Rob and James were joined this morning by Lyn who was visiting us from Sheffield. Welcome to CCC Lyn!
From Harrogate it was a rolling start from Harrogate through Hampsthwaite and Shaw Mills towards Markington. Three steady climbs at the start of a ride certainly gets the legs and lungs warmed up! By the time we reached the top of the third climb jackets and arm warmers were off and the sun was out.
A nice fast decent through Markington was the reward for the climbing, before eventually crossing the Ripon/Harrogate road to Burton Leonard. We then headed to Staveley and Boroughbridge, before turning right towards Marton.
At Marton, Rob and Lyn peeled off towards Alwark and Wetherby, whilst James returned to Harrogate for family duties.
