Four of us headed out from Harrogate on the first really autumnal morning of the season. It was chilly and misty. We started the ride by heading down in Knaresborough before heading out to Farnham and Staveley continuing on to Aldborough.
From Aldborough it was down the lanes through the Dunsforth’s before going over the bridge at Adlwark and onto Beningborough. The ride out was a brisk 11/2 hours and we made it to the farm shop 10 minutes before it opened. The kindly obliged and opened a bit early to serve us tea and coffee.
The ride back was more more direct route, back over the bridge at Aldward before heading towards Marton and Arkendale and returning to Harrogate via Knaresborough and Starbeck in some nice September sunshine.
A very pleasant ride totalling 43 miles: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/13601483
