2018 Charity Ride to Scarborough & Back

For the last three years the club have organised a charity ride to Scarborough and back raising funds for some great causes. This year we were raising money for Olly a six year old local lad to hopefully secure him a motorised wheelchair to make his life a little easier. This is the tale of the weekend

9.30 Ride to Harley Gallery

A spot of climbing to begin with - not hills, Gates. As we arrived at the cricket club and following recent events we had to climb the gate to get into the cricket club car park. Well most of us did some found the gap in the fence and rode through that way.

9:30 ride to Askern Lakeside Cafe

A sunny ride with remote controlled yacht racing included.

8:00 Club Ride to Humber Bridge

Every year we try to ride over the Humber Bridge, this year it took more organising than usual

9:00 Club Ride to Baslow

There are millions of pounds worth of satellites and computers used to create accurate weather forecasts but did we listen? A tale of Velominati Rule #9

Sunday outing to Clumber Park

Lots arrived early at the cricket club to find potential 9.00 riders opting for a 9.30 nattering class and other normally 9.30 riders arriving to report on an accident on the way into Tickhill from the Bawtry direction. Lots of guesses but no real knowledge of what was happening so we did what we do well and made it up! The general opinion was that the 9am team had come upon an accident and stopped to help. How wrong can we be!

9:30 ride to Skyways Bar

A great ride to Netherthorpe airfield.

9:00 Club ride - Adrian's tour of Retford

With a poor weather forecast it was touch and go whether anyone was going to turn up for the 9:00 ride this week, looks like we're made of stern stuff in Tickhill!

9.30 Ride to Leger Lakes

A lovely Sunday morning greeted us, bright but not yet too warm and as we grew in numbers we had plenty to talk about, a new face to greet and an old face looking for witnesses to an accident 2 years ago. As always we watched a muttering between Matthew and Paul before forming into 2 groups and setting off.
