Pateley Bridge Sign


Our 22nd annual rally saw us move to a new venue - the Nidderdale Show Ground in Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire.  The showground is located by the River Nidd and is just a few steps away from the local eateries and hostelries that were well patronised over the weekend! 

 

Menwith Hill


Our Friday road run saw us heading through Summer Bridge and (punctures permitting) past the ‘Golf Balls’ of RAF Menwith Hill.  We continued on to Otley and stopped shortly afterwards for lunch.
 

Brimham Rocks

 

Our route proceeded through Huby and on to Wetherby where we made a stop for provisions before returning to Pateley Bridge via Boroughbridge, Bishop Monkton and Markington passing by the impressive Brimham Rocks.

Pateley Bridge Main Street


Friday evening was spent by barbecues on site or meandering up Pateley Bridge Main Street partaking of the local fayre.

 


 

Embsay Station
Saturdays run was to Skipton passing the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway.  It was market day in Skipton; this gave us the opportunity to stock up on a few bargains before returning via Appletreewick to Pateley Bridge.

 

 

New Club Gazebo


Our newly acquired gazebo came into its own on Saturday evening providing plenty of room to escape from the chill.  Evening entertainment was the traditional quiz and raffle.

 

 

Prizes were awarded to those who had taken part in the road runs.

DJ Neill Foster

 


The evening continued long into the evening (morning?) thanks to the DJ skills of Neill Foster.

 

 

Sunday saw the hottest day of the year (31°C/88°F) but it was sadly time to leave.

 

Thanks to Ray Glendinning our Event Co-ordinator for all his organisational skills in securing a delightful new venue and planning some challenging runs.

We’re already looking forward to 2012!

Nigel
