Due to the https://www.humber-half.org.uk/ the committee have moved the Sunday ride to the following day – the bank holiday Monday.
CRC CHARITY RIDE 2017
This year’s Charity Ride will be held on Saturday, 8th July 2017 with rides starting from the Methodist Hall, Hallgate, Cottingham (the one used by Cycling UK/CTC). A little different this year, proposal is for three different rides….
Ride 1 – 06:00 hrs depart, 50 miles to Howden
Ride 2 – 09:30 hrs depart, 60 miles to Millington
Ride 3 – 15:00hrs depart, 50 miles to Hornsea
Support at Cottingham will be provided by Beech Holme Tandem Club but the Methodist Hall will only be open from 08:00 hrs to 16:00 hrs.
Donations – £20 entry for the day plus whatever else you can raise can be made direct to the Club account which is TSB Bank, Sort Code & A/C No. available on request (firstname.lastname@example.org) . This will ensure that all monies raised will go to the Charities and not into the coffers of Internet Charity Websites.
You can participate in all any single ride, any two rides, or even all three – whatever suits you.
Riding on a cold crisp day can be a pleasure..
Today’s ride was much dryer than last week’s deluge ridden trip.
It started off with 31 riders in three groups, all following a similar route on the South Bank of the Humber.
On the way we passed quite a number of cyclists but seemed to have chosen a similar route as the Brigg cycling club, it was nice to see them.
For some there was a quick coffee stop at Caistor where large quantities of bacon & coffee were consumed before heading home.
I spotted this site the other day..
The cartoons are simple, fun and pick up the enjoyment that cycling can give you.
I took ownership of a very apt tea towel, so I could be reminded of what I enjoy when doing things I don’t enjoy!
Please visit Dave’s site – have a look at the cartoons, laugh at them them and then when they’re back in stock please buy one of his tea towels!
If my first year with CRC has shown me one thing it has been that where there’s an obstacle in my way, be it hill or distance travelled, I will succeed where before I have failed.
Let us not beat about the bush, cracking your first 100 miler is a milestone in any cyclists book. I had a nemesis in the Etape Eryri (2014) in that I rode a 75+ course over 5000ft of climbing on a hybrid bike & I will not lie that I walked nearly every hill going. That was a defining moment in my cycling journey, I would purchase a road bike and do my utmost to conquer my nemesis.
Roll forward to October 2014, I joined CRC and thought I would be able to keep up on a ride to Sledmere. Wrong, dropped and I was walking every little incline going. With a number of the group ably guiding me back home the only thing I saw for that entire ride back was Chris’s rear wheel.
