  • Halloween Grizedale lakeland thriller.

    Halloween Grizedale lakeland thriller.

    An absolutely spooktastic hell raiser of a ride today, riders out were: Chunk, Chris Watson, Pete Tong, Red Rooster, Tyre, Tracey, Andy Cas, Pieeater, Dan 25, Knotty, Noddy, Roger, Daveyboy, and myself. After an amazing rocky downhill, it looked like a hellish start with losing one rider early on and then a ride ending stack off some roots and into a tree for Tyre (possible SOTY!) the omens looked bad! However once we got going all the demons were banished, and a spookily good time was had by al...

  • Carmill 28th October

    Carmill 28th October

    Good ride out last night, plenty out (with nuts) man flu'ers!! as Mr T would say. Think we had about 14, after Gaz dropped off early after not feeling to good. Fast blast out (well Pieater was leading)! conditions seemed bad in parts and ok in others, bit stange really. Some deep mud in Billinge woods, and at various points, no steps of woe, doom or peril. A fall for the Tong off the slag heap, but otherwise an incident free night. Back at the pub, Chris Watson wowed all with home made cake...

  • West Highlands Tour 20/10/10

    West Highlands Tour 20/10/10

    Tracey & I got settled in at a Hotel in fort William on Tuesday Evening after stomping around Edinburgh on Monday & I still haven't been up Aurther's Seat!!. We spotted a weather window for today with Frost to start then sun with snow forcast for 4pm (Thursday & Friday looking crap ) so with a route in mind I puswaded Tracey that it was now or never & we'll be alright if we take all the gear inc lights. This route is in the Guide book & also in MBR; a tour around Ben Nevis, 69km & 1700mt of ascent, three river crossings, 2 bothies & final 7km descent. We woke up so-early that we had to switch the lights on in the resturant & with no cooked breakfast in sight we set off at 7am in the frost....

  • Mary Towneley loop 19/09/10

    Mary Towneley loop 19/09/10

    Well what a difference a year makes, last year when we did this event the conditions were perfect, this year couldn’t have been a more different picture. The weather was changeable, that was it changed from heavy rain to very heavy rain at various points during the day. Not once did the sun show itself.

    Meeting at the school, our intrepid band of brave / stupid (delete as appropriate) Woollies joined up and registered for the event. Riders were: Clone, Knotty, Chris Watson, Carrot, Noddy, MLiptrot, Ste B, and me. We sat in the school with the rain hammering off the glass roof, and contemplated what we were letting ourselves in for. Eventually we put our race numbers on (although it is not a race!) and formed up ready for the off, it was clear that the conditions had put a lot of people off entering and the field of riders was much smaller than last year.

  • HOPE KILLER LOOP

    HOPE KILLER LOOP

    This famous and historic ride for the club (it was published in an article on the club in MBR in Feb 04) certainly lives up to its name and reputation.
    20 riders up for the challenge were: Neil, Roger, Eric, Spesh, Tyre Kicker, Tracey, Al, Chunk, Sidge, Steve Wiganer, Muddy Rider, Steve Busy Fool, John Retro boy, Georgina and her friend, Jonesy, Pands, Red Rooster, Terry and myself.
    Heading for hope for the start point in Castleton the area was shrouded in thick fog, which cleared ominously as the morning progressed, the scenery is truly spectacular and conditions were fine and dry. Tyres were prodded, bikes were readied and armour was donned even by riders that don’t normally wear it, an ominous sign, then off we set.

  • Pateley Bridge

    Pateley Bridge

    The 12 riders were: Roger, Tyre Kicker, Tracey, Geoff, Rambo, Chunk, Sidge, Paddler, Muddy Rider, Jonny P, Silverscoob and Myself.
    The route started rather ominously as we seemed to be driving towards the cloud and rainy skies however the worry proved unfounded as excellent conditions ensued. The ride started from the lovely village of Pateley Bridge, after a bit of faff and much prodding and poking and lifting! Of Tyre’s new super bike off we set.

    Jacobs Ladder 21st June 09

    Fifteen Woollybacks met up at Castleton car park – Tyre Kicker, Tracey, Eric, Santacruz, Rooster, Hendy, Hemlock, WN6ER, CHUNK, Bazza, Johnny P, Sidge , Turnerkid , Pieman and me. Talk of the Alps lot taking it easy was left in the car park.
    Ride off (9.30) was a little later than expected due to gimp suits , new tops and other body armour that had to be adorned.
