Only John and James ventured out on this initially chilly Sunday morning. However, the sun soon started to appear and the morning turned into a beautiful autumnal day perfect for riding.
We headed out from Harrogate towards Knaresborough, and out onto the Boroughbridge road before turning off through Scriven and Lingerfield. It was then onto a familiar route to Farnham and Staveley and up towards Boroughbridge. Just after going over the A1 we turned off to Arkendale and headed down through the Dunsfords, Ouseburn, Whixley and Cattal at a fairly steady pace before eventually stopping in Wetherby at the Shambles Tea Rooms for a well earned coffee.
After leaving Wetherby we headed for Kirk Deighton, before turning off to Spofforth and returning to Harrogate via Follifoot and Rudding Park. The ride was a nice and easy flat ride which ended up being 43 miles in total.
