17th & 18th January, 2015
Everyone congregated at 10:30am Saturday morning for the long awaited CW’s race team ‘away weekend’!
The two groups set off – the steady group taking the more direct, but extremely hilly route over the moors, and the faster group intending to head out towards Osmotherley & Hornby before picking up the main Scarborough road at Helmsley.
Due to road conditions, the fast group had a change of plan, deciding it would be safer to take the lower option – circling around to Northallerton, Thirsk and up over Sutton Bank. Adding the extra mileage put doubt in people’s minds…none more so than Martin Brearey – who then came up with a whole host of excuses for additional ‘stop’s’ – 3 x glove drops, 1 x puncture, 1 x grease on rim. Never the less the group worked well, passing Helmsley, Kirbymoorside and onto Thornton-le-Dale for a well deserved coffee stop, where the steady and fast groups converged.
