Just Craig and Karl ventured out on a rather wet Sunday morning.
We set off out to Boroughbridge via the usual Farnham, Staveley route and found ourselves in Boroughbridge earlier than expected. We decided to press on to The Dunsforths, Gt Ouseburn, Thorpe Underwood, Cattal and then realised the next …possibility for a coffee stop was Wetherby. so after getting very wet and battling into the prevailing westerly wind we eventually got ourselves warmed up in the cafe in The Shambles at Wetherby for a much needed Cappuccino and teacake.
Getting going again afterwards was tough but the road up through Sickinghall to Kirkby Overblow warmed the legs up again. We then rode past Pannal golf club and parted company at the turning for Rudding Park where Craig headed home to Harrogate and I rode back to Wetherby.
Mileage approx 42 from Harrogate. 60 from Wetherby. Despite the weather it was an enjoyable ride.
