Darlington Branch Take the Stand

Marc, Colin and myself had a fantastic day out today. The weather was just right for a day out on the bikes, We rode up to Barnard Castle then over the Stand which is a brilliant road over the moors to Arkengarthdale and Reeth, from there to the Manor cafe forrowed my more interesting roads over the moors past Leighton Reservoir , through Lofthouse, Ramsgill , Gouthwaite Reservoir , Pateley Bridge, Wilsill, Ripley, Ripon then Thirsk for a snack and a drink in the cafe then off for a last thrash through Northallererton and home. It was so good I almost forgot to take any pictures.
