Rarnd Tarn 2015
WCG Hill Climb 2016
Last Sunday saw the running of Birdwell Wheeler’s “Rarnd Tarn” Audax ride which as far as possible follows the old borough boundaries.


As has been the case in the last three years, the club used the event to publicise and raise money for charity, this year Barnsley Hospice being the chosen organisation.


On a cold but dry morning 32 riders ,15 Birdwell members and 17 visitors, assembled at 9am at Birdwell Community Centre ready to tackle the 125km ride.

The ride was not a timed event but Wheelers Trevor Mayne ,Ben Harvey, Dan Taylor and Geared Up Cycles Tom Booth were first home in a very respectable 5 hours.


Riders afterwards welcomed the refreshments provided by organiser Bob Waterhouse.


So far with money still coming in the club has raised £240 for the Hospice. Donations can be made using the following link.   https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/birdwellwheelerscharityride2015
