Wetherby – 15th July 2010

We were joined this evening by a new recruit – Tamzin.  Good to have you along Tamzin and welcome!!  Three of us headed out of Harrogate down through Burnbridge and over the Pannal roundabout before taking a left up a back lane into Kirkby Overblow where we met up with Karl and Duncan.

From K.O. we headed down a familiar route towards Sicklinghall and Wetherby.  Conditions were a bit tricky as it there was a stiff breeze blowing.  At Wetherby we then made our way onto Knaresborough.  The pace was high along this stretch of road as we had a nice tail wind and speeds got upto 25-30mph at some points.  This meant that we arrived at Ronald’s coffee & burger bar fairly quickly.

As we rolled out of the golden arches the clouds had moved in and the rain started to fall.  We took the sheltered route back to Harrogate via Abbey Road and up the hill into Starbeck.  Tamzin then continued on to cycle back to Leeds – nice one T!

A good mid-week ride…
