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?
Darlington Mowden Park R.F.C and SG Petch have teamed up to organise two charity bike rides to raise funds for the ‘My Name’5 Doddie Foundation’, set up by Doddie Weir (the former British & Irish Lions, Scotland and Newcastle Falcons rugby star), who was diagnosed with MND in 2017. The rides will take place on Sunday 5th May 2019 starting and finishing at the Mowden Park Arena in Darlington. The 100km will start at 8.00 am and the 50km at 10.00 am with routes around North Yorkshire. There will be family activities taking place at the stadium in the afternoon.
The idea was the brainchild of Peter Rees, an SG Petch customer and Mowden member whose friend Roland is also suffering from MND and was a keen cyclist – hence the event is called Roland’s Ride.
The cost of entry is £50 payable online as per the application and this money will go to the foundation; each participant will also receive a specially made cycling jersey* at the start of the event as shown below.
To take part in this event simply make your ride selection, fill out your details and pay your entry fee. Every rider gets a jersey.
* NOTE : The cutoff point to receive your cycling jersey on the day is February 28th 2019
