After the success of the previous club trips t'up North to the Dales we had a good number of members asking when we were going again. The plan wasnt to head back to the Dales until early 2013 but due to the interst we decided to hold yet another trip up to the Dales Centre in October.
After the success of our Club Trip to Snowdon last year we had been swamped with interest from lots of riders in the Club asking about holding again, so it was decided that we had to hold the trip again, but this time open it up for a longer weekend of riding.
Afan Ride Report Day One
The day commenced with an early start from the 'Shire. The bikes were loaded and the weather looked promising. However on leaving the M4 for Afan forest the first but not to be the last raindrop fell.
For our 2011 Summer Club trip we decided to head to the Yorkshire Dales to take in some very different trails from that offered in the Chiltern Hills. Our choice of venue was the Dales Bike Centre, in Fremington near Richmond in North Yorkshire. The Dales Centre is nicely advertised as the “Centre of trails, not a trail centre” which I thought was a really nice touch.
