It's one I had prepared earlier, haven't ridden it yet.

At this rate, we'll have some routes in the bag for 2018.

Some great roads in that area. Unfortunately, a little too far away for the real crackers. Would make a really long day( but it's not getting dark until ~2130 ).

Will crack on and refine the route and load it just in case.

After all the effort you and Chris (K9doc) have made with the routes I'm sure people will attend.


I'm looking forward to Saturday and which ever route we take I'm sure it will be enjoyable,  with coffee breaks to talk bo**ocks  ;)

Sorry as I know that doesn't help matters....

Hi Michael, Do you fancy meeting at the same place as we met last time for the ride over to Wetherby? Say an 8:15 meet to give us time to get there and some breakfast before the 10:30 departure.

They certainly know how to present food. Not sure I'd eat some of the stuff they do though.

Had another look at the Lincoln route, have trimmed it down to 135.8 miles in 3 hrs 59 mins.
Bearing in mind, we've all got an hour or more each way from home to Wetherby, like to aim for around 4 hours riding plus 3 stops.

The forecast is looking good for Saturday, especially towards the east coast, I feel a ride in the Yorkshire Wolds coming on.

Could look something like this,
