We moved our normal Sunday ride to the bank holiday Monday and 5 of us headed out of Harrogate up past Little Almscliffe Crag and onwards over the damn at Fewston before we started out long climb up through Timble and onto Askwith Moor.
The forecast was for cold winds and showers and that certainly lived up to expectations, especially after our coffee stop in Otley at the Manor House Tea Room. From Otley we were intending to head to Wetherby via Pool, Castley and Weeton, but that was where the rain started. In Kirkby Overblow it was decided to head back to Harrogate via Rudding Park for an earlier than normal finish.
Dispite the weather it was still a nice ride and certainly much hillier than last weeks excursion to Beningborough.
