Report of the weekend by Steve Griffith
The very comfortable Youth Hostel at Helmsley was our location this year. Attendance was down on last year, nevertheless an enjoyable weekend in the South of the North York Moors, one of those areas with superb riding in all directions.
The committee meeting took place Saturday pm with most present contributing. It was decided to award the merit shield to Fred and Pat Lloyd for a very long period of service to the Fellowship. There was also a discussion about branding of the club with a suggestion that we should use our initials followed by an explanation of what we do, eg RSF (the off road cycling club). The committee will consider this further. As always thanks to Heather Evans for taking the minutes.
The ride on Saturday lead by Neville and Jane took us Sutton Bank by way of quite roads, and a some what muddy track. We were blessed with sunny weather, which enhanced the view from Sutton Bank and ride back to Rievaulx Abbey via a very enjoyable white road. Sunday’s ride took us east towards Hovingham via two wonderful riverbank tracks.
