Members reports of club rides 2012.

Sunday 17th Jun 2012
Blubberhouses via Rawdon.

Good turnout last Sunday, four tandems (Neil & Julia, Robert & Liz John & Janet and ourselves), thats the best so far this year, things are improving.

Neil and Julia lead the run starting on Otley Chevin, on a rare nice summers day. The ride was an easy 40 miles around the Washburn Valley, with an excellent lunch in the Fewston Heritage Centre. We were back looking around Chevin Cycles at 3.00PM

Many thanks to Neil and Julia for an excellent run.

We hope to be out on the ride meeting in Halifax on the 8th July, This will also be a steady ride of around 45 miles with a good cafe for lunch.

Regards Steve and Cheryl


Sunday 19th Feb 2012
Fountains Abbey via Ripley
Report by Steve & Cheryl.

Two tandems out today, John & Janet and ourselves. As forcasted the weather was sunny all day, we did 55 miles via Ripley to Fountains Abbey, but as the cafe was so busy we moved onto Ripon for lunch and returned via knaresborough. A few more tandems out would have been good, maybe next time ?


Sunday 29th Jan 2012
Waddington via Bolton By Bowland
Report by Steve & Cheryl.

Three tandems out today, John & Janet, Barry & Janet and Steve & Cheryl, not bad for a freezing winters day. It did stay dry with no wind, we just had to keep an eye out for ice on the road. Change of route, we decided to go to the cafe at Waddington via Bolton By Bowland and returning via Clitheroe, Downham and Barnoldswick. A steady 42 miles with a few hills to keep us warm. Thanks to Ruth at JD tandems for coffees at the start and finish.
