Off Road Ride 26 Jan

Off Road Ride 26 Jan

Eight of us made it out for a ride from Hartford rather than the planned Macc Forest due to the snow. It turned out to be extremely hard going in the semi-frozen slushy snow, but good fun nonetheless and a warm sunny day. Up through Davenham then along the tracks to Moulton before descending towards […]

Long Mynd Off Road ride 22 Dec

Long Mynd Off Road ride 22 Dec

The day before the Dave Astles memorial ride in much worse weather, 5 of us travelled down to Church Stretton for a superb day riding the tracks and trails of the Long Mynd. Alan K, Tim, Matthew, Steve M and I ignored the weather man and had a brilliant time. Although it was very wet, […]

Whinlatter Duathlon and Great Expecta...

Whinlatter Duathlon and Great Expectations 11 November

Third time I’ve done this event and it’s a classic. 6.5k run, 18k bike and 5.5k run – all hilly and rough terrain. Tim was fantastic with 15 place from 160 finishers in a time of 2hr15min. I was way down in 2hr 43min, but only 10mins slower than last year and it was a lovely […]

Cyclo Cross 21 October

Cyclo Cross 21 October

A glorious calm, sunny day made the event all the more enjoyable. The addition of a butty and burger van along with proper car parking helped with the smooth running of the event. 105 riders contested the main race around an extended, more challenging course at the usual venue of Greenbank, Northwich.  Paul Bethell (Team Elite) led […]

Off Road Weekend – Capel Curig ...

Off Road Weekend – Capel Curig and the Bwlch y Groes

Saturday started wet and it stayed that way. Richard led us on one of his fantastic “possibly rideable” routes from Trefriw via the steepest road I’ve riden up in years to Llyn Cowlyd where we followed the bridleway along the shore. Kev U tried his best to prove it rideable, but even he had to […]

50th Anniversary Off Road ride – Mary Towneley Loop Sat 23 June

We nearly called it off due to the flooding in Lancashire / Yorkshire with Hebden Bridge, our intended lunch stop on the breakfast tv news due to the main street being submerged. But six intrepid off roaders set off from Waterfoot near Rawtenstall to tackle the 50 mile loop. This was early on, before we had hit too much […]

This was the team – KevU, KevC, me, Tim and Jules ready for the start of this demanding 22mile ride on tracks around the Ceriog Valley in the Welsh Borderlands. Tim and KevU shot off and Tim would have been quickest overall if he hadn’t had a puncture and another mechanical. It is quite a […]
