Thanks to the Dales Bike Centre for providing an excellent event centre and congratulations to the category leaders but I think we were all winners to ride for 3 hours in Swaledale on such a perfect day. I planned this permanent MBO course for the centre in March but very few riders have taken up the challenge. Hopefully, you have set the benchmark and more riders will try to match your scores or you may even decide to return and try again at the 5 hour event.
The next 2 NYMBO events will be ‘treasure hunt’ style events base on pubs in Nidderdale and Lower Wensleydale. The fliers are on the fixtures pages.
I have already posted the draft fixture list for 2014 (ProvisionalFixtures2014 (3rd Dec)) – and have now got planners for all of them except Dalby in September. Please get in touch if you want to have a go! Many of the dates, venues and time limits are only suggestions and I have not approached any landowners yet so please get back to me if you want to suggest any alternatives. Our average numbers were down to 87 this year and I don’t know why but I would like to see this return to 100 riders per event in 2014.
I am also planning both of the OMM Bike & Lite events next year. The Spring event will be in North East England on May 3rd/4th and the Autumn event will be in Northern England on September 6th/7th.
There will also be at least 2 MTBO events, the Moors Marathon as well as Le Tour so plenty of opportunities to ride in North Yorkshire again next year. Hope to see you there.
