Well, the first ride out this year was on Wednesday and although I couldn’t make it, judging by the positive messages on our Facebook page, it went very well.
Thanks to David Haywood for another cracker.
This January’s Sunday ride out is on the 20th and Chris Armstrong has offered to lead it, ably assisted by Mike Holroyde.
Meet at the Harrogate lorry park near Asda from 09.00 for a prompt 09.30 start. We head to How Stean Gorge Cafe for morning coffee (HG3 5SY) via Ripley and Summerbridge and then over the top passing Leighton reservoir to Masham. After Masham we ride to Askrigg via East Witton and Leyburn for lunch at the Crown Inn (DL8 3HQ).
Following lunch we head towards Aysgarth and over to Buckden and Kettlewell finishing at Stump Cross Caverns (HG3 5JL).
Distance to lunch is 56m plus 30m to Stump Cross caverns, total 86m. In the event of a severe weather forecast members will be advised on Friday 18th January that the ride is cancelled. We have had excellent weather so far this winter so let’s hope it will be kind to us once again.
Nice low mileage winter ride from Chris with plenty of time left to wash the bike when you get home!
See you there.
