Hi guys sorry for another post but here are the details for the event,I,ve throw a website together not my bag but I,ve done my best as not everyone is on Facebook 🙂

Wheelbase Cycles have kindly donated 200 bottles of beer for the riders on their return
Various companies and individuals have donated bits and bobs for the raffle with the centre piece a framed artwork from Binners .T-shirts were requested, so we have had some done, all money from the raffle and t- shirts and entries(donation of ones choice) on the day will be going to Macmillan Cancer Care.

Well chuffed I made it round, personal challenge achieved:)Posted 9 months ago
Thanks to Richard and all the unnamed helpers, plus the riders along the way.
Funny thing is you camp, bivi on top of a hill miles from the population and you’re surrounded by biking folk!
Hope the guy who went OTB was OK.
What about Andy with the fatbike who had a tubeless rimstrip failure near Troutbeck? Tried to help, but we were short of kit and ideas! Did he get it sorted?
We had a great time, stayed in a good mood all the way round. First time I’d ridden the Puffin anywhere that rocky and rubbly, and it was perfect – keep motoring on the way up, get away with more on the way down. Giggling (nervously!) all the way down Garburn. JJims didn’t give too much away to the others on the road either.Posted 9 months ago
Big thanks to Rich and the other volunteers for making this happen, had a great time, even if I did ride my poor old bike into the ground!(Thanks to the guy at the top of Troutbeck who gave me cable ties to fix my hub!)
Was great to be so warmly greeted in my dishevelled state at the end-and a hot shower before my long drive home was a wonderful thing indeed.
Enjoyed chatting to some of you as you passed me, but also enjoyed some quality alone time too. Had some great spots – a Tawney Owl at 7 on Sunday morning, a Cuckoo on the climb up Troutbeck, and (I think) a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker near Chapel Stile.
I managed to lose my pump somewhere between Hawkshead and Breasty Haw-don’t suppose anyone picked it up? Silver Lezyne one?
Hope to see you all next year!Posted 9 months ago
Thinking about a rideable 200 🙂Posted 9 months ago
Thanks again Rich for organising this ride, it stepped up a gear from last year! I have to say its the only bike event i have been to that had a ‘before and after’ professional photoshoot, makes me wonder what you will pull out of the bag next year! 🙂 huge amount of money raised, with a special nod in the direction of the person that gave £5K – amazing generosity!.
Cheers to all the people I rode alongside, wether it was for a few miles or a day – everyone was friendly, encouraging and smiling – even with lost chains, destroyed rear mechs, mud and rain!
anyhoo, took a couple of shots..

Thanks nedrapier and postrich for the assistance. Learnt the folly of weight saving by omitting a spare tube 😳 Rich saved the day just as I was contemplating a slow walk down to a bike shop….
Nearly punctured Rich’s spare by trying to inflate it with three thorns still embedded in my rear tyre!! Luckily I realised in time and it lasted the whole ride and the one home. Luck stayed with me on the ride through Northants blackthorn trails arriving home with a twig attached to the still tubeless front 😕Posted 9 months agobrennakSubscriber
Ah one of the problems with an early start is you miss the photos, but without the early start I’d never have completed the ride. Now recognise many of the faces as they caught me up and enjoyed a bit of banter. Nice to see a few familiar faces, a couple from sporting JMC jerseys who I rode with a couple of weeks ago on a Monday Night Pub Ride round Cragg Quarry. a big hand to Rich and his many helpers, Rich is still working I had a walk into Staveley yesterday he was taking down the signage.Posted 9 months ago

Saw all you guys around the New Dungeon Ghyll on Saturday. We were walking back having bailed out of the Old County Tops fell race due to the horrible conditions high up. Great to see so many folk of all ages and bikes obviously having fun. Strangely appropriate location too as the first time I met Jenn was at the NT car park by the NDG when she rescued us from richpips winter Bob Graham attempt. Well done on the tremendous fund raising!Posted 9 months ago
