The 25th Wensleydale Wedge took place on Sunday 15th November 2015. The forecast severe weather and flooded roads meant that there was a high number of non-starters. The hardy souls who had made it to Askrigg ventured out into gusting wind and driving rain. Due to flooding the event was diverted up the road from Bainbridge to Stalling Busk; thereafter it was the familiar route. It wasn't cold, the rain stopped and there was even some sunshine. The forecast late afternoon severe weather never arrived although it started to rain again as the last few finishers and the sweepers completed the route.

It is unfortunate that at least one of the front-runners failed to close and secure gates through the farmland after Castle Bolton - as a result flocks of sheep have become mixed up to the understandable annoyance of the farmer. This inconsiderate action could well mean we will be unable to get permission to use this route on future events.

Results will be posted on the Nidderdale Group webpage as soon as processed.

The A1 will shut on Saturday 14 November at 8pm and will remain closed until 6am on Monday November 16 in both directions between Junction 51 Leeming Bar and Scotch Corner so those of us from the North will have to drive through Richmond rather than Catterick Garrison on Sunday morning.
