Otley Reliability Ride 2016

A fantastic event which was very well attended for both rides. The weather forecast had promised some strong winds and riders certainly weren’t disappointed! Wharfedale yet again had the uncanny knack of making sure the wind was never fully behind you, the outward journey was energy sapping, straight into it and by the time Kettlewell had been reached the strong gusts meant good bike handling skills were essential.

The event couldn’t have happened without the army of volunteers who helped with signing on, signing off and running the fantastic cafe in the club house (where the donations of goodies were enough to satisfy any hungry finisher). Anyone who made it round today Chapeau! Here’s looking forward to next year, can we order sunshine and calm?
