Warmest night of the week for the womens ride

This weeks womens ride was a little bit longer. It was the usual route to Skipton via Cononley and Carleton but extended to Silsden this week.

This Mondays Womens Ride

From this Monday the meeting time will be 6.45 setting off at 7pm at Glusburn Institute as usual.

The route is a few mile longer than last week.  Taking in Cononley, Carlton, Skipton, Kildwick and Silsden.  With a few small climbs but nothing major.

If you haven’t been out with us before, please do.  Everyone is welcome.  You don’t have to worry about holding everyone up as the pace is social rather than fast and we have regular regroupings.

At the top of Cocking Lane

Last nights Thursday ride…

For a change we had decent weather.  Not warm but sunny and dry and plenty of blue sky.  Couldn’t have been much diferent from the week before and that’s no doubt the reason for the record turnout.

As with most of our rides, it started with a climb.  We picked Paul Fitz up at the White Lion in Kildwick and headed up on to the moor.  Before decending through Draugton and riding along the gated road to Bolton Abbey.  Next destination was Ilkley via Nesfield (we’ll save Langbar for another week eh?).

The final real climb up Cocking Lane strung us all out but we hand a regroup at the top and some great photos courtesy of Steve Hannigan.

A great social ride enjoyed by all.  Just what South Craven is all about.

First womens monday ride

This weeks Womens Monday Ride

This weeks women’s ride will follow the same format we’ve been running for the last few week.  A 15 mile-ish route with a few small hills.  Any kind of bike is welcome as the pace is friendly but if you get enjoy it a drop handlebar is recommended.

If you have any worries about not being fit enough or not your not sure if you can keep up, please don’t be worried as nobody is left behind.  Also the great thing about cycling is your fitness really improves even with just a few weeks riding.

You don’t need to worry about being a member of the club in order to try it out but if you come regular, membership is £15 for individuals.

So come an give it a try. We meet at Glusburn Institute at 6.40pm and set off at 6.50pm.  Hopefully we’ll see you there.

Kildwick 10 01/05/2013

Great turnout last night.  Great weather, still a bit of wind but i quite like a head wind towards the Little Chef roundabout, it means you absolutley fly on the way back.  I was hoping for a personal best but in the end I was just short.

I was off number one as nobody else likes to go first.  So I was pretty surprised when numer 9 finished not long after me with a time of 19.42!  I was even more surprised to find out is Olympic Gold Medalist Team Pursuiter Steven Burke!

Also great debut ride by 13 year old Alex Barusevicus.
