    DCLane Found in the Yorkshire hills ...

    My son rode this last year - this year it was the day after Otley so he chose not to ride it.

    Just up-hill for 5 levels.
  2. I think some of the columns, walls, barriers and road paint could at a potentially greater speed with majority of weight on the front wheel on down ramps could be a recipe for disaster on a downhill. I'd love to try it up hill though :okay:
  3. Essentially my thoughts, it was more of a hope that they don't

    Plus any oil & diesel, that the organisers may miss on their walk-through the course

    After Velo Birmingham this year, the group of us had a race to the top of the multistory to see who would get the front seat of the car for the journey back. We are all in our 40s :smile:

  5. I rode a Raleigh 20 to the top of our parking deck at work to catch a hit-and-run driver the fellows in the office saw on camera.

    That does look a lot of fun!

    There are a few shared-use pedestrian/cyclist road bridges that I have ridden over which have nice spiral access ramps. If there aren't pedestrians around at the time I usually sprint up them.

    As a runner, @Richard A Thackeray, perhaps you'd prefer this type of event ...?

    "Most winny" ... xx(
  8. More of an ex-runner, at the moment
    Had little niggling knee problems for a year or so
    Only affected me when running; walk/climb stairs/ride bike = no problems
    I also need to lose the 2 Stones that I've put on too:blush::blush:

    It's your knees asking you: "Why do you keep running around when you own a perfectly good bicycle?"

    Anyone else slightly disappointed the thread isn't about this?

    Well, there's a coincidence... My sister is here and was just complaining about how painful her knees are since a 2 stone weight gain, and I told her that mine used to hurt until I lost weight!

    The race in the multi storey reminds me of doing my cycling proficiency in the Merrion Centre car park, a loooooong time ago.
