Sunday 25th September, the annual Three Peaks Cyclo-X race, a particularly masochistic and challenging way of 'doing' the Dales' hills. When not able to ride, you carry your bike up & down near-vertical slopes!
John & Ann, who we met as guests last year brought their family with them this year. Having set them up with a hearty breakfast, Ann Katie & Chris drove off to the first rendezvous, while John cycled off to the start at Helwith Bridge ("just to get warmed up").
We turned the rooms round in time to take Jack up to Cod Bank, where the cyclists descend from Ingleborough. As you can see, it's a good spot for thrills & spills, grim determination, and, in John's case (bottom photo), apparently calm confidence.
Looking forward to next year!
