Seven of us set off on a cold but clear night to do a slightly different route to Fewston and back.
Down the Otley Rd all trying to keep up with Alex, we turned left at Beckwithshaw and right up Norwood Lane and then on to cross the reservoir at Fewston which looked quite dramatic in the half light. We had a good race climbing up the hill to Timble followed by a fast paced descent back down the other side. We returned to Harrogate via Penny Pot Lane which involved a little cyclocross through the mud at the road closure point and then overtook some MTB riders up Harlow Moor Rd. Overall a fun ride on a beautiful clear night and another good turnout.
23 miles at approx 14.5 mph.
