Only one rider today as the others had family duties to attend to!
Headed out towards Beningborough Hall on a breezy Sunday morning. The ride out was nice and easy as the wind was behind me. I was hoping to have a drink and food stop at the farm shop, but due to the speed of the ride I was out there well before the shop opened. 18 miles in just over an hour – can’t grumble with that.
It was then an about turn to head back towards Harrogate into the stiff breeze. I altered my return route slightly to try and avoid the worst of the wind, and instead of going the direct route back I headed from Arkendale down towards Goldsborough and Knaresborough Riverside to get some shelter. Had a quick coffee at Rascals Cafe before heading back up the hill towards home.
All in all a nice ride taking around 3 hours.
