Club Rides – Sunday 12th May

Pressed for Time Ride

Team Easy
Sunday looks to be better weather, so how about 30 miles with some hills, Birstwith and Brimham Rocks.

Steady Ride
Flattish 70km loop with a stop in Ripon at 45km?

Medium Ride

Fast Ride
For this weeks faster group ride can I suggest a wee turn up the White Horse, brew stop at glider cafe and then return leg via Aldwark.
Its a nice training ride for the Struggle Dales in a couple of weeks (why do I keep signing up for these things 🤔). Led by Sean.

Hi pressed for time
No Amanda- this week suggest Farnham Arkendale Marton Aldborough Boroughbridge Roecliffe and back via Bishop Monkton

Team Easy
Newby Hall and Spa Gardens at Ripon. Looks like we’ll be with the Pressed for time gang for the first few miles.

About 30 miles, not too hilly.

Steady Ride
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.

See you there

Pateley Bridge and Toft Gate Barn Cafe

Forecast look OK for Sunday so how about a ride to Masham – should be about 45 miles. A few hills on the way out but a bit flatter coming back.
Cafe stop at Masham either Johnny Bagdhads or Black Sheep Brewery – whichever you think is most appropriate.

See you there!

Its Liege-Bastogne-Liege day, so here’s a 50mile Knaresborough-Pateley-Knaresborough ride, with some lumpy Ardennes type roads, and even an uphill sprint to the Market Square at the end. We can have a brew at Fountains Abbey. See you Sunday, cheers.

As its Ronde van Vlaanderen weekend, here is a 55 miler that takes in a few short steep climbs and then a blast home on the flat, we can stop at Ripon for a brew if we fancy it. See you Sunday, cheers.



Club Rides – Sunday 31st March

Pressed for Time Ride
Markington, Bishop Thornton and Hampsthwaite back via Harrogate, Bilton and Beryl Burton – About 25 miles – see you there! 😀🚲

Team Easy
Team Easy possibly off to Fewston, approx 28 miles and a few hills with a stop at Fewston farm shop. However, if some returning Team Easy members are coming out and don’t fancy the hills I’m sure the rest of us can easily be persuaded to do something more gentle …

Steady Ride
The votes are in! So the overall winner is for a Flat Ride – so I suggest about a 35 mile route taking in Newby Hall, Ripon and Fountains Abbey. Cafe stop at either Spa Gardens or NT @ Fountains.

See you there!

Club Rides – Sunday 24th March

Pressed for Time Ride
Let’s go to Thorpe Underwood via Little Ribston, Whixley and back via Great Oesburn, Arkendale and Lingerfield. About 26 miles pretty flat. See you 09.30.

Team Easy
Cowthorpe, Walton, Boston Spa, Wetherby, Spofforth. About 27 miles and fairly flat. Everyone welcome to join us. Cafe stop at Wetherby.

Steady Ride
I think the forecast is OK for Sunday – so after last weeks hilly ride to Leeds, I could lead a flat-ish ride of about 40 miles taking in the sights of Boroughbridge, Cundall, Asenby, Melmerby, Wath, Ripon, Bushop Monkton and back home.

Cafe stop would be in Ripon (say Olivers) at about 30 miles unless we come across anything before that, but I dont think we will.

See you there!

Team Easy
For Sunday we are proposing a 26 mile ride to Ripon, looks a lot better forecast than today!

Steady Ride
If the weather is OK on Sunday, I could lead a ride out to Roundhay Park via Kirby Overblow and Eccup. Coming back through Thorner, Bramham and Wetherby.

Probably about 40 miles – hilly at the start but gets flatter towards the end.

Cafe stop at Lakeside Cafe Roundhay Park – dont forget the bike lock!

See you there!

Fast group – suggest we do what we posted for last week – still a strong west wind forecast, so a North to South 50miler to Bedale and back looks sensible. cheers, Mark.

Pressed for Time Ride
Last week was somewhat hilly so this week I suggest a flatter ride out to Whixley via Little Ribston and Cowthorpe and back via Thorpe Underwood, Great Ouseburn and Arkendale. I’m away so Linda may lead the way and if it’s cold, windy and soggy it’s a duvet day! Enjoy!

Sundays weather isn’t looking right good – cold, wet and with a strong west wind – so here’s a North to South Fast Group 50miler to Bedale and back, that we can do without stopping. If forecast starts to improve, I’ll post something a bit more interesting! See you Sunday.
