Four of us headed out from St Aidans on a slightly chilly evening last night with Almscliffe Crag the destination. We took a familiar route out along Leadhall Lane, before dropping down into Burnbridge and out to the A61 Leeds Road. After going over the Pannal roundabout, we took a left up the lane into Kirkby Overblow, where it was very tempting to end the ride there in one of the pubs. Jamie suggested that as they are equally as good, then why not have a main course in each?
Temptation was overcome and we headed down from K.O., back over the A61 and through Weeton before the climb up to Almscliffe Crag. On the way up we stopped to help a lady and daughter who’s chain had come off one of their bikes. As the light was failing and one of us didn’t have lights we made our way back along the main road, before stopping off for some refreshments at the Black Swan in Burnbridge.
