A few more updates

Chris climbs away from Ullswater
Congratulations to Padiham Chris who on Sunday, in wet and windy conditions, recorded 7hr 35min in his d├ębut Fred Whitton Challenge.
A good turn out for Mondays off road ride. Despite several of us having tired legs we went down to Sunny Vale and up Walter Clough Lane to Southowram, down Ashday Lane, along the top of Elland Park Wood then down through the bluebell carpeted woods to Elland.
From Elland it was up Hollins Hey Road to Old Lindley and on Turley Cote Lane, down through the deer park and up to Stainland. We then took a right off Beestonley Lane through Stubbing Wood and Black Brook to West Vale and Elland before jumping on the canal towpath which led us to Brookfoot and the Rooster.
More of the same next week - 6.30pm, Hipperholme Crossroads (I'll have to give my apol's though - away in Scotland).
