Meeting at Dragon Road Lorry park in Harrogate next to ASDA (HG1 5DE) with fuel available there. Arrive from 9.00am with a prompt getaway planned for 9.30am after a ride briefing.
Join Richard Stembrowicz for a ride around the Dales. Riding on familiar roads taking us west on the A59, turning north on the B6265 up through Cracoe, Threshfield and left onto the B6160 towards Kettlewell. Before we get to Kettlewell a stop at Kinsey Park Cafe (BD23 5PS) for a morning break. Get your breakfast or just a coffee.
Setting off again heading north again towards Kettlewell, Buckden and West Burton, making a couple of left turns and across the A684 turning right, passing Aysgarth Falls and on towards Carperby. Carrying along this minor road to Newbiggin and on to Reeth for lunch at The King’s Arms for a light bite or Sunday roast. For parking you will need to fit in somewhere, but we are planning an early lunch at 12.30 so it should be quieter at that time.
After lunch, setting off southwards across Grinton Moor going over the army ranges towards Leyburn. Then its the A6108 all the way back to Ripon, left at the Clock Tower, joining the bypass southwards towards Harrogate on the A61 and finishing our ride at Ripley (HG3 3AX).
Approximately 100 miles so we shouldn’t need a fuel stop.
Ride Leader Richard, TEC Barry.
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday.
