RSF - The Off Road Cycling Club

The Adventure Starts Here

1998 May-June Vol 43 No.3

The sky was heavy as our intepid pair left the Knavesmire to pass through York City centre and on to the barracks at Strenshall (OS 105 GR 628593). Here we met Simon Ward, a university colleague of mine and a regular Audax rider. My other companion was Nigel Hall, who had been a student at York in the ’60s and was partly responsible for setting up the university cycling club. We were all keen to get onto some real rough-stuff, the first of which followed within a couple of miles.The unmade road slowed the others, on tourers, more than myself, but my fat tyres were harder work on the tarmac.
