A Cracking day out in Swaledale Gromet
I would like to say a load of thank you`s to all the guys and gals who turned up for the Swaledale ride and DeeJay for the planning it was a cracking day out with ace weather . And what a friendly bunch too
Big thanks to Stu and Brenda at the Dales Bike Centre for lending me a helmet after I left mine at home and the excelent coffee and cake
The Ride was awesome and the trails in perfect dry dusty condition.
and I am sure the others will be along soon with some pics and comments.
Nice to meet you all and count us in for the next onePosted 8 years ago
Superb days riding. As Ton says, Excellent company, superb route, simply stunning scenery, and of course the weather we booked was perfect.
It really is Gods own country up there and well worth the 2.5hrs driving. Big thanks to Dave and Steve for leading us and providing the Brass band at the end… although, and it pains me to say that points were lost for the closed tea room and the lack of gates!!!
Cheers guys… roll on the next one…. (Howgills 31st May)Posted 8 years ago
looked a piece of p!ss to be honest.
it is. It’s best to just ride it without fannying around peering over the edge first 🙂
How was Helvellyn
on the day it didn’t suit me – pushing and carrying my bike 750 vertical metres has lost its appeal 🙁 I did still get some nice pics though 🙂Posted 8 years agoyoshimiSubscriber
Just need to get a half a dozen more lengths delivered this week but pretty much done and case the edges – hardest part was getting the frame square and the right fall on it – resorted to having the dumpy level set up in the back garden – My neighbours thinkl I’m a bity of a geek now 😳Posted 8 years agomarsdenmanMember
Top day out – thankyou!
Particular thanks to DeeJay and Steve for
a. organisation and leading
b. sweeping me up when I was mostly ‘off the back….’ 😳
c. organising the weather!
Lowey – I owe you a pint / cake – it’s great to know there are still good folk out there – thanks for the return of the multi-tool 🙂
TeaTwo – for keeping me company ‘out the back’ – we’ll show ’em what speed is one day fella 😆
To one and all – thanks for your patience, I had a bliddy great day, its a long time since I’ve done such a Grand Day Out (couldn’t tell, or could you 😉 ) in such good company – I’ll keep up one day, promise 😀
Tom – get well soon fella
<Goes off to negotiate pass out for the Howgills> 😀
PS – Piccies are taking an age to upload – i’ll post a link as soon as… set includes some shots of DeeJay and Fore Gill Gate descenders…Posted 8 years ago
Set does not include anything beyond about 1/3rd the way round as I was too far off the back then…. 😳
