In August Tim Pearson who built the weekender website for us is going to be cycling from John O'Groats to Lands End for the Wooden Spoon Charity.  Its 874 miles and we are going to be doing it in only 8 days, that’s over 100miles a day, for 8 days!

I’d love to join him, but the fracture to my leg prevents me from doing so! All the weekender team are behind him and wish him the best of look. If you would like to support him please see the link below to donate.

Good luck Mate!

Sorry it's been a while. Just to let you know that for 2010 we have decided to have a year off. What with work and family commitments, 2010 will be a busy year for us all & it just means we couldn't give the weekender 100% and keep up the high standards we feal we have set over the years! We are planning to keep the site updated with news about Steve and riding in Wharncliffe, so please keep checking back.

Just so you know last years weekender raised £15,000, so a big well done to all that helped

So Peaty came up with the idea of building a Dual track for this years Wharncliffe Weekender. We all agreed. A bit of fun, something to play on through the day and maybe run an eliminator if there was any interest?

I have to say the trials course is looking sick! Tim from TRC has put some real thought & effort into this. Peaty & the boys have been trying this out and making it look real hard.

Anyway here is our last batch of pre weekender thank yous (I think)

Jun 27, 2009

Well, that's not exactly true, but it helps keep your bike running smooth which in turn helps you go faster. Anyway, let's leave my strange tangent behind. Thanks to the guys at GT85 for sending me a box full of lube. I can safely say my bike will be running smooth for the next 25 years!

Right, so Saturday evening this year doesn't include bands (sorry) However, there are shed loads going on for your enjoyment!

One such event is the motorcycle trails featuring 2 of the UK's top riders Michael Brown & James Dabill. These boys are seriously talented. Michael Brown was the 2007 junior world champ. If you fancy a look then get on youtube.

So we had a couple of hours tweeking the dual track yesterdays. I've put a few pictures up so you can get an idea. We only rode the track to check the feel of the berms & take a few pictures, hence why all the pictures show us riding without helmets. Remember, ride safe, always wear a helmethelmet.
