Hi all. Please see my amendment to the 50in4 info below. I had mistakenly put 08.30 to 09.30 / correction! sign on is 08.30 to 09.00 and to clear up any confusion with set off times I’m going to suggest 08.50 depart for steadier riders and 09.00 for the faster riders. But of course you can depart anytime you wish between these times once signed on. Thanks, Dave k
Hi all, just a reminder that this Sunday the 15th sept is our premier event of the season, the Castleton 50 in 4. 08.30 to 09.00, sign on and roll out from Middlesbrough Sports Village car park. ( suggest 08.50 steadier riders and 09.00 faster riders depart. Finish at the village hall Castleton opposite the co-op where refreshments will be available. This years event is doubling up as a charity rider to raise money for Teesside mind and cancer research. A couple of subjects that have effected and continue to effect Cleveland wheelers members, families and friends. A donation bucket will be available at the start and donations can also be made in exchange for refreshments at Castleton village hall.
Usual ride rules apply, please keep it tidy, and remember that part of the challenge is to navigate the route, this is not a lead read. However I am expecting ability groups to form fairly quickly on ormesby bank and clay bank which naturally tidies things up. Other than that, enjoy! And please remember, it’s not a race!
Thanks, Dave k
P.S. if anyone would like to donate some extra treats for the café then that would be most appreciated, ( I wouldn’t mind some savoury food on offer as well as cakes and scones! Sausage rolls and pork pies / food of champions ) food donations can be dropped at my house on Saturday.
Hi wheelers. It’s time to pull out the MTB and CX bikes again. This Saturday 24th Aug is the rough stuff challenge ride where my MTB makes its once a year apperence. Hope i don’t get mud on it? As part of the challenge ride series, tourist trial points are available towards the tourist trophy. Depart fletchers farm at 9.30, this ride will more than likely stay together as a group as hardly anyone knows the route! Including me! (I’m hoping my off road ride experts turn up otherwise we will have to make it up! ) Finish back at fletchers farm. Ride time approx 3 1/2 hrs, cut off 5hrs. Please see the info below for further details.
See you there, Dave k
A typically cold damp start to the evening series week 1 on the back up Ingleby course as seamer course was out of action with road works. But a good turn out with 30 riders. Not sure how we’re identifying the road bike catagory riders yet? Not sure either if the results sheet photo will appear below as Iv never tried to add photos to the website before?. Thanks, Dave k
Hi all, last minute change tonight on to our back up evening series course around Ingleby Greenhow due to roadworks appearing on skutterskelf bank on the Seamer course.

Hi wheelers. This Sunday 17th is the Northallerton 50 in 4 challenge ride. Hopefully we won’t have to cancel this year. ( remember the beast from the east last year! ). The ride departs from Marton Shops between 08.45 and 09.30. NOTE! This event is no longer a mass start ride due to safety reasons. Sign on and set off straight away, either in your small groups or individually if you wish? This event is free to enter. Please see the link to the website for route details. Let’s hope for some better weather this year? Thanks, and see you all there. Dave k
P.s anyone not wishing to take part can meet the club run as usual At Ayton for 9.30 set off, that’s if there’s anyone there?
