Foulby (near Nostell Priory)
A638 Doncaster - Wakefield Road

A group of at least 15 MTB'ers slowed down to take to the bridleways, heading from the Ackworth direction


Anyone from here???

Two of us 'were off the front' running back towards Ackworth, & saw you all.

Nothing to do with a certain 'Old Ned' was it??

nothing i'm aware of. and nothing prepared by retrobike directly.

although some members are known to have other hobbies and things going on. i believe there are a few mtb and roady clubs in the wakefield area.

nostell priory? i may well look into this area for these routes. thanks.

I run with/for http://www.ackworthroadrunnersandac.co.uk/

I only started running initially as 'cross-training' for the Cyclo-Cross I used to do.
However, the running's taken over, to the detriment of cycling

Plus, I'm also one of those crazy Fell-Runners :roll:


To be seen somewhere in the top half of this 'string', a couple of weeks ago at Haworth (somewhere on 'top of the Labradors head'???)
