April Committee Meeting Update

April 4th, 2018

Items raised during the April committee meeting included a report from Terry that requests had been made to Hull Council and East Riding Council to remove mud, stones and overhanging vegetation from a number of cycle paths. The Lazatt's and Skidby Dip cycle paths have been extensively cleaned and are now full width. The Sunday rides would start at 9am during June July and August. The George Herbert Stancer GHS memorial rides will be operated as a club run – see calendar –  route sheets or GPS files for the longer route via Thixendale are also available.


Sunday Ride 1st April 2018

April 2nd, 2018

Seven members met at Cottingham Green (April's fools day) on a cool, cloudy morning.
It was decided that we would go toward Beechwood Cafe by High Hunsley, Hotham, Cliff, see how we all felt, after a cold frosty start to the year, a lot of us where short on miles plus weather forecast didn't look good!
Somewhere along the route we loss Pete K, who I believe continued toward Allerthorpe and didn't stop for coffee!
Fed and watered we all felt Beechwood was a good turning point and made our way home. Pleased that we had made the effort and it didn't rain!
I did 46 miles

Sunday’s South Sunshine Ride

March 25th, 2018

Another good turnout for today’s ride over the Bridge to the Truck Stop for an early lunch, return via Deepdale Cafe where we missed meeting up with Ray and Terrry. Despite the cool northerly wind, a pleasent old style club ride, good company and a variety of conversational topics – from Rugby to Skiing via 100 mile time trials reminiscence, vegetarian options and bikes. Thanks Alan for leading us around your old haunts. More happy riders pictures below.

Thanks to Master Snapper John D, for composition advice.
