Apologies for the short notice. The HAB Ride-out planned for the usual third Sunday of the month (17th June), as it falls on Fathers Day and so that it is not too close to the Wednesday ride-out of this week, has been postponed until the following Sunday 24th.
Sorry to disappoint anyone who can’t make the 24th.
West Yorks and Peaks Sunday 24th June.
Ride leader Barry Ring
With lots of unfamiliar roads, the planned ride is straight down the old A1 from Wetherby, cross country from Pontefract, then south into Derbyshire and along Snake Pass, back up to Glossop, up Holme Moss, through Holmfirth and stopping at The West Yorkshire Sculpture Park for afternoon tea. The ride can end there, but if anyone wants to follow back to Wetherby Moto services I will happily lead the way.
Morning stop is The Fox & Hounds at Newmillerdam WF2 6QQ.
Lunch stop is at The Strines Inn, Bradfield Dale S6 6JE.
Time permitting, the plan is to finish at The Yorkshire Sculpture Park WF4 4JX, however I will lead the final leg up the M1 and do a final stop at Wetherby Moto services on the A1.
It’s a decent ride, the mileage is about 161, including the optional last leg to the Wetherby services. There are plenty of opportunities for fuel top-ups, please let the ride leader know.
Looking forward to seeing as many as possible at the usual meeting point, Sunday 24th June, Dragon Road lorry park next to Asda from 9.00 am for 9.30 am set-off with a full fuel tank.
