27/3/13 - Exciting news just in about a new ride for Summer 2013 (more information to be released once we have a confirmed date!)

27/3/13 Entries are now being taken for the Wykeham ride - visit the ride page for more details.

27/3/13  Guisborough Ride - Despite freezing cold 25mph winds, 0 degrees C and some very slippy frozen ground, a number of riders wrapped up warmed and completed the Guisborough Ride on Sunday 24t March. A big well done to everyone who completed - it certain was 'endurance' riding at its best.

Esrick Park - A cold but fine start to the season at Escrick Park saw the North & East Yorkshire Group kick of the start of the 2013 season in fine style with a great turn out of over 60 rides enjoying the good going around Escrick estate and bridleways. A big thank you to all the hard work of ride organiser Jayne Young and Julie Dunn along with their band of merry helpers. Photographs were taken by West End Photography and proofs will be delivered through the post in the next couple of weeks.

Awards night & AGM - Slightly late following bad weather in December halting all good plans, the evening marked the end of a good 2012 season for most going home with a selection of rosettes and prizes. The night was a great opportunity to catch up with people and make plans for 2013! Photographs were kindly taken by Chris Cole at West End Photography and can be found online at
