It was a record turnout for a night ride last night with 12 of us meeting for the off at 7.30. The temperature had dropped and there was a lovely clear sky as we set off along Leadhall and down to Burnbridge, before crossing over the Pannal roundabout and turning left up to Kirkby Overblow. In KO we turned right and then left towards Netherby and the sharp climb up past Barrowby Grange, before continuing down through Sicklinghall to Wetherby.
On the way into Wetherby, a few hit some rather large potholes, so after a quick stop to check the bikes over we continued along the Knaresborough Road trying to keep up with Mike who was setting a mean pace on the front. A cappuccino in MacDonalds was tempting, but we decided against it and returned to Harrogate along the Knaresborough riverside and up the hill into Starbeck.
A really nice evening ride with the lights of approx 25 miles.
