30 August - Grimpy's Birthday Bash

Grimps has arranged a "do" this Thursday from 9pm in the Brown Horse, Coley. There will be some food and, quite possibly, some beer. What more do you need?

There is the usual Imps ride first from Hx Post Office at 7.30.

26 August - Kettlewell

We haven't been to visit Madame Zarina's Cafe in Kettlewell for a while, so that is the plan for Sunday. Route is flexible but might well involve Arncliffe to Malham (or perhaps Arncliffe to Malham) at some point. I guess that means going up (or down) the side of the cove.
Meet 08.30 at Keighley roundabout and Melvyn can half-wheel us all day from there.

Sunday 19 Aug - MTB run

The weather is like Autumn and so are the club runs - the mtb season is starting early this year. So far it is Steve, Robin, Nigel and Ian meeting at 8.30 in Hebden Bridge at the Nutclough traffic lights (2 mins up the hill toward Pecket Well). After that we can go whereever is most wet/muddy and laugh at me falling off. Anybody else fancy coming along?

YCF 100

Brian pictured riding to 4th place in yesterdays YCF 100 mile time trial. In rather wet looking conditions he finished just one minute over the four hour mark.

As you can see from the above Grimpy's been doing a lot of posing recently. The top pic is from the podium of last Sundays BC National Road Races held in Staffordshire, John took silver in his age group once again conceding gold to his 'bete noire' Mick Ives.
The other photo is taken at the end of last Wednesday's cyclo-cross at Greetland All Rounders and includes Steve Cavell and former Condor member Andy Whitworth (propriator of Tri Cycling at Kirkburton). John not only took the over 60's but he also beat the over 50's. This was the last event in the Yorkshire summer series, Steve was 3rd vet 50 overall.
Brian appears to be going well (although he would no doubt deny it). I've managed to find a few of his results on the net from the last couple of weeks. He took bronze in the Vets National 25 mile TT Champs, the following week he won his category in the LVRC Road Race at Stokesley and last Sunday he was 5th overall in a quality all age group field in the Pennine CC '50' witha 1.52. He did'nt defend his National 100 mile title but will be riding the YCF 100 next Sunday.
