Women’s Cycling in Calderdale May 22, 2015If you are considering getting into cycling or are a regular cyclist, you may have noticed something pretty common about cyclists on the roads – they are mostly men!

Spring into the Dales 115km Audax -12 April 2015 April 14, 2015Chris Crossland has been organising this ride for longer than most of us care to remember and it has invariably been blessed with good weather. In 2015 providence was tempted by holding it on the same day as Paris – Roubaix (the “Hell of the North”), and while northern France luxuriated in benign weather, northern […]

Well done everyone, especially the first-timers. Thanks for the company. Sorry the weather I ordered arrived a day early. Still, the advantage of being in the steady group was that we had sunshine all the way back from Whalley.
Darren-Olimpia Walker Sunshine and perfect timing for Dunsop Bridge refreshments! Well done. Had a great time. Thanks Dave.

Jonathan Higson Well done everyone.

Peter Howells Perfect timing for the Clapham soup stop too. First time for me and twice the mileage I've ever done before on a bike - a real confidence builder. Thanks to Dave and everyone else involved in making this event happen.

The next Calderdale Cyclequest is coming soon. For new members (and old ones who haven't done one yet!) who are not sure what it is, it is a navigation event where you have to find a series of checkpoints/controls which are marked on a map. Each control has a question to answer to prove you have been there. You use you map reading ability (or inability) to find as many controls within 2 hours, on your bicycle. Any bike is suitable,as all the controls are on roads. It's about 20 miles. The person who gets the most checkpoints, in the shortest time is the best Cycle Quester. Rules of the road all apply, it is not a race but a navigational challenge.
Where is it? from the Alma Pub Cottonstones.
When is it? 4th July 2015, registration from 09:30 with staggered starts from 10:00. Prize giving in the pub afterwards
Normal pub food available from 12:00.
Cost? A princely £2.00
To reserve a map post here, send me a personal message or email calderdalecyclequest@yahoo.co.uk.
Cheers, Graham Lloyd
Eddie Energy Seen by 52! There must be some of you wanting to have a go?
