Rock Steady Crew – Sunday 23 June

Weather forecast looks OK for Sunday – so how about a trip to Masham, after a few weeks of flat rides this would make a change. Should be hilly on the way out and pretty flat on the way back. https://cycle.travel/map/journey/110278 About 48 sunny miles

Cafe stop in Masham at Johnny Baghdad’s or wherever we can get a seat.

See you there!

Medium Ride
A suggestion for the medium group – Bylands Abbey???

Fast Ride
Hello Fast Group. For this Sunday’s ride I suggest Terrington. Out via Thornton Bridge, Ampleforth. Brew at Yorkshire Lavender. Back via Easingwold, Aldwark. 65 miles flattish with a lumpy bit before brew. Rare Easterly tail wind home! Garmin link: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/25366095

Any takers?

Steady Group Ride – Easingwold

Thinking of going to Easingwold – but on a slightly different route to usual. Probably 40-45 fairly flat miles.

For a change we could try The Curious Table which gets a good write up.
