I'm doing this at the weekend though not the full 100 5 dales. more like the 4 dale 80 or the reeth bailout 50.

anyhoo, anyone know Richmond NY well? wheres easiest to park?



  • Parking is available at the HQ on a first come first served basis. It's a fair sized car park so you should get parked if not one of the volunteers will be able to point you in the direction of the nearest one.

    done this at the weekend. though the 80 miles 4 dale version.
    was excellent ride, well organsized, good route and the weather was ace.
    Would recommend to folk for next year.

    Sausage rolls and pasties on the way round then chilli at the end, think what I ate would have cost £15 for me to buy at greggs and the like :o)
    Would like a gold on the 80 next year, so might have to have less pastry on the way round :o)

    In my opinion only it's not about the time, I ride because I love cycling and being able to c the views on the way round
