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.

to those of you who volunteered to work on the 400 km events last weekend.

A special mention for Geoff and Helen Pearce who ministered to riders at Gargrave through the night on The Old 240, and also managed to charm and attract the support of the people of Gragrave, or at least those who were awake.

Working at the event HQ in Mytholmroyd were Chris Boulton, John Greene, Holly Norris, Tom Brabbin, amd Lucy Armour.

Well done everybody for working so well and earning the gratitude and respect of riders taking part.
Martyn Bolt Chapeau to all who helped, I know how much these controls and events are valued. "Charm" Gargrave, now that's an achievement, there was one grump key holder there several years ago, again well done
