STW Dales ride – 28th June 2009 – Interested ??
Following on from this thread, Ton has since discovered that he cant make it, so I’ll take up the mantle of organising it.
Meet 9.30 onwards, looking to be riding for no later than 10am.
The route is a whisker under 30 miles with quite a lot of climbing and is pretty arduous, with a steep climb straight out of Settle. I would say that this will be the hardest of these recent STW rides. It will be a full day in the saddle, probably not getting back to Settle till maybe after 5pm if its a big group. Please bear this in mind if you are thinking of joining us. There will be a pub stop for refreshments at either Litton or Arncliffe.
I’ll post the route up tomorrow hopefully, but once we hit Littondale there will be few options to curtail the ride.
Pace will, as ever, be relaxed.
Following the points raised in this thread, it is worth pointing out that if you come you do so at your own risk (cant believe I am actually typing this).
So, who’s up for it.Posted 8 years ago
Bloody cracker,ta dave, weather was spot on. will post a couple of piccies up tonight, mainly of a gifted 15 year jumping 20ft plus.
Oh to have confidence and balls!
It took me 1/2 hour to work up to a 3ft drop off. My ‘drop-off mojo’ appears to have well and truly left me.
That new DB Alpine ain’t half slack, may take a bit of getting used to.Posted 8 years agosimonralli2Member
the rise of the “maybe” babies…
Humble apologies. I interpreted the title of the thread as asking for those who were interested, not for those who know this far in advance that they are free and totally definitely going to be there! Next time I express an interest in a ride you will have my 100% undying comitment to the cause which I will lay down my life for in order to be there. That good enough for you Mr Barnes? 😀
Or maybe I’ll just stay at home and ride Mabie.Posted 8 years ago
As well as us on our blingy bikes with big forks etc, some other guys were there on some nice DH/big All Mountain stuff (Cannondale Perp/Orange patriots etc)
‘Ickle’ Johnny was on his commencal meta 5 and was making us look old and ungifted.
Which is not unsurprising, as that is what we arePosted 8 years ago
