Thank you & good luck Caitlin from everyone at EBCC & KSBC


Caitlin was just 6 when she joined EBCC at our kids Saturday bike club. Many of our longer serving volunteers have watched her grow and prosper into a lovely young lady. Caitlin joined our team of volunteers as a young volunteer, she later did the level 1 British cycling coaching award and started coaching the young children herself. We all really appreciate the time, help and commitment that you have given to EBCC & KSBC. Good luck at university!

Youth Hostel Trip 31Oct to 2 Nov

Jim and Brenda are again organising the yearly Autumn Youth Hostel trip to Osmotherley in North Yorkshire. This hostel is an independant hostel but still under the "YHA" organisation.
It is about 65 miles from Bradford, some members cycle all the way via Shipley, Otley, Pool, Knaresborough,(cafe stop), Boroughbridge (loo stop), Thirsk (late lunch stop) to Osmotherley. Some members join part way, leaving their car en route.
31 October -We set off on Friday morning, cycle there, steadily over the day to arrive at tea time.
1 November - Saturday there is a ride from the Hostel along the lanes to Great Ayton and Stokesley, usually about 20 to 30 miles depending on weather etc.
2 November - Sunday  - after a hearty breakfast at the Hostel, we set off back (on a slightly different route) to Boroughbridge and beyond (to home).

Anyone is welcome to come along, singles, couples, families. Ride as much as you like - walk, swim, shop on the Saturday if you like. Bring the car or not, let someone with a car bring your luggage! Be a dedicated tourer and dig out some panniers. You can pay for breakfast and/or evening meal or you can self cater.
Experienced teenage riders? why not plan a trip away and meet us up there!
Interested? please contact Jim Littlefair to book and for more details. 01274 499182
