Cheers :wink:

I'm looking forward to tomorrow, it's the 3rd uk fatbike meet weekend, this time based in goathland North Yorkshire, with a 20 mile moorland ride on Saturday, then a coastal ride on Sunday.

Should be ace....can't wait!

I ain't rode my bike since Sunday, a poorly knee has made me be careful and stay fresh as possible for the weekends antics.

Expect lots of pics and a report when I'm back on Sunday night :D

make sure you dabble the tire pressures and maybe make sure you invest in decent tread, nates or husker du's for the single track....it will be awesome.

done 40 odd miles of single track and beach riding with mine this weekend....will get some snaps up tomorrow.

Well I survived my 2nd fatbike meet of the year!

25 miles off road moorland on Saturday then sundays 13 miles of coastal areas topped off with great pubs!

What an awesome weekend, fantastic weather, brilliant company and the amazing scenery of the North Yorkshire moors and Whitby to play around in!

Here's a taster of Saturday until I sort some pictures up....

heres my little report on the 3rd UK fatbike meet, this time held in north yorkshire 8)

watching the days tick off as the event got nearer, we were looking at a rather wet and windy event....floods, storms, cold temps....not good, despite this time of year usually being warm and damp.

friday came, and i couldnt wait to get home and load the car up after work....despite having a week off from cycling due to a sprained knee, i was keen to get away for a couple of days of fun and in good company.

pulling into goatham on friday, the evening was soon upon me, so a quick hello to the 5 riders who had turned up early, and i had to whip the tent up and get down to the pub for supper....a good start!

Image

quick bite to eat then to talk fatbikes and drink beer....

Image

soon started to make our own drinks...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

time started to crack on so we headed back to the campsite....to the warmth of the bunkhouse and its lounge area....where me, bruce and gil soon started to annoy the other campers and the whisky came out!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

after a quick game of hoopla (where i won 10p) we headed for bed at erm...3am or something!

woke up saturday morning in my snug 4 season sleeping bag to a light frost, but stunning clear blue skies....to the sounds of my cooked breakfast was ready!

good old DrS had arrived and wasted no time in feeding the troops 8)

a few more arrived for the days riding on the moors, a 25 mile loop that included the infamous blue man....a 4 mile long rock garden that youd struggle to walk let alone ride!....it came near the end to test our bikes to the max!

the route:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

then onto the blue man....ouch!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

after we all survived, it was soon back to the pub on the way back to camp fat for a quick pint...

old roman road....

Image

Image

Image

Image

then through the village and a quick pasta supper then back to the pub!

and what i woke to...

Image

Image

Image

bacon, beans and coffee were straight on...

Image

Image

then a 20 minute drive to the coast....again, crisp blue sky, temps were rising and above all....no wind!

Image

the tide was still going out so we headed to the clay pits, made famous in the old dirt video with jason mc roy!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

then a peek at an old railway tunnel

Image

Image

Image

soon we headed to the beach...for a game of tag on the way to the chippy!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

after lunch it was time for some sight seeing around whitby...the tourists didnt know what to make of us!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

then another ice cream stop and a ride back to the cars and hometime....wow, what a weekend!
