HMCC's second big day is only weeks away, as promised this will be an attempt to run last years ride - as last year the roads we will be taking on are unfamiliar to most, narrow and very steep - if the roads are wet I wont be there however the date set is 31st July so hoping for a dry sunny day.

The route - Meet in south lakes I will post closer to the time re car parks etc.

A Group Scorton / Trough Loop

on Thu, 02/06/2016 - 23:20

Weather looks good for Sunday so I'll step up and take a ride out via Preston to Scorton then back up over the Trough and Jefferies. Post hills it will be time to pin our ears back and head for home!

If we have enough takers we'll go for an 8am start so we aren't out all day.

The rides aimed at A group riders to keep the pace and temp high.

(Not) The Captains Ride - The Trough - Sun 24th April

on Wed, 20/04/2016 - 13:12

As posted the Captain cannot make Sunday so you're stuck with me. I have mapped a route that I intend to take the group on - the forecast looks good BUT if we get a bit wet/cold or we get a few mechanicals then I may make some changes on the fly to ensure we get back mid afternoon - however currently the plan is to make this a century - the ride breaks up into 3rds - the first 3rd is flat, the second 3rd is very hilly with gradients hitting 20%+ and the final 3rd is relatively flat but the pace may ramp up a bit as eager people drive the group home. 

Plan is to head North, keeping off the A6

Alternative A Group Ride

on Tue, 19/04/2016 - 16:32

Chilling prior to Mallorca next week so no captains ride for me. Will take an alternative A group ride from the shop. Route TBC but will be relatively steady and suitable for strong B group riders who aren't doing the captains ride.

Club Trip 2016

on Mon, 18/04/2016 - 14:51

I am re-posting this to bring it back to the front of everyones minds.I have  booked for Friday/Saturday 24/25th June 2016 at Foel Ortho again. I have booked the farmhouse (sleeps 16), the bunkhouse (sleeps 12) and the treehouse (sleeps 2). So far I have 22 takers, please see all the details in the Forum. I need at least 1 more taker to have the full  funds to pay for the booking. I usually provide all the breakfast basics plus the odd drink but will need a few more takers so I have the funds to do that. It is a great social and cycling weekend, open to everyone.

It is only a couple of months

Spring Rake

on Mon, 22/02/2016 - 19:40

Posted this up on Facebook and looks like we have a few takers.

On Sunday 28th I will take out a group to Ramsbottom - Route attached but basically out to Rivi, over Sheephouse, Belmont then following a similar route to the Roman Road. At Edgworth we then turn for Ramsbottom and take on the Rake. For those that haven't atempted this climb, it isn't in the 100 climbs book, nor has it been used as a National Hill Climb for nothing.
