Split times on the Ebor site at
It was great to see 68 riders setting off in the sunshine on Sunday morning. Everyone seemed to enjoy their rides especially those who completed the 100k route. The tracks were much drier than they have been all year but the southerly wind was tough to ride against across the moors.
Thanks to Richard Laley at High Rigg who allowed us to park for free andJens Strain for drawing an excellent map. Unfortunately, FC decided to charge the normal fee which works out at £2 per rider and Big Bear Bikes didn’t provide any sponsorship so the cost of the engraved glasses had to come out of the entry fee. However we will be able to donate £250 to the Scarborough & Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team.
Thanks also to everyone who helped on the day. My wife, Barbara, who looked after registration, John Dixon on the car park and the checkpoint marshals – Jens & Eileen Strain, Mike Nayler & Carol Donnelly and Frank & Sandra Appleton – plus Michael Brough who put out Controls 5,6 & 7.
Hopefully we will repeat the event next September but possibly in the other direction so that you don’t have to finish with the 2 toughest climbs of the day. Please let me know if you want to see any other changes. We failed to provide the GPS co-ordinates on the web page for you to download so please let me know if you can sort them out for next year. If you know how we can advertise the event more widely please let me know. It would be great to see 100 riders doing 100 kilometres next year.
