NE&YORKS final National Status Event of the year will take place on Saturday 27th November

IMPORTANT UPDATE-

Meeting point has been changed and will now be Dixon's Hollow Car Park at 9:30 onwards for a 10:30 kick off.

LIGHTS WILL NOW BE REQUIRED DUE TO A SLIGHTLY LATER FINISH!!


As well as being a classic MTB venue, Dalby Forest is one of the all time great stages in Rallying folklore. On Saturday 27th Dalby and nearby Langdale Forest gets retro with the passing of the annual Roger Albert Clark Rally. This event was conceived to re-live the classic RAC Rallies of the 60's and 70's and every years sees an impressive international field of classic rally machinery.

So this year we have a Retrobike ride with a twist.

After a hearty breakfast we will head deep into the forest to sample the best of the red and black routes, a play session at the PACE Bike Park and new pump track as well as the splendid off piste sections known only to the locals. We will also take in sections of the UCI World Cup course before heading to Low Dalby for a spot of lunch.
After lunch we head east on more fantastic all weather singletrack before descending down into Langdale via Crosscliffe Bank. Here we will spend an hour or so watching Escorts, SAABs, Porsches and Lancias tackle one of the fastest stages of the event. With a bumper entry of over 80 Historic machines in action it is sure to be a cracking day out.

Image

We then return to Dixons Hollow for a 4;30 finish.

Image

Total distance will be approx 21 miles of mixed surface singletrack with a little tarmac and fire road. Route is retro friendly and although retro bikes are our prefered choice, modern bikes are welcome as long as the attitude is old school! There are plenty of bail out options and big skids and car noises are optional :lol: Due to a change in the Rally's timings we will now be finishing in the dark, therefore LIGHTS WILL BE REQUIRED!

Meeting point has been changed and will now be Dixon's Hollow Car Park at 9:30 onwards for a 10:30 kick off.

Breakfasts available at Russells in nearby Pickering from 8:30 onwards.

Make sure you bring plenty of warm clothing as standing about for an hour in lycra watching cars will freeze off yer bits!

So, once again , hope to see you oop on't moor one more time.

Cheers
Si AEC

lewis1641, if needed and if Chrisv40 needed we could always go up the following day (Sunday). I know we'll miss the national status event and meeting everyone but you get a ride and you can still see the rally (it's Fri to Mon) ah no you'll miss the rally a they're up North Westwards on the Scottish border.

Will get back and see how busy I am that day.
