Club Rides – Sunday October 1st

Easy Ride
Well the forecast for Sunday looks pretty rubbish. If its turns out to be not as bad as predicted then we could do a shortish ride up to Boroughbridge etc

If the forecast is correct and its sheeting down and blowing a gale – we could do an even shorter ride to Wetherspoons for an All Day Breakfast and unlimited refill coffee. – Led by Ian

Assuming it’s not pouring with rain. Am happy to lead a steady group ride out to say Benningborough and back. Usual time and place. – Led by Richard

Medium Ride
45 miles with a lump in the middle. Otley Chevin (the easy way up) Brew at the cheerful chilli, back via Thorner, Linton, Wetherby.  – Led by Alex

A circular ride from Settle that heads into the Trough of Bowland on some really quiet lanes for about 35 miles with about 750m. of climbing.

Club Rides – Sunday September 17th

Easy Ride
About 35 miles

Roundhay Park

Well there is a change to the planned ride this weekend. We were due to do a ride to Beningbrough and use the new ferry to Nun Monkton – however, they have not managed to get this started yet so will have to postpone that one.

By way of compensation I was going to take you to the park, Roundhay Park, cafe stop would be Lakeside Cafe (remember your bike locks J) and returning over the newly re-opened Linton Bridge. Probably about 35 miles – mostly flat on the way back after coffee.

– Led by Ian

Club Rides – Sunday September 3rd

Easy Ride
This week is Katies Birthday ride out to Coxwold and Byland Abbey calling in at Boroughbridge, Helperby, Easingwold and Aldwark Bridge – not necessarily in that order.

This should be about 52 miles – assuming we don’t get lost! Most of it is reasonably flat, but there would be a few miles round Coxwold which would be hilly. Cafe stop at Byland Abbey or Coxwold or Easingwold – or all three!

This would at our normal Sunday speed, so we would get back later than usual – probably mid afternoon.

See you there!  – Led by Ian

Away Day

There is lots of free parking in Padiham car parks but only for 2 hours. So I have looked out a road close to the centre that appears unrestricted and seems to have lots of space. The postcode is BB12 8EF (Station Road) I have found the postcode by looking up the Police Station which is at 64 but there seems to be plenty of space further down beyond the railway bridge. Suggested meeting time is 10 am with lunch en route. Can we swop phone numbers when we know who is going. Bryan and I will have a full car with 2 bikes but sharing may be possible.

Forecast looks OK with light cloud and 17 degrees
