Durham Branch Head to the Manor Bourne (well the Café anyway)

4 of us braved the rain and turned up for todays ride over to the Manor Cafe.

Rain eased and even the sun started to shine on the way..

We left Greggs and headed to Bishop Auckland for a fuel stop before continuing to Winston, Gilling West, Richmond then on to Belerby and the Manor café where we meet 3 members from Darlington branch.

After a bacon roll and cuppa we headed off towards Leyburn then turning right towards Reeth, Laithwaite before arriving in Barnard Castle.

These roads were quite challenging due to laying water and snow on the hills.

But we all arrived safe and sound if not a bit  damp from the massive puddle we ended up going through. We left Barnard Castle and split off home.

Thanks for supporting these rides and look forward to the next one.
