A final sting in the tail up Priest Bank at Farnhill and then over to Bradley.Sean had a noticeable tuft of grass attached to the top of his helmet!He had fallen off, landing head first.Tonights appetiser was Ellers Road out of Sutton, always seems steeper and goes on for longer than last time, but at least traffic free riding due to a road closure.Paul was stationed strategically with spare wheels and final emergency rations.Pictures courtesy of Paula S and her new iPhone!But we had to get up this hill first!Paul N and Chris R (support Team) took possession of a variety of gels, bananas and drinks with a list of projected timings at the two key dibber points: Cold Coats and Ribblehead.They were chased and eventually caught by a late starting Jo who gained yet more Strava Cups in doing so on her new bike!The 30 milers set off joined by a guest rider in Skipton for the Yarndale event ensure discount coupons making a small group.

We were heading today for Karl and Wendys new place near Lawkland where we had been invited to assist in house-warming them in their new abode.Thanks to all those who made it and thanks for apologies from those unable to make it on the night.Enjoying the panorama at Askwith Moor Lane top.This road was a great way to get across to our destination without needing to use the busy A65 at Giggleswick which we saved for the way back!The route took us up to Linton.Note: check charge on lights regularly!
