    Has anyone seen this weeks edition of ‘Cycling Weekly’ with the article about the legendary Barnsley hard-man Wayne Randle leading a ride to the Youth Hostel at Boggle Hole on the East Coast

    It’s worth a read, if only for his comments about other riders 😆

    I’ve spoken briefly with ‘W R’ in the past (he’s a nice guy) when I’ve seen him in my ‘LBS’ & know riders who’ve raced/trained/chain-ganged with him & been left in tatters by the ordeal.

    I don’t have the copy to hand, but it mentions one of the younger riders ‘big ringing’ it up Chimney Bank & that impresses Randle

    I remember a few names from the article and briefly met Spencer Smith just before his first world triathlon championship win in about 1991/1992-ish.

    Being an ol’ tester, we all knew Cammish, of course. Glad to see that he’s still mixing it up with them all.

    I read the article. Sounds like one tough ride.

    The comments from the other riders were funny, especially Ian Cammish, 9 times BBAR champion, who refused to ride up Rosedale Chimney and rode home on his own!!

    How the hell one of them climbed The Chimney in the big rig I will never know.

    I know the fella who did it in the big ring. He’s not even a cyclist. Well he is but it’s not his main sport.

    ‘Big Ring’ may mean like my 42 ring with my 32 sprocket, about a 35-inch gear. 🙂

    No, he did it on a 53 front ring. He’s a bit special though not a dedicated cyclist

    😯 😯 😯

    Bit like a mate of mine, he wasn’t a competetive cyclist but he was cycling mad, and absolutely mad about riding up the steepest hills in the big ring.

    He was always regaling us of his rides up Sutton Bank in the steepest of gears. 😯 😯
