Saturday’s Ride

It was decided upon route 264 for our ride today. After much chat on text many said no due to weather forecast. Only myself and Chris decided on starting meeting on route at Black Swan in Burn Bridge. Ride out to Weardly bank was damp but ok to ride on with promise of weather improving at Eccup reservoir the rain got heavier and wetter, we continued to East Keswick where it was decided to shorten the ride and head back down Jewit Lane and return via Kirby and Sicklinghall, idea of a cafe stop in Harrogate. Cafe stop at Prologue on Cold Bath
Road hot chocolate was the order of the day. 37 miles in total on ride only 5/6 miles short of the advertised ride. Grant

Today’s Ride

A wet morning in prospect saw only four intrepid riders plus a new member, Tim, at the Showground. The announcements being brief, Vince, James, two Tim’s and Mike set off on the short ride to Wetherby via Kirkby Overblow and Sicklinghall. Refreshments at Morrisons led to management comments about the pools of water gathering under our table, so we headed off again into the rain. The sky cleared as we reached the Showground and strangely it seemed we had all enjoyed the ride. 24 miles. Mike W
