Weds Vets, Burnsall, 12th July 2017
I'm not able to make it out on the bike again this Sunday but I'm meeting Simon at 6.30 at Brighouse on Saturday 15th for a trip out to the east coast to have a look at some of the Sustrans trails including the old railway line from Hull up to Hornsea. Feel free to join us for a much flatter ride than recent weeks.

Gary is riding the Bowland 200k Audax on Sunday (8am Denshaw). Anyone fancying joining him, full details are on Audax UK website.
I can't make it for a long day on Sunday so I'm riding the Hartside 200 from Aldbrough St John on Saturday - entries still open.
Good luck to Brian on Saturday as he defends his Vtta National 25 mile Championship at Newmarket.
And congratulations to Mel for winning his age category in last Sunday's Buckstone's Road Race. Mel's been in brilliant form this season, last weekends success following on from the previous Sundays overall KoM in the White Rose Sportive.

Its Calderdale CTC's Red Rose 200k Audax this coming Sunday, 8am from Oddfellows Rooms, Prescott Street, Halifax.
The following Saturday, the 29th I've entered a 100k rough stuff Audax from Newby Wiske, North Yorks. Take a look at it on the AUK site, looks good and with a checkpoint at The Lion Inn on Blakey Ridge it will be an excellent day out and leave Sunday free to watch the TdY travel through Calderdale.

HQ (HX4 8JG) as usual Greetland Sports & community Centre. Race starts at 10.00, Sean Smith is organising.
This year Sean due to police stipulation as had to reduce the field size and organise a temporary road closure. The police will i'm sure be monitoring the event so its important we provide as much support as possible to aid riders and safety. The event should finish by around 12.30 when i believe Pie & Pies will be available at HQ. Many Thanks

If the weather behaves as forecast then I suspect the BEST BIKE will be getting a first outing of the year.

A good club run out to the magnificent Birkin Tea Rooms last Sunday although we did get a tad wet on the return journey. This coming Sunday its a pleasant ride up Wharfedale, Buckden Triangle and back down to Kettlewell for a bite to eat at Madame Zarina's. Meet 8.30 Denholme Gate or 9am Skipton roundabout, Keighley.

I've arranged to meet Simon at Shelf roundabout at 9am on Sunday for a steady ride out to Birkin Cafe, all welcome to join us of course but if you're looking for something a little more challenging there's the Leeds Mercury Reliability Ride from Otley at 9.30am, see http://leedsmercurycc.blogspot.co.uk/ for full details. Would have loved to ride it myself but licking my wounds from being run down by a lorry on Wednesday.

As you can see from this 'Strava art', Martin Gargett seems to have found the experience disappointing - perhaps due to the off-route excursion via Rochdale:
Meanwhile, the Condors were smiling all the way round:
And a rider on the short route was positively laughing:

Busy weekend coming up with the North West Passage Audax on Saturday and the 3RT Reliability Ride on Sunday.
I'm giving the NWP a miss this year but I understand that Mel is bringing a crack team over from Wharfedale to fly the colours at the sharp end and Simon (says) he's going for a more measured approach. Details as per Audax web site, entries on the day accepted.
All being well I will be riding the 3RT Reliability Ride which starts from outside the Ritz in Brighouse at 9am on Sunday. According to the Strava route its 62.6 miles with 6954 ft of climbing, finishing at a hostelry at the top of Rastrick . £4 to enter on the day. The route and GPX (or TCX if you prefer) can be found at https://www.strava.com/routes/7314947 Be warned, Brian and Grimpy are threatening to join me.

This Sunday the 5th of February its the Drighlington Bicycle Club's Reliability Ride. The start & finish is at the Drighlington Cricket Club (turn right on Station Road just before the cross roads in the centre of Drig and you can't miss it). Tom Brabbin from the Imps has kindly created a GPX route for your GPS which can be found here - https://www.strava.com/routes/7380908
Its a 9am start and costs £4 to enter. We are going to have a PACT again, Obviously its not compulsory for Condors to be in this pact but please make it clear if you are - if you are we stick together.
