Mountain Bike Meet Sunday 28th Feb 2016

On a fantastic morning 5 Castle bikers competed with the full face helmeted down hill crazed mountain bikers for car parking space at Wharncliffe and needless to say all Castle cars were in the car park. A lovely ride through Wharncliffe onto the Trans Pennine Trail ensued with only minor hiccups of lost GPSs and pushing of bikes over the very muddy terrain of the link bridleway to the snow road running parallel to the Woodhead. After a few -only minor – navigation errors we ended up very hungry at the Langsett Café. There meals eventually appeared although the fearsomeness of Leon meant that one employee not knowing the whereabouts of tomato ketcup flatly refused to ask anyone. Luckily another member of the group was offered a new bottle of tomato ketcup before the situation got too desperate. After a sunny afternoon cycling 33.5 miles we arrived back at Wharncliffe with a new fully fledged Castle mountain biker – welcome Marion! Thanks to all for a lovely day.
