Start at 9.30 meeting at the Cloisters in Kirkby Stephen. Plenty of free parking near the fire station on Christian Head Rd.
Our route goes over Tan Hill for coffee at the famous pub (12 miles). Then down Arkengarthdale to Reeth for ice cream and/or lunch. Back west by Swaledale through Muker (further refreshments) and over Birkdale Common before a lovely descent to Nateby and Kirkby Stephen. 45 miles total.
The ride on the Runs List is graded 2 bikes: it is hilly but is a moderate length and to be ridden at a moderate pace to encourage members to dive into Yorkshire in a modest way. Hope some of you can join me. The weather continues hot but I'm hoping for a gentle cooling breeze.
