorpe. 10 cycled from Richmond - most did 48 miles but Melanie and Peter T added an extra 2 miles (at least) to their ride to bring it up to 50 - such dedication. 24 people did a 24 mile return ride from Bedale. We were joined by another 3 members of the Section at Grewelthorpe Village Hall.

The Village Hall put on a great buffet lunch for us - soup, sandwiches, cakes, tea and coffee. Thank you very much!

What an achievement to get 55 SOC cyclists together in one place.
