Vale of York and Norwood Edge – 20th February 2011

11 of us met this morning including new riders Mark, and Tizz (welcome both).  We opted for a flattish route – so we set off to Stavely where Ben and Martin P turned back.  The rest of us carried on up to Boroughbridge and then on to Great & Little Ouseburn, Thorp Underwood, Whixley, Cattal, …and then on the road to Wetherby Paul put in a couple of bursts, the second of which left everybody trailing.
A refuel in Wetherby at the cafe in The Shambles saw all of us ordering teacakes (well why not?) and then we endured the misery of starting again in the cold & damp.  Heading up to Sickinghall and Kirkby Overblow, 6 riders returned to Harrogate via Burn Bridge, with Dave, Luke and Karl opting to carry on and climb Norwood Edge.  This hurt.  A lot.  Overall the pace was fairly high today and congratulations to Tizz who completed her longest ever ride with us.  Hope to see both you and Mark back again. For those that went onto Norwood Edge the ride covered 60 miles and was great fun despite the weather.
