Only three of us cycled this evening on what was a slightly chilly summer’s evening. We headed out of Harrogate up the newly re-surfaced Otley Road, before turning right out towards Penny Pot Lane. We were grateful of the shelter of Penny Pot as the wind was a stiff block-headwind.
At the end of Penny Pot, we took a left-turn and then head back up past Little Almscliffe Crag and descending rapidly down into Beckwithshaw, where we turned right to climb up to the top of Brackenthwaite Lane and another fast descent into Brunbridge for a quick stop at the Black Swan (no beers this week, just coffee and tea as we were a bit cold).
After our legs had seized up it was a steady return back to Harrogate along Leadhall Lane.
