Open5 Series 2008
Dalby Forest, North York Moors – 27th January, 2008
For the first event of 2008 we’re heading to the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors and Dalby Forest.
With over 40 miles of marked bike trails, including some amazing singletrack, Dalby Forest is the premier mountain bike venue in the North East of England. The trails are fast, technical, built less than a year ago and well maintained. There’s two cafes, a visitor centre, a bike shop and a bike wash!
Runners will also not be disappointed with some amazing views to be taken in from the surrounding countryside. We are pretty confident you will enjoy this one.
Pateley Bridge, Yorkshire Dales – 9th March, 2008
The second event of the year will be at Pateley Bridge in Nidderdale, which was the market town on the River Nidd where competitors passed through en-route to the paddling at the Washburn in the 2006 Open 24.
For those with a sweet tooth you’ll find the Oldest Sweet Shop in England or how about a pudding from the Old Bakehouse in the High Street in Pateley Bridge. Don’t worry there’ll be plenty of opportunity to burn off the calories while navigating round the complex network of paths and bridleways in the area.
Broughton in Furness, Lake District – 18th May, 2008
We are back here in Broughton in Furness for the first event of the 2008 Endurance series. To accommodate all of you we have moved to Victory Hall, parking is tricky and the plan is to use the wide and long Foxfield Road that leaves the village by the south.
It is very likely that the start/finish will be a 30min cycle from registration so best pack an extra banana to get you back after giving you all over 5 hours. Previous competitors will vouch for the excellent riding and running in the area so expect some surprises – this event won’t be short of them.
