Bike packing weekend July 2016

Karl, Andy and myself drove to Horton in Ribblesdale on Sat morning, arriving around 10.30 ish. This is where the 3 peaks walks start from. A visit to the cafe with the famous "clocking in" clock was a must and a brew / bacon buttie followed. A leisurely start up a Tarmac farm rd took us onto the tops where good views were had. We went up onto the pennine bridleway / Dales way which is good firm hardpack. The route then took us down a rocky technical path which was tricky on the mtb and very… Continue

Hi John Just a few information bites about Black Sail Youth Hostel Weekend September 22/23 2017.

Black Sail - Brilliant Location at the Head of Ennerdale. People staying will need to walk or mountain bike in.

16 beds are available. Price for weekend £76.50. This includes Breakfast on Saturday/ Sunday. And Evening Meal on Friday/Saturday. It's pricey compared to other locations - but there are very few locations like this! In order to reserve a place you need to pay a deposit of £50.00. Sorry about the size of this - but if we don't pay up soon - we loose the chance of staying there.  Any questions Andy 07504926007.

Hi John, it was great to meet you too, I look forward to geting involved as you have got loads of events going on.

See you soon

Yannis

Helping the Bury Jubilee Outdoor Pursuits Centre

Hi - does anyone feel able to respond to the appeal below?

Dave Dickson and I have been involved for a long time but I have now left the area and Dave is probably reaching his last fifty years of useful service (sorry to be so blunt, Dave).

Putting Something Back
