Staveley – November 7th – CANCELLED

It will sadly come as little surprise to everyone that Saturday’s event in Staveley is now cancelled. It was really great that the event had reached capacity and we were confident that our Covid precautions would make for a safe event – however, the change in the rules means that it’s no longer possible to go ahead.

An email will go out to those who had entered later today with refund & transfer options.

We’ll keep December under review and make a decision when it’s a bit clearer what restrictions will be in place.

Stay safe everyone!

Next event – Staveley – 7th November

Despite the Richmond event taking place on the wettest day since records began, it went really well and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the Covid safe practices worked successfully.

So, the next event is on Saturday 7th November, based at The Royal Oak, Staveley, near Knaresborough. As with Richmond, there will be a maximum capacity for the event (50), so please enter online to confirm your place.

Online entry here (until midnight November 4th or event full)

Entry will be online only (i.e. no entry on the day and no spare maps).

Riders will set off solo or in pairs at 2 minute intervals between 9.30 and 10.30. When you enter, you can choose one of 3 waves (9.30 – 9.50 | 9.50 – 10.10 | 10.10 – 10.30). We’ll allocate individual start times when people enter, and then publish the list on the website a few days before.

We are grateful to the pub for being the evnt centre, however, Covid restrictions will mean providing some details in advance for food – we’ll email everyone who enters closer to the day.

The event is planned to go ahead based on the current restrictions, obviously if those change then we will review the status of the event.

Full details here: NYMBO Winter 2020-21 v1

Here are today’s results. Richmond Results

Great to see 31 riders turn up despite the weather and they all came back having thoroughly enjoyed it.I enjoyed planning the course in much better weather and hope the fitter riders didn’t mind being forced to head to the NW of the map but it is cracking countryside.

Today’s winners can have a free ride next month so please send an email via the NYMBO web page rather than enter online. 

  • M21 Nuno Cerqueira
  • M50 All Powell
  • W21 Louise Gossage & Clare Barber

  • Gen Andy & Verity Chapman-Gibbs

Thanks to Richmond Golf Club for allowing the event to go ahead in the current circumstances. Hope to see you next month somewhere near Harrogate. 

Thanks to Steve Willis for organising an excellent event – after such a big gap in our events, hopefully this one marks the start of a successful winter season.

Next event – Richmond – October 3rd

When we finished the Ilkley event on March 14th, I don’t think anyone expected that our next event would be in October (panic supermarket buying seems a very long time ago!).

However, it’s great to be able to announce that our next event will be on Saturday October 3rd, based out of Richmond Golf Club and planned by Steve Willis.

Enter online here by midnight Thursday October 1st

It will be a ‘treasure hunt format’ event, and there will be a maximum of 40 riders. Entry will be online only (i.e. no entry on the day and no spare maps).

Riders will set off solo or in pairs at 2 minute intervals between 9.30 and 10.30. When you enter, you can choose one of 3 waves (9.30 – 9.50 | 9.50 – 10.10 | 10.10 – 10.30). We’ll allocate individual start times when people enter, and then publish the list on the website a few days before.

  • The blank map will be posted here a week before (no printed versions at the event)
  • You’ll need a pen to write down your answers
  • Solo or in pairs every 2 minutes between 9.30 and 10.30
  • Please arrive just 20 minutes before your start time but don’t go to the start until 2 minutes beforehand.
  • You can use the toilets beforehand but no cycling shoes or helmets in the club house please and use the hand sanitiser
  • You will mark your own answer sheet when you finish then give your score to Steve Willis.
  • Refreshments will be on sale afterwards but you must sign the ‘track & trace’ list, use hand sanitiser, maintain social distancing and sit in groups of no more than 4

There will be no prizegiving but the 5 category winners will receive a free entry for the next event.
A Senior Men
B Veteran Men (M50+)
C Women
D Mixed Pairs
E Generation/Junior Pairs

Hopefully, we’ll also be able to run similar events from November through March – details to follow soon!

Hope to see you there – check back for updates over the next couple of weeks
