Meeting at Ripley Castle Café from 9.45am for a pre-start coffee/breakfast. Don’t forget to pay for parking from the machine – refundable at the café.
Setting of north to Kirkby Malzeard, Grewelthorpe and through Masham to go over the River Ure before turning left up towards Bedale. After Bedale, we cross the A1M to Morton-on-Swale, taking a left on minor roads to avoid Northallerton town centre and towards Yafforth. Back roads now up to Great Smeaton and Low Worsall before arriving at Yarm High Street.
Lunch Stop: Yarm – wherever takes our fancy on the day. Parking wise, again we need to get a ticket from the machine but this gives you a couple of hours free.
After lunch, we head east on mainly minor roads towards Stokesley before picking up the B1257 to Helmsley. From Helmsley we continue on the B1257, turning left to Ampleforth following minor roads, eventually crossing the A19 and on to Helperby, Thornton Bridge and Boroughbridge, where the Ride finishes in Morrisons car park.
Length: approx 120ml.
Leader: David Haywood with TEC to be decided on the day.
Hope to see you Wednesday morning!
