Seven of us met up tonight in really warm and sunny conditions for an evening ride.
We welcomed new rider Cathy and decided that the view over Greenhow was worth seeing on such a clear evening. We set off down Otley Rd to Beckwithshaw and turned right onto Norwood Lane at a fairly steady pace. Just a short while later another rider eased along side of Cathy and myself and shouted hello – it was Jamie out for a quick ride by himself. He had spotted the CCC jerseys and caught us up. So 8 of us now turned right past the Sun Inn and left up Duck Street watching the sun head towards the horizon.
At the top we turned round and enjoyed the descent back down the way we had come and then turned left down Penny Pot Lane for our return to Harrogate via the barracks and the Harlow Moor Rd.
Overall a very steady pace on a beautiful evening. Approx 31 miles at 14 mph average.
