Monday Night Pub Ride
I think the plan was to start from the the Eagle and Child, whereupon the Rammy massive will whisk you up over the turbines and for a lap of Cragg quarry, finishing with a blinder of a descent.
I was also going to nip in and see if we could do some chip-related arm twisting for our return. There will be beer, but no floor show
We could even do an earlier start if our timetable is no longer dictated by Acid Zumba classes 😀 The same run took us a good couple of hours+ last time outPosted 4 years ago
Good stuff. Its a good job we’re not daft enough to go up onto the kind of place they’d bung a load of wind turbines. Oh…. hang on a minute….
I reserve the right to change the route depending on if there’s a very real chance of being blown off (fnarr fnarr) the moor. Having said that, it’ll be a laugh! 😀Posted 4 years ago
I’m not going to make it now chaps because the good Mrs B isn’t going to be home for at least another hour and the weird old bloke who lives next door on his own and stares at the kids playing on the street isn’t answering his door or id ask him to babysit.
That’s the last time I’m having kids!Posted 4 years ago
Hey, you lot must have got off sharpish.
Thought I was there on the dot but no-one around and no blinking red lights off in the distance…considered chasing up Cragg after you but decided it’s no place for a lady in the dark on her own…for the very same reason I wasn’t going to wait in the pub 🙂
I did climb up the bridle way pass Fisherman’s but didn’t spot any lights bobbing on the hillside.
I’ll make sure I am early next time just to be sure.Posted 4 years ago
Sorry we missed you. We were bang on time. Actually… That’s pretty unusual. We’re normally faffing and running late.
We had a good run. It was mad windy up at Cragg! Surprisingly enough for somewhere surrounded by wind turbines! Its dried everything out nicely though. Apologies to everyone for being even slower than usual. Quite an achievement. My knee has swollen up nicely after my first incident. The second one down Owd Betts was a joy to witness, I’m sure.

Good ride last night! Thanks for organising it Binners!
Sorry we missed you Jagsobo. We did wait until 7.45 before setting out. It was a bit chilly and breezy to be hanging around so once we got to the set off time and there seemed to be no one else coming, there was no hanging around… we were off!Posted 4 years ago
No worries..I literally must have cycled up as you headed off then…waited around a bit…then by the time I looked up the road you were out of sight.
Totally agree that unless someone had said they are categorically coming you need to head off at the planned time and its up to the person to make sure they are there.
Sounds like a good ride was had.
I’ll be early next time 🙂Posted 4 years ago
