Having run a wealth of MTB related courses from the CTC Centre of Excellence, the Dalby Bike Barn team were pleased with the response to their first road event in the picturesque Yorkshire forest.
Over 40 riders aged from eight to 58 took part in the Housedale hill climb event last weekend 16 November 2013. On the day, the weather was clear and cool with thankfully no need for waterproofs or de-icer, so it helped things run really well. Riders were set off in two-minute intervals, which is a bit different to the usual 1 minute gap. The organisers thought for the first timers, it would be nice not to get caught on the way up!
