A great day out for over 600 Cyclists at the Wolds Sportive this year.
Over 600 cyclists from near and far enjoyed an excellent day out in the Wolds on Sunday 22nd April. with a new Centurion route added to give a tougher challenge to the keen cyclists, this day out had something for everyone.
Wonderful to see more ladies riding.
There was a welcome bottle of Great Newsome Maille Jeune beer at the end of the ride along with a commemorative tee shirt. Pie and peas rounded the day off nicely, congratulations to everyone who took part and to Phil Haskins and his team of smiling volunteers.

May Sunday girls plus Tim cycle adventure York 2 Paris
May saw a group of 12 lady cyclists plus Tim, set off in glorious sunshine from the front of York Minster on our first of this year's cycle holidays.
The weather was perfect for cycling, a little chilly starting off in the mornings, but brilliant clear blue skies and very pleasant cycling during the day.
The whole group gelled well, and new friendships formed as we pedalled our way into Paris on the last day, making some great memories of the trip.
Champagne was opened and enjoyed under the Eiffel Tower before riding back to the hotel where we enjoyed a delicious meal. Journeyed home the next day via Eurostar, resting our tired legs.
Mrs B's home made cakes were enjoyed by all.
Check out facebook york2paris for lots of photos of the trip.
Next cycle holiday goes this coming Tuesday 5th June with another group of keen cyclists.
Its been a busy time for myself and Phil Haskins, making final preparations for our first York2Paris trip in May.
We had a meeting this week with the ladies who are going on our first trip, discussed the route, and reassured them that it will be fun!
There are still places available on the June trip starting on the 26th of June and finishing on the 1st of July.
Please check out www.york2paris.co.uk.
We have a facebook page too with video clips from last year's trips.
Looking forward to the Wolds sportive, coming up on Sunday 22nd April, hoping for a bright sunny morning, as the cyclists enjoy four great routes over our beautiful Wolds countryside.
Phil has been busy sorting out last minute details so that the day is enjoyable and hassle free.
Finally a mention for our new team sports lab, which took part in Adam Hardy's time trial 24th April from Skidby, an enjoyable event and especially good to see new entrants who were just having a go for the fun of it.
I am the company founder and a very keen cyclist who has enjoyed cycling since the first day I sat on my first bike. What I love about cycling is the freedom and chance to go places under your own steam. Plus, it keeps you fit and helps to save money on fuel too!
