100 Mile Flat Ride

Posted by James Gravenor on 2017-06-20

It's been a few years since we've held the 100 mile flat ride so we resurrected it this year. Seventeen members and one guest completed the ride from Brompton via Thirsk and Easingwold to Newton upon Ouse and back to Brompton via Boroughbridge, Ripon, Bedale and Kirkby Fleetham.

I cut the corner off my planned route, thinking I had a mile or so in hand. Unfortunately that was not the case and we arrived back in Brompton having done just over 98 miles so we cycled round and round the village much to the bemusement of residents until we clocked up the century.

Congratulations to all who achieved this i.e. Barbara, Berni, David, Glenys and Glenys (on their tandem), Graham M, Judith and John, Jenny, the three Marks, Pauline & Peter, Sheila, Steve and me. Some were century virgins before the ride so particular congratulations to David, Glenys & Glenys, Graham and Mark R on their first hundred.
