Brimham Rocks – 22nd March 2011

A new record…… 13 of us including new rider Paul (welcome) set out for a ride to Brimham Rocks and back.

Our early progress was stopped when Nick suffered a puncture but we got our bunch together again and set off down to Hampthswaite all chasing Matthew who is great on the descents. Up to Clint, Shaw Mills, Bishop Thornton and then eventually we found the back road leading to Brimham Rocks. As we know this is a great descent but turned out to be a long draggy climb. After a regroup we climbed up over the back of The Rocks which was great on such a clear night. A fast run back down the road through Hartwith and ending at Burnt Yeates and then back via Clint, Hampthswaite and Knox Mill with Duncan getting some serious training in towing Malcolm uphill whilst chanting “hills are my friends, they make me stronger!”

Rob’s data showed approx 31 miles at 14.7 mph. Great fun.
