Had a brilliant weekend at the rally with excellent weather.  Friday night we went to the Quiz met Keith from Newcastle, Ian from Portsmouth and John from London a formidable team and of course we won.

Saturday morning we went to the rock and roll band The Sonics  and of course being of a certain age we knew all the songs they played.  In the afternoon we thought we had better do some cycling so we set off down the Planets Cycle Route to Naburn and then onto Riccall where we saw the winged wheel on the Greyhound pub to get our Cycle Quest clue which was on the planet Saturn.  The cycle route is on an old railway line.

Saturday night we met up again with our new quiz friends and listened to a band who were cyclists.  Sunday morning we met up with John Ramsden who had cycled up from Selby.

Everyday there are organised rides of varying degrees and abilities and anyone can join them.  There are trade stands, talks by different speakers on various subject relating to cycling. There are also different catering outlets open during the day and night.

We took our caravan but there are  plenty of facilities for camping, a small scale “Glastonbury”. Showers and toilets are available.

Hopefully a few more may go next year it really is a brilliant weekend.
