This Weekend

Grimpy travels to Merseyside this weekend to put to final preparations into place before catching the overnight ferry to the continent on Wednesday. On Friday he will be racing in the World Masters Cyclo Cross Championships in Belgium. Good luck John from all your team mates for a trouble free ride, we will be there in spirit.

For a more relaxed Sunday join us on the club run to Langsett via Clifton, Kirk Heaton & Emley Moor. Home via Dunford Bridge and Holme Valley. Meet Brighouse (Sainsbury's Roundabout) 9am.

Whilst most of us have slipped seamlessly into the social season Grimpy continues to feed his competitive nature preparing for the Masters World Champs. Looks like it was a piece of cake judging from the smiles on his face - everyone else was complaining about he mud.

Whilst Grimpy was enjoying a walk in the park Chris and the Wednesday night Mytholmroyd gang enjoyed a walk up Helvellyn. Chris and Dan Annison choosing to have a good warm-up on the way to the Lakes.

I can't blog a club-run for this coming Sunday as I'll only be out in the morning (going to spectate at the Shibden 'Cross in the afternoon). Nigel's intending to sort something so keep your eye on the blog.

Sunday 6th November

Meet Shelf Roundabout 9am for How Stean Gorge cafe via Norwood Edge, return over Greenhow and Addingham Moorside. It is November now so in keeping with the 'Social Season' ethos I'm hoping that the run will stay together (or at least re-group at summits). It goes without saying that winter bikes with guards will be the norm from now even if no rain/snow/hail/ice/salt is forecast.
(If the weathers not too good we'll cut the ride short by visiting the new cafe at Toft Gate, Greenhow)

The following youtube link takes you to a video of last Sundays National Hill Climb Championships at Matlock. Chris appears momentarily about half way through (rider no. 95). Take a look and be inspired to ride it in 2017

Best wishes for a speedy recovery go out to Peter Crowther who came off his bike when he hit a patch of oil on the road over in Oldham last Monday. Peter spent six hours being patched up at Oldam A&E but was not detained. He sounded more concerned about the health of his new Dolan titanium super-bike which sounds like it will require surgery. Hope to see you out again soon Peter.
