Welcome to the 4th or 5th year running annual 'Gates' ride.

Its flat where I live so the route is Big Skies and gates. Lots of them.

The route is approximately 38 miles depending on route choice on the day. One year the ride had to be curtailed due to flooding but all seems ok for 2014 unless it rains non-stop for the next 3 weeks...

The ride starts at PE28 4EZ and combines a bit of new urban singletrack for 2014 and a stop in the Ferry Boat Inn, Holywell. Veterans of the ride will tell you great stories about this pub you see across the river, almost touching a frosty pint glass... But its a good two hours away!

Lots of tea/ coffee available, bacon sarnies on request.

Mini bike jumble too if anybody wants to bring some stuff along - showering me with bike parts always gets better catering...

The route is suitable for most riders, a bit of stamina is required and if it is really dry, some sort of shock absorption. We follow bits of the Ouse Valley way with the picturesque Hemmingfords, Godmanchester, Houghton and Holywell villages with an optional Greggs in St.Ives.

PM me if you want to attend and I'll update the thread.

I look forward to seeing you!
