This Months ride will be a scenic route through the Yorkshire Dales to Tan Hill and then back through North Yorkshire and will be about 135 miles.
The ride will start at 9.30 am from the Dragon Road Lorry Park in Harrogate (Arrive 9.15 am). From there we head towards Pateley Bridge for a breakfast stop at the Old School Tearoom Café at Hebden (null (theoldschooltearoom.com)).
From there we head through Grassington and over the top of Malham to Langcliffe and then through Horton in Ribblesdale towards Hawes. We continue through Buttertubs Pass to Tan Hill. We bypass the Tan Hill Pub (expensive and restricted menu) and after a short distance stop at the Charles Bathurst Inn for Lunch (Welcome to The CB Inn | Homepage).
After lunch we head towards Richmond with a detour over the tank ranges to come back through Layburn (Fuel stop at 108 miles, there are public toilets in Leyburn if anyone wants a comfort break whilst others fuel up.), Masham, Ripon and back to Ripley castle for an ice cream.
Current guidelines are that 30 can meet outdoors and 6 from any household indoors. If you wish to attend the ride can you please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) so I can plan and advise our stop destinations of numbers. Both locations have outdoor seating and are happy to host people indoors as long as we keep to the rule of 6.
