C2C & Charity Ride

The good weather brought Elmsall RC cycling members out in force last weekend. Saturday saw a big turnout covering the 60 miles route known as the Witches Nose, this was from J's Cycles in Knottingley and went via Womersley, Snaith, Carlton, Drax, Ullerskelf, Towton (famous battle), Sherburn in Elmet and finished at Birkin Fisheries. There were 3 group rides of all abilities. A charity ride organised by K Velo which raised almost £1200 for 2 local spinal units. Four lady members Anita Mariner, Jo Jarvis, Jayne Clift and Jane Wilson completed the ride.

Sunday was an epic day for Shaun White, Martyn Clift and Dave Hemingway who did the Way of the Roses ride from Morecambe across to the east coast of Bridlington covering 170 miles.

Sunday had John Martin 1:00:00 ( 25 mph) and Steve Scott 1:02:14 riding the Hartlepool CC 25 miles TT at Crawthorne to Knayton and back on the A168.

A total of almost 6000 miles were covered by club members last week, mainly due to the good weather.
