Sunday Ride 11th February 2018

February 13th, 2018

Six hardy souls gathered at the Humber Bridge for yet another cold, but bright, ride. The strong westerly wind created the usual turbulence around the bridge towers which were expertly managed by all. It was also good to see Dudley again, he accompanied us to Deepdale where we enjoyed a welcome warm by the blazing log fire. We left Dudley enjoying a second cup of coffee and onto Elsham for lunch and a chance meeting with Colin.

Well stacked wood at Deepdale.

BMW Bully on Bracken Single Track National Cycle Route 1

January 15th, 2018

Whilst most drivers are considerate to cyclists on rural roads, last Sunday we encountered a particularly ignorant and dangerous driver speeding towards the 3 leading riders with lights flashing. The drivers knowledge of the highway code rules appeared to be none existent during this incident of uncontrollable road rage.

The police have acted upon data from the on bike video in similar cases of dangerous driving.

Rule 110 – Do not use headlights to intimidate other road users.
Rule 154 – Country road use
Rule 155 – Use of single track roads with passing places
Rule 167 – Passing Cyclists
