Tuesday night club run, 4th August. 6pm Ayton

Hi all. Tuesday night club run meeting as usual, Ayton tourist info car park at 6pm for 6.10 set off. All welcome. Hopefully the rain will go away by 6pm, but it’s looking windy. So think we will do a nice little club run route. Out to easby, Ingleby, Broughton, clay bank long side, left back to Ingleby, battersby, kildale station, gribdale, regroup back at the Buck. See who turns up for the groups. I will lead a steady group if needed. Also option for fast chain gang group if anyone would like to do that. See you all there.


Mountain challenge ride report. Sunday 2nd August.

Another great Cleveland wheelers challenge ride day out today tackling the mountain ride. 30 riders rolling out of Ayton this morning in the rain. The ride quickly split in to ability groups once over kildale. Also a few incidents on the treacherous Haygate bank descent in to Rosedale today with Rob Maude in the group I was in hitting the deck on the steep right hander and sustaining a nasty cut to his arm. Then guest rider Tony Gilby coming unstuck on the same bend and possibly braking a collar bone. Thanks to the parents of young Ryan Nesbit who were following in a car for taking Tony to hospital. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope he hasn’t been put off Cleveland wheelers rides.
First back to fletchers farm from the extended route (not that it’s a race) was Col Jemson, pursued by Paul Leonard and Glen McCuscar who notably rides from Rosedale and back where he lives to take part in these rides.
Please note that for added value for your pound next year we are going to stick in the Newley resurfaced gribdale to Kildale road in to the start and possibly finish of the course. This won’t increase the mileage but will significantly increase the climbing.

Thanks all for making it a great morning out and thanks once again to Brian and Margaret Bevis for their excellent officiating. Dave k

Evening Series Week 15 – 23 July 2015

Please find the results of last week’s event here.

Congratulations to Tricia Bell whose time of 23:00 knocked over half a minute off the ladies one lap record. No mean feat as that record, which was set by Catherine Hare (now Williamson), had stood for 15 years.

Tuesday night club run. 28th July. 6pm. Ayton tourist info car park

Hi all. Tuesday night club run meeting as usual, Ayton tourist info car park at 6pm for 6.10 set off. All welcome.
Sorry the post is out late this week. I have been very busy, also I keep finding myself places with no 3G signal. What did we do before 3G?
Anyhow the weather is looking pretty poor tonight with heavy showers forecast, also I’m unable to make it again tonight so I’m going to suggest see who turns up and sort yourselves something nice out. Hopefully get back to normal next week if the weather ever improves?
Have a good ride anyone that goes out. Dave k

Cleveland wheelers 100 mile challenge ride.

Hi wheelers. Sorry I have been slow putting this out but here’s the list of riders that took part in the wheelers 100 challenge ride last Sunday. 3 groups made it around the course which was made far more testing by a rather nasty westerly and a few heavy showers which made the ride out to Barnard castle and the approach to the Stang particularly nasty. So well done to everyone. It was a great day out. Next year I may just tweak the route a little so we turn left at Caldwell and cut through the lanes and over the wooden suspension bridge to Whorlton and in to the back of Barnard castle near Bowes museum,. It will be far more pleasant and scenic than the A67. Also will finish back at Ayton either at fletchers farm or possibly outside the buck for a pint and some chips! That will take it from 98 miles to 101.

Cleveland wheelers 100 mile challenge ride participants. ( in no particular order as it’s not a race!)
