Last Saturday five members of Birdwell Wheelers completed the Hopey New Year Audax.
Dave Hudson, Rob Parkes, Marc Peasegood, Bob Waterhouse and John Woodhouse covered a circular 65 mile loop through the Peak villages of Bradwell, Hathersage, Grindleford, Bakewell, Brassington, Ashbourne, Bottomhouse, Warslow, Longnor, Tideswell and back to Bradwell.
In bitterly cold but dry weather the quintet climbed over 6000 feet and all completed the ride within the allotted time.
The following equally cold day saw five riders Phil Adams, Rodger Holmes, Chris Jenkins, Tony Lodge and Paul Mynett out on the 45 mile Sunday club run to Askern.
This week the club’s Sunday run sets off at 9am from Brewers Fayre roundabout, Wombwell and heads to Retford on a flat 65 mile ride. Visitors are welcome on the ride.
