We've got a good schedule of stuff this year- so thanks for all the chaps for organising it- more on our calendar than the NW Area I think :wink: .
But any idea what the starting point and format for our National Event is in July? It clashes with the Barbon Hill Climb, so I'm needing to decide now whether to Retrobike or marshall at Barbon.

i managed to get out today despite the rubbish weather. floods all over the shop. i have had me reading glasses on recently and 'mentally' knocked up a ride.

i was pleasantly suprised today as i did a last-minute decision-recce on it and, found it rideable,,more or less :wink: and takes in some interesting stuff.

rest areas, pub grub, parking, all sorted.

mileage- 12.

terrain- bridals, old railway routes, some tarmac(quiet roads) and, overall easy, flat easy going stuff in pleasant environment.

i will disclose more soon.

This years National is going to be a cracker. Vern, Myself and Gil were going over the route last month and the biggest problem is going to be getting the ride under 30 miles- there is just so much classic singletrack in that area. If the weather is kind I can guarantee that the Yorkshire round of the National Series is going to be the highpoint of the year!

Hi Rich

Theres two possible start points so not sure yet, as for format... start at pub, ride to pub, ride back to pub winner :D

Are you coming to the Ravenscar ride ?


Nah, being a sought-after Socialite it clashes with our Friends Meeting House after New-Year Christmas Party thing. But I might be on the Rivington ride on the 21st.
