Glad to report that Phil has been plated and screwed and kicked out of LGI on Thursday. He may be bloodied but sounds unbowed, he even called in at Evans on his way home from hospital and bought a new bike. I think it may be a while before we see him tucking into a plate of chips on a Wednesday lunch stop but he was beginning to get too fit anyway. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
I think everyone enjoyed our trip to Wensleydale last Sunday, thanks to Ian for the above pic. taken outside our lunch spot. Can I suggest that we meet at the same times this coming Sunday, 8am Denholmgate, 8.30 Skipton Road roundabout, Keighley for another trip up into the Dales. I'm suggesting Coverdale, Jervaulx and Nidderdale but this can be amended dependent on the weather.
Veterans TTA National 50 mile Championships.
Brian took 2nd place on the podium at last Sundays Vets 50 Champs in Hampshire. Whilst we are all in awe of his achievements Brian himself was disappointed not to retain the trophy he had won for the previous 4 years.
A few imminent local events -
Saturday 27th August - The Old 240 Audax, 5.30am Mytholmroyd, a scenic 260 mile challenge organised by Chris Crossland and his CTC Calderdale team. Gary Mitchell is keen to ride, so am I dependent on the weather. Chris Smith may also be joining the fun.
Sunday 4th September - I've entered the Evans King of the Pennines sportive, a superb route and 1st class organisation from Skipton College. Unfortunately, and I did'nt know at the time I entered the Evans event it clashes with the Ravensthorpe 120 miler to Sutton Bank, a really good day thats very well supported by many local clubs. On top of that its also the Mary Townley Loop Challenge. A case of all the buses coming at once.
Sunday 11th September - Holme Valley MTB Challenge.
Sunday 18th September - Bronte Mountain Bike Challenge, Oxenhope.
