This week we could aim to get to Ripon Spa Gardens for 11:00 ish.

All in the ride would be something around 30 miles or so.

Hope to see you there!

Here is the Fast group ride for Sunday, its 55 miles out to Tadcaster and back via Whixley hopefully with the wind behind on the way back. Not as lumpy as last week, and we should be able to get back for c.1pm even if we want a brief stop. Cheers



Club Rides – Sunday 4th November

RIDES START AT 9:30am

Team Easy
As its coming up to Bonfire Night I was thinking of doing a trip to York in view of the subtle link with Guy Fawkes. Probably a stop at the NT cafe at Beningbrough as we havent been to that cafe yet (free tea or coffee if you buy a cake for anyone who has cycled there!).

All in, with a visit to York, and return via Tockwith etc thats going to be just short of 50 flat miles – which would mean we would be late getting back

If the weather is rubbish then we can do something much shorter – possibly no cafe stop if its that bad.

The start time is now 9:30 – which helps!

See you there!

Better late than never. Bryan’s away in Cumbria so I’m afraid it’s just me tomorrow. Not sure about the weather but how’s about Fewston Heritage Centre unless the weather is bad in which case something shorter, maybe Benningborough. Led by Richard

Hello Fast Group. For this Sunday’s ride I suggest a 48 miler up Wharfedale to Askwith, up and over the Moor to Fewston and back via Brackenthwaite and Panal. Maybe a brew at Washburn Heritage Centre Fewston if time permits. Here is the route: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/21419474.
Any takers?

Dont forget the clocks change this weekend. Starttime is still 9:00 until next week.

Dash to Dishforth

I thought this week we could try the Dash to Dishforth – (or DishDash for short). This would be a route out through Bishop Monkton, Littlethorpe and Ripon – with a cafe stop at Olivers or Booths. Then coming back towards Dishforth and the Airfield, Marton le Moor and Boroughbridge. There’s a few new roads in this one so anything could happen.

If all goes well and we dont get lost it should be about 30 miles – and pretty flat.

See you there!

OK – here’s a mostly east-west to avoid the wind ~50miler out to Crayke way, with some uphill bits before a stop at Easingwold for a brew – Led by Mark

Steady ride for Sunday. I did wonder about Norwood Edge but if we don’t feel up to that how about Coxwold.?

Hello Medium Group. What about Masham on Sunday? Here is a 57 mile route with a hilly first bit, brew at Masham at 30 miles and a gentler second bit. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/21270813. Any takers?

Team Easy – Away Weekend – Berwick

This coming Sunday and Monday is the second away weekend of the year – this time we are going to Berwick and coming down the coast following the Coasts & Castles Sustrans route with an overnight in Alnwick before continuing on through Druridge Bay into Newcastle.

For those taking the various trains from York to Berwick at around 9:00, we can meet up at Filmore & Union in York Station near where the Knaresborough train gets in. Some are driving to Newcastle and catching the train from there – in which case we will meet you at Berwick station. For info we are booked on the 9:00 train from York which should get in to Berwick at about 11:06.

For those not doing the 2 day ride – just meet up at the car park as normal and choose a ride and a leader on the day.

See you there!

This week we could do a trip to Askham Richard with the usual cafe stop at the prison. Then coming back towards Wetherby on a slightly different route to normal on some back roads. Should be around the 30 miles mark – and pretty flat. Hopefully miss the rain.

See you there!

Hello Medium Group. Thinking about a 100 miler flat route widely circling Knaresborough so many options for wimping out if too much for some next Sunday 29th July. 08:00 start from Knaresborough. If enough takers I will come up with a route.

Team Easy – Settle Away Day

This Sunday is a re run of last years Away Day, a circular ride from Settle that heads into the Trough of Bowland on some really quiet lanes for about 35 miles with about 750m. of climbing – which for those who are counting is quite a bit, but don’t let that put you off – its well worth it.

The arrangements are that we will meet in the Whitefriars Car Park in Settle at 10:00am. This is located just past the Square on the left hand side before the railway bridge and next to the petrol station & Co-Op (Postcode:BD24 9JD) and will cost £3.90 for all day. There are toilets located in the car park.

The cafe stop would be at the Old Vicarage, Tosside – and possibly again in Clapham or later in Austwick – see how it goes.

See you there! – Led by Ian

Hello Medium Group. Not sure who is about on Sunday. Wondering about heading out West up Wharfedale.
Here are a few ideas:
1) Bolton Abbey Via Langbar and back via Fewston. 55 miles hilly.

2) Otley Chevin. 45 miles hilly.

3) Bolton Abbey and back up & down the valley about 60 miles rolling.
Anyone about?

Hi Medium-istes, For Sunday how about a circuit taking in Aldwark bridge, Tollerton, Huby, Crayke, Byland (brew), Oldstead, Kilburn, Carlton Husthwaite, Thornton Bridge, Bozza and home. I will try not use my “cross face” during the ride. Not sure how far it is but probably about 45-50 miles mostly flat, one or two lumps.

Fast Ride
Out to Tadcaster via usual route – Spofforth, Kirby Overblow, Collingham and over the hill to Thorner and Brimham – back via Thorp Arch, Cattal, Wixley and Ouseburn.

That will get us back in plenty of time to see TdeF on the cobbles!
