Meet Ripley car park 9.15 for 9.30am start.
The route this month is fairly straightforward in keeping with the time of year: From Ripley, head west to Pateley Bridge and Grassington then B6160 up Wharfedale with a coffee stop at Kilnsey Park. Continue north to Aysgarth then sharp right, over the River Ure and on to Askrigg for lunch at the Crown Inn.
Return journey from Askrigg via back roads to Leyburn then A684 towards Bedale but turning Right to take back roads through Masham, Grewlethorpe, Kirkby Malzeard and back to Ripley.
Total distance Ripley to Ripley is about 90 miles.
Weather forecast at the moment looks reasonable: cold but dry with a little sunshine.
Looking forward to seeing you next week.
