Events in May (Email Newsletter)

We have got a busy week coming up with 4 events in 7 days starting with a double at Pickering Forest on Saturday 12th May.

Dave Evans has planned an excellent Score event for the afternoon with 30 controls spread across Cropton and Newtondale Forests. The event centre is at Keldy Cabins where there is an excellent cafe and bike wash – but parking is on the forest road just north of the log cabins. Andrew Windrum has planned 3 testing courses using Dave Evans controls for the MTBO event in the morning. You are welcome to ride in both events but, if you do, you will have to ride non-competitively in the afternoon. We have only had 25 entries for the Score event and 5 entries for the MTBO event so please can you make sure that you pre-enter by next Tuesday so that we print enough maps for everyone. It is cheaper and easier for us if you enter online but you can post or email your entries if you prefer or just take the chance of getting one of the 30 spare Score maps by entering on the day.

Our first Summer evening score event is on Wednesday 16th May at the George and Dragon at Hudswell so you have the chance to ride around Lower Swaledale before a relaxing drink (and meal) in this pub which keeps cropping up in the Dales programme.

Then the following Saturday (19th) it’s the second NEMBOS event of the season at Grassholme Reservoir. Teesdale is another lovely and rarely visited area. No controls on Holwick Scar this year but 3 more private tracks and a control near Hannah Hauxwell’s old house so hopefully there will be more riders than last year

    We have got 20 entries for the MTBO event in the morning and 100 entries for the Score event in the afternoon which is excellent. There will be a few spare maps for entries on the day as usual – 10 in the morning and 30 in the afternoon. Parking is on the forest road north of Keldy Cabins so please follow the signs and don’t park around the cabins. Registration is in the excellent cafe which will be selling refreshments all day and there is also a bike wash and the Muddybums stall selling sports clothing. Dave Evans has planned an excellent course so let’s hope the forecast is correct and the tracks stay dry. Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday.
