Paul Holmes is leading us on a North Yorkshire Dales and Teasdale run.
Meet in the Ripley car park at 9.00am to leave at 9.30am full tanks. The first section of the ride takes you northwards to Kirby Malzeard, Masham, Newton-le-Willows, Scotton and through Catterick Garrison and to our morning coffee stop at The Station Cafe, Richmond, DL10 4LD, just before the Mercury Bridge passing over the River Swale on the edge of Richmond.
After coffee, we head further north to Gilling West before crossing over the A66 and passing through Forcett, Caldwell and Winston heading towards Barnard Castle. From Barnard Castle we will head on the A67 towards Bowes and ride west on the A66. From the A66 we will pick up the signs for Barras which will take us up and on to the moors towards a well earned lunch stop at Tan Hill Inn, DL11 6ED. (Britain’s highest public house at 1,732 feet (528m) above sea level).
After lunch we will head south east back towards Reeth and Leyburn where we can do a fuel stop if required. From Leyburn on a quick route we will head east on the A684 to Bedale. From Bedale we will head towards Leeming Bar and pick up the A6055 running parallel to the A1(M) going south to pick up the A61 which will bring us back towards Ripon and into Ripley for the finish at approximately 3.45 pm.
The route is approximately 122 miles. Please make sure you are tanked up to start or top up at the fuel stop.
