It’s HAB monthly meeting time come around again. Summer is marching on so hopefully you can make the Monday Ride-In to Bilton Cricket Club and if not, you won’t be left out as Chief Observer, Bob Hill is giving a presentation and advice on overtaking.
Meeting for the Ride-In at Otley Garden Centre, Pool Road, LS21 1DY, just after the football ground on the left riding into town. 6.00pm for a prompt 6.15pm set off after a pre-ride briefing. This one is “all the right roads, not necessarily in the right order” type of rides!
From the garden centre into Otley, with a right turn across the river on Bridge Street, heading out of Otley on Weston Lane towards Askwith, Denton, Middleton and right, up Hardings Lane, over Beamsley Hill towards Bolton Abbey. Up past the Abbey and a right turn for Barden and onto the B6265 towards Greenhow. A right turn after Stump Cross Caverns past Thruscross Reservoir to Blubberhouses. Left on to the A59 all the way to Harrogate and Bilton Cricket Club. Follow the leader so no need to store that information, but it gives you an idea of the route. I’ve not recced the route, but I am familiar with the roads. Please excuse any hesitation at junctions, so avoid bunching up. We will of course use the turn marking system, so no one should get lost (if you are new to HAB you can read Ride-Out guidelines on our website and of course IAM RoadSmart website too).
Only 40 Miles and about 80 minutes. Getting to BCC around 7.30pm. Yours truly leading the ride.
Buffet food of course is available as usual, after Bob’s talk.
Looking forward to seeing as many as can make the Ride-In, and the Meeting at the Cricket Club.
