Halifax Sailing Club MTB Challenge

Ian D & Ian G ventured out early this morning to take part in the Halifax Sailing Club Mountain Bike Challenge. A very demanding 25 mile off road route.
It was Ian's first go at a proper mtb event, after being talked into it by Ian D. The weather was unbelievably windy (force 8) and the terrain was very tough. Ian G finished in a very respectable time , even though he lost his rear wheel at one point ! His finishing comment was "the London Marathon was a piece of cake compared to this !" I think that's what he said anyway !!
Next year Ian ?

Clowne 10k Canal/Trail Run

SUN 22nnd May
Clowne 10k Canal /Trail Run
Well organised but not totally flat(only the canal section!!)Mostly off road with STILES that are far too high for people with SHORT legs and if you are not fast enough to be in the front have to queue to get over them.However a good coolmax tshirt for all runners(pity it was red). A clubhouse with a bar so Rich had his pint and for me a welcome sports massage for my short legs.Rich got 1st over 60 prize.
