Conrad and Jill have been hard at work planning the May event, here’s and update from them:
Jill and I have enjoying planning the event. We’ve hired Ingleby Greenhow village hall for the event centre so it’s a guaranteed downhill finish. We’ve put most of the Great Broughton to Chop Gate road (B1257) as out of bounds and all but one of the checkpoints is in the NYM National Park.
It’s given us chance to ride and walk bridleways we haven’t visited in ages over the likes of Urra and Cold Moor. Last weekend we did our last recce and the tracks were bone dry (will it last ?!!).
For those of you who can remember Richard Martin planned an event from Lordstones at the top of Carlton Bank a few years ago. The event will cover a similar area except we’re not going as far to the west as Richard did and covering a bit more to the east over Baysdale Moor.
Jill and Conrad
