NYMBO Malham – 24th August 2019

Volunteers needed this weekend in the Dales!

After the recent flooding, the Yorkshire Dales National Park are organising a party of volunteers to clear the Langthwaite on Saturday 10th August. If you are able to join the working party you’ll find all the details on Eventbrite here.

The YDNP has published an article with information for visitors, and a map indicating the where the right of way is closed.

The Dales Bike Centre is still open and the NYMBO event in September is definitely going ahead. The roads from Richmond and Reeth are still closed so please approach from either Marske or Redmire. Steve may need to do some re-planning map before the OMM and NYMBO events in September.

Don’t forget our upcoming August events, maps to follow soon, enter online here:

Bishop Monkton Results – Updated!

The results for Bishop Monkton are finally updated with the missing riders who finished before the download problem was spotted. Click here to check yours.

Please let me know if there are any problems by email. I know there are still a set of results missing for John Birtwhistle – hopefully I’ll be able to fix that as soon as I get hold of the actual dibber as it looks like it wasn’t downloaded.

Apologies for the time taken to get this done – a combination of holidays and logistics got in the way. Also grateful for excellent support from the team at SportIdent to fix the files.

Bishop Monkton Report

Neil Reed planned an excellent event at Bishop Monkton, his report is below.

Results here and current League here – still with a couple of missing riders to include. Please let us know if any changes to Age categories etc are needed in the League scores. We’ll update this again when the missing riders are included.

After planning a couple of events in Nidderdale in 2017 and 2018 it was felt worthwhile planning an event in a slight different area hence Bishop Monkton near Ripon.

This is an area that I generally don’t ride in but I enjoyed my planning rides in February to May. I liked the more gentle undulating topography and variety of farm tracks, bridleways, single track together with some flat fast roads. I hoped this would provide an enjoyable challenge and the opportunity to cover a reasonable distance. I also hoped to see some high scores and aimed to set up the course accordingly.

When setting the controls I was surprised at how much vegetation growth had occurred and needed to clear several area of nettles etc to place the controls, however the ground rode hard and fast.

I was conscious of the limited crossing points of the River Ure and the need to tempt riders I into the north east segment of the map which I felt offered fast flat riding but am aware some riders struggled with navigation around CP27.

Also CP7 caused some issues, on collecting this control after the event it was clear that someone had moved the red and white tape approx 10 m south of the control causing some riders to assume the control was missing. If you think your score is not correct please let me know.

In terms of feedback this seemed favourable with many positive reports which are always most welcome. In terms of scores perhaps the area was still on the large side with 3 riders scoring 400 +. Anyway congratulations to all the riders who took part and I hope you enjoyed your ride.

The event was made possible by the contributions of many individuals so at the risk of missing someone out I would like to thank Steve W for advice, Dave R and Shelia P for helping with registration, John D for managing download and the control collectors: Michael C, Dave C, Ray M, Tim and Edwyn E and Simon C. Also thanks to Gill E and Tony BB for helping out with the download, I am aware there were some issues initially but believe these were sorted out on the day*.

*Editors note – final results are still being fixed as it’s a little bit tricky, should be sorted soon
