North Harrogate MTB Ride – 28th November 2010

The snows came down around Harrogate this weekend and as such it was too dangerous to get the road bikes out.  Feeling the need to get the legs turning a few of us decided to dust off the mountain bikes from the back of the garage and hit the bridleways around Harrogate.

Five of us set off on a route planned by Jamie and within a mile of starting James had hit the deck on some ice!  Dispite that we carried on along the Beryl Burton Way through Bilton and down into Knaresborough.  From there we headed to Farnham where we went off-road for several miles through South Stainley and Cayton, before hitting the tarmac again at Ripley.

We then returned to Harrogate through Killinghall and Know Mill Lane before collapsing into Cafe Rosso for coffee and cakes to help us defrost.

A good fun ride in beautiful wintry conditions.
