Well the day of the ride came, and forecast was “spot on“, Cold, Wet, Foggy and Windy DOH.

We had it all wind, rain, sleet and thick fog. GIVE YOURSELVES A HUGE PAT ON THE BACK.
Despite the terrible weather conditions Team Deerness still tackled this challenging route. We started with a steady ride up Deerness Valley climbing up Cornsay Colliery bank, and descending Ragpath through heavy rain along Longedge Lane to Rowley where it got really interesting. By the time we got to Parkhead we were struggling to see the road ahead of us pushing through thick fog and side winds we dropped into Stanhope.

From this point we climbed again up to Bollihope Common via Unthank Bank with hair pin bends. By this point the team decided to cut the route short due to safety issues, returning via Hill End, Frosterly and Wolsingham; where we re-joined the route to take us back to Broompark.

HUGE Thanks, a big thumbs up and large amount of “creds” to those who turned out for Team Deerness Charity Ride for MNDa.

Also would like to thanks the HELPERS and supporters, you did great 🙂 FINE weather BOOKED for next time.

AND an even bigger THUMBS up to those two riders who did the FULL route despite the conditions. Very Well DONE TO Andy Reeves and Jim McLoughlin

A huge thanks to all those that DONATED and the Team who raised money and are still raising money via the Sponsor Forms. Money still coming in.
