Cleveland Wheelers mountain challenge ride. 18th May. 9am

Hi wheelers. Just a reminder that this Sunday the 18th May it is the Cleveland wheelers mountain challenge (former tourist trial). This will take place instead of the club run and leaves Ayton tourist info car park at 9am. So please be there for 8.50 for your ride brief , sign on and pay £1 entry fee. Route handouts will be available. The standard route (45.1miles) takes us all the way through the Esk valley to Glaisdale where we descend through the town, then turn right at the phone box (signposted Glaisdale only) to head up caper hill. Then left and right towards Rosedale, right in rosedale and head back up to Ralph’s cross, straight over and back through westerdale and Hob hole to finish outside Suggits Ayton. 4hrs cut off time. We also have the addition of a bonus route (53miles) which goes straight on up Rosedale chimney over to Hutton Le hole, Farndale, church houses and Blakey bank before picking the main route back up at Ralph’s cross. Remember if you do the bonus route the cut off time is still 4 hrs. Brian Bevis will be back officiating and he’s very strict with his cut off times! Remember this is a self supporting ride, no route signs, back up or feed stations! Please see challenge rides on website for further details at
See you all there. Dave k

Hi Adam, yes anyone is welcome. Just be aware that the mileage of this event dosnt reflect the difficulty. It’s pretty tough. Also it’s a self supporting ride rather than a sportive so you need to be well prepared and need to study the route as riders won’t stick together on ths one, it quite quickly splits up in to ability groups. I don’t know what your ability is but just be prepared that you may be isolated on your own. Other than that, you only need to average 12,5mph to complete the standard route in 4 hrs so come and give it a go, and bring pleanty of money for the cafe! Cheers, Dave k
