Ripon and Vale of York – 15th August 2010

For the first time in a few weeks we actually managed to have a peleton setting off from Harrogate, with eight of us in total heading out towards Ripon via Knaresborough, Farnham, Bishop Monkton and Littlethorpe.  The weather was good, despite the headwind and the forecast promised better as the day went on.

At Littlethorpe, Luke guided us over a footbridge and onto the Boroughbridge Road, past the racecourse before turning off to Skelton-on-Ure with a now very helpful tailwind that pushed us on to our coffee stop at Gilchrists in Boroughbridge.

After re-fuelling we made our way down through Aldborough, the Dunsforths, Whixley and Cattall before returning to Harrogate via Ribston, Spofforth and Follifoot.  By the time we were back in Harrogate the sun was blasting down on us.

A really nice ride and some good banter along the way: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/44664908
