X-Challenge out in the English Yorkshire Dales

Took the XChallenge out in the YORKSHIRE DALES NATIONAL PARK

Started off from Masham and ended up @ Hawes





Over to Leyburn







Then West Witton







Onto the Roman Road @ Bainbridge to Cam Fell















Cam Fell













New bike went very well - got enough power and well suspended and managed not to fall off once

On the stony tracks it'll manage up to 50mph..............but as I was alone, I wasn't pushing it too far

Yes, but my XChallenge isn't seeing any riding time this time of year - all snowed in up here. I'm glad somebody's out enjoying their XCh!

Thanks for the report, and congratulations on your new bike! Looks like some fun places to ride, and perfect for the XCh.

Great pictures, thanks!

Quite a contrast to down here where the trails tend to be like a green tunnels

I think Mr. Cob posted a ride with another rider who had an Xchallenge. Nonetheless, great bike and nice pics. Thanks for sharing.

Nice report, and excellent pics of that beautiful area!!

By the way, I think they need to issue bigger license plates over there; I can barely see yours...
