Most of the CCC saw the weather forecast and decided to stay in bed, so only three of us, headed out from Harrogate towards the Vale of York and Tadcaster.
The early part of the ride saw us drop down into Knaresborough and along the Riverside and Abbey Road, before heading out towards Tockwith and Long Marston past the Battle of Marston Moor Memorial. Thankfully the rain was holding off at this point and we managed to keep the pace fairly brisk along the flat country lanes.
It was then onto Askham Richard and Wighill before dropping down into Tadcaster and heading for Tykes Cafe for a well earned cuppa and a break from the now descending rain. From Tadcaster we returned to Harrogate via Thorpe Arch, Wetherby, Spofforth and Follifoot.
