EYCTC Spring Challenge Rides Results & Photos
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.
