Sunday 9 May - MTB again!

Hi chaps it feels more like March than May but I suppose we should still make the effort.
Good luck to Pete on the Audax from Richmond, and anyone else who is on for the long miles.
Robin has demanded mountain bikes again. Apologies. 08:30 at Robin's. Ring me if you need directions. The route is open for discussion but let's see if we can get this wind behind us all day.
Ride report - mostly for my record because it was a great route. Mytholmroyd, Spencer Lane, Studley Pike, rock garden, Warland reservoir (Melv put the hammer down now that we were on a flat track), cross at The White House & through the "badlands" to Pennine Way bridge over the M62, descent round & down under mway to Hollingworth Lake (and we got here all off road!) . Quick road section to the canal bank the past Summit locks to Tea wagon (at last). Right over canal bridge up Deanroyd Lane onto steep climb (part of Mary Towneley loop) . Walk and & admire the view. Lumbutts Rd to Mankinholes. London Road again. Descent to Hebden Bridge including the little underpass (be careful here on this slightly technical descent - or else be a better rider than I am. Never mind only my pride was hurt). Sustrans back to Lud Foot & Goitside track up from Ludd to home.
