Nice ride into work this morning.Image attachment
Sorry to say but Im cancelling todays ride in view of the adverse weather particularly the gale force winds forecast from midday. It will neither be enjoyable or safe to ride.

Sensible decision - I was due to be mending walls in Skipton Woods. Fortunately, that’s cancelled as well. Time to enjoy the rugby!

Take care across this section of  Carleton Road nr Burnside. Highways have left this in a dangerous state.

As a result of yesterday's experience and accident I have written to Highways dept of NYCC expressing our concern about the state of these holes and dangers to road users not in cars!

I very nearly came off here yesterday Steve. I reported to NYCC also and have received an email to say that it does not meet their criteria for repair. I’ve subsequently submitted a complaint to NYCC.

You’ll be pleased to hear that it’s been filled in now 👍🏼

Please share our post with your cycling mateys - theres a lot of competition out there!
The 12th edition of the popular Brian Robinson Challenge Ride, a 70 mile cycle  sportif taking in some of the iconic Pennine climbs and using roads on which Britain’s first Tour de France stage winner trained  will take place on Sunday 12th May.

The ride which raises  money for  charity and good causes will be again based at the excellent Huddersfield New College campus , making access easy for all participants being located close to the M62 

The ride will start with the traditional mass start and   with the first mile being on a closed road. 

This event has the benefit of using motorcycle marshals for directional  instruction.  Moral support and assistance as well as mechanical support and a  broom wagon 

It has been designed by Brian Robinson, whose exploits helped secure the Tour de France Grand depart of 2014 and fuel the Yorkshire cycling boom to offer a personal challenge to all riders whether you are trying to get round the 8,000 feet of climbing in under  4 hours  or pacing yourself to get back within the  8 hour time limit , there is something for all abilities 

Riders will have  the chance to top up their energy reserves at a feed station  placed about half way round the course and the college catering facilities   offer sustenance for sale on their return 

This event has seen riders come from far and wide to conquer the climbs of Holme Moss, Woodhead Pass and Wessenden Head with the furtherst btavelled to date being an entrant from Austin , Texas in the 2014 edition

Many riders enjoy the route, support and organisation so much they return each year
