Ah, thank you for that. Please pass on my regards to those of the Cleveland group who remember me, Hutch especially. He still owes me a pint!

Ah, the dear departed Crosses, possibly the friendliest event there has ever been, or likely to be. Pencilled in many diaries from one year to the next. Who can forget Guy Collinson whipping everyone out of bed for a 4AM breakfast in the fishermen's cafe on Whitby quayside? Happy days.

Anyway, it's 25 years since we were in our glory days, so Les stephenson & I decided to make a return trip to Goathland. As a sop to our advancing years we tootled round on mountain bikes, and not surprisingly took more than 25% longer than we used to be able to do it on foot.

Whilst we were pootling around the Village Hall the caretaker told us that he'd been asked if the hall was available for use when a walk over a 55 mile route was being put on. Seems like this is to be semi or even un official. As the Hall was booked he couldn't help, so has no details of it.

Does anyone on here know what is planned? Is it another bash at the full Crosses route? Is it "official", or just a bunch of enthusiasts doing what we did, and re-awakening past memories?

For those who,are interested Green Swang to Postgate is still a tiresome mess!!!
