Another good turnout saw 7 of us braving the cold tonight. Looking for something different and not hilly Luke suggested we ride to Tockwith and back. We set off down the Wetherby Road turning right down past Rudding Park. We crossed over the bypass and then a bit of a sprint occurred all the way down Haggs Road. Turning left at the Spofforth mini roundabout we made our way to Little Ribston, Cowthorpe, right just before Tockwith, and into the headwind along the B1224 to Wetherby and then back to Harrogate via Kirk Deighton, Spofforth, Follifoot, Rudding Park, & Wetherby Rd again.
The ride started out clear and dry but we hit strong winds followed by sleet towards the end. The mileage from St Aidans was approx 28 miles and my speedo showed an average of 15.2 mph – a fast one.
