i've opted for the new 15 miler. weather looks ok too. a good, organised way to see the place. all new to me.

early lauch more or less guarantees a lunch finish, back to 'string o beads' for my carvery.

we had a go at this this morning, some decent double-track.

plenty of tarmac but even more single-track/bridalways.

although not on form( ok, i would say that :wink:) did 2h 2m 12s-15 miles.

two particularly long, steepish climbs but, no killer really. will sleep well tonight :)


'93 clockwork kicked some modern butt. steel on-one got stu round with no failures 8)

Cheers for posting the pic Marc, the Guys in the picture going down the track had no idea what was about to happen to them, some idiot on a steel On One blasting past them and right behind a 93 Orange clockwork, rigid with cantis gracefully passing Modern full sussers.

I thought this event was well organized and you get a lot for your £15, a t shirt, tea, coffee, bacon butties and proper curry supplied by the Masala lounge ( the main sponsor of the event ) I think I am going to enter the next one the Calderdale mountain bike marathon on the 14th of October 26 miles

Does that mean you didn't barge into anyone on the whole ride, I'm disapointed in you . :D
