Snow somewhat hampered this weekends planned cycling. Myself, Big Phil, Melvin and Paul Daly had entered the Wheelbase Spring Classic from Kendal and had been looking forward to a good looking circuit taking in the Lune Valley, Barbondale, Dentdale and Kingsdale. Fortunately the organizer had the foresight to cancel the event as early as Friday.
Single Simon and Padiham Chris were planning to do the Chirk 200k Audax, this was not cancelled and I understand that there were three starters although I have no idea if that included Simon and Chris.
Our Hon. Treasurer, Paul G and Peeps were on the entey list for the Fountains Monk'y-business 100k audax from Wigginton where better weather led to there being 17 starters, down from over 100 last year.
Surely this weather can't carry on and Spring is just round the corner. Buoyed by this optimism I have submitted an entry for the Monyash Peak 100k event from Marple on Wednesday 3rd of April, a great little circuit round the Peak District and a good warm up for the following Sundays Ronde Van Calderdale (there's also a much flatter 100k, An Icecream Wensdae, from the same venue on the same day). On-line entries still being accepted via AudaxUK website.
