Figure of Eight Bike Ride – 1st. & 2nd. July, 2017

Well, that’s another Big Bike Ride completed. 50+ miles Saturday, and 80+ miles Sunday. Thankfully, we were blessed with good weather, although the westerly wind was energy sapping. Some outstanding scenery, particularly on the first day (Crook O’ Lune to Scorton). All in all, wonderful camaraderie and company has helped make this an enjoyable and memorable weekend.

My grateful thanks to all who have taken part.

The Cyclists – Dave McKee, Dave Barr, Dave Kenworthy, John Parkinson, Creag Williams, Paula, Chris O’ Brien, Bob Avery, Ian,

The Publicity – Glenn O’ Brien, for being “snappy happy”, i.e. taking all the photos. We can’t wait for the write up, Glen!

The Backup – Robert Ward, for acting as chauffeur, and keeping we cyclists supplied with the all-important liquids, and bananas.

My thanks to Dave McKee, Dave Barr, and Tom Cutler for helping to organise the Ride.

If you’ve all enjoyed the Ride, and I hope you have? Then we’ll do it all again next year. Different route!

“Ultimately, The MCF 2021 Festival will benefit from our exertions”

Thank you all again!

Kindest regards,

Ian
