EYCTC Spring Challenge Rides Results & Photos

March 21st, 2017

Thirty people turned up for the ride on not a very pleasant day, there was a fairly strong wind with the occasional rain shower, a couple of riders came back soaked but most seem to have missed the worst of the rain. The 80 mile ride went into an area not much frequented by some riders, beyond Thixendale to Acklam and Buttercrambe. There was a bit of a sting in the tail out of South Cave and up Beverley Rd and this was after some short sharp climbs in the middle of the route. The 50 mile route was very much flatter but riders would have been battling a stiff breeze most of the way out and one that would have come from all directions on the way back. Most riders also tackled either one or two cafes on their way round which is as it should be on a day like it was. Everyone seemed to have enjoyed themselves and stayed for tea, biscuits and a chat in the church hall at the end.

Thanks to you all for your support and safe cycling.

Last Sunday the 12th April a loose dog on the dip on the Skidby Beverley Cycle Route caused an accident in which AA fractured his collarbone. Another factor was the mud in the centre of the road which caused skidding and both riders who went down to be covered in mud.
The same dog at the same place caused another accident on the 16th April, which left M on Crutches but without fractures. Police, Dog Warden and Council informed.
The 2 videos below are not recommended for viewing by spouses, partners, girlfriends or those of a nervous disposition.
