Penistone Hill MTB Session

This Saturday is the turn of the MTB session on the 4 week rota! This Saturday the location for the session is Penistone Hill @ Haworth. For those of you that took part in the B.S.C.A MTB races this is the same location. Location and Postcode in the photos below. Just follow the access road up to the carpark. We may be a little short on coaches so dependant on rider numbers this may be a ride rather than a coached session. Please arrive in good time for a 1:30pm start with the session running to 3:30pm. The forecast is dry but it will be breezy and cold. Please make sure you dress according to the conditions. (As the name suggests we are on top of a hill). Also bring a drink and snack. See you Saturday! Penistone Hill Country Park Haworth, Keighley BD22
