This is what happens when you ride down a track whilst the farmer is cutting the hedge everyone punctured except Brian. A snap from last Sundays MTB ride around the tracks south of Huddersfield.
Whats happening this Sunday? Does anyone fancy a potter round the lanes north of York for a change of scenery? If so we'll meet 0830hrs Shelf roundabout.
Don't forget the Northern Dales Audax from Arnside YH on the 6th of Sept

Our two fixed points happened to be Brighouse and Holmfirth returning via South Yorkshire to Brighouse. I can truly say we were pioneers, boldly going up hills no cyclists have gone up before (well not on a trip from Brighouse to Holmfirth).
After climbing the cols of Upper Heaton, Emley, and Thurstonland, with numerous shorter leg breakers thrown in along the way, we finally arrived at Holmfirth. Resisting the blandishments of the Wrinkled Stocking we pressed on over the hors category climb of Hade Edge to the bacon and egg feed station at Langsett.
We returned via Silkstone and High Hoyland, then climbed Emley once again, but this time from its southern flank, before retracing our steps back to Brighouse.
All good stuff – quality training for the Three Peaks!
