A good turnout saw 7 of us follow Jamie out of Harrogate on a route through Coneythorpe, Burton Leonard, Bishop Monkton, Markington, and with a coffee/cake stop at Ripley where the staff all admired our jerseys (if not the bodies wearing them).
The prospect of getting some CCC shorts and winter jackets was mentioned as well as CCC long cycling weekends away with spa treatments or shopping for the ladies! Alex said he has already booked his camp site for TdF 2011 but I don’t think many of us could persuade our ladies to kip in a tent so we could ride and watch the pros. We then headed back to Harrogate via Knox Lane and Jamie and Alex left us.
The remaining 5 then carried on down to Wetherby via Rudding Park and Follifoot. Duncan went home and 4 of us headed out to Kirkby Overblow where Jonathan then called it a day, leaving Karl, Luke , and Martin to ride on to Weeton, Little Almscliffe Crag and then back.
A really beautiful autumn day and a great ride out.
