Wet and Wild Yorkshire Moors

We tried waiting for the rain to stop before heading out to mark the mountain bike route for tomorrow but unfortunately it didn't so we had no choice but to go out and get wet. It ended up taking me and Keith about 5 hours of riding in the rain to mark out half of the course each. The rain isn't too bad once you get over initially getting wet and it's not really that muddy but the head wind across the moors made it really tough.

The forecast is slightly better for tomorrow but I suggest you pack your waterproofs or stop by our Gore Bike Wear demo tent if you're planning to ride.

GPX routes should now be available to download.

Thanks for a great day,we rode the 30 instead of the fun route and found more hills than expected.

You must be doing something right as my son now wants to up the route length when we see you next in the Lakes.

Thanks Again
