Cleveland wheelers rough stuff challenge ride / sat 18th Aug / 09.30 depart Fletchers farm

Hi wheelers. It’s time to get off road again with our rough stuff challenge ride, departs fletchers farm at 09.30 sat 18th Aug. The route takes in Ingleby incline and a loop around Baysdale, finishing back at Fletchers farm, all rideable on CX bikes. Fortunately I’m unable to lead the ride this year as I’m away on hols, so there’s less chance of it all going horrible wrong! I have brought in some real experts this time with Ian Fryet kindly volunteering to lead the ride accompanied by our top off road experts Marc Pickersgill and Ian Thompson. Please can I ask that machines are in a reasonable state of repair and up to the task and that you carry your own spares, we have seen all sorts of contraptions attempting the ride in the last few years. If you require mechanical assistance with your bike beforehand then please shout up as there are wheelers members including myself that may be able to help you out. Points for this ride go towards the tourist trophy, please see the link to the website for further details below. Enjoy your day out. Thanks, Dave k
