Pauls run over wheel!

Thursday Ride – Neutral Service!

Last weeks Thursday ride was an old favourite for me.  An easy start through Connonley and Carlton to Skipton and then on to Embsay and along the back road via Halton East to Bolton Abbey, before riding back to Glusburn via Ilkley and Silsden.

Disaster struck just after Embasy, when we’re riding single file along a singletrack road.  Anyway to cut a long story short, there was a tangle of bikes and a front wheel which had been run over by a car.  Luckily nuetral service arrived quickly (in the shape of Andy Wiggins, Skipton Cycling Club.  Many thanks to him) and sorted our Paul Fitz with a new wheel and we carried on.
