Garyvant’s ride B roads Blast North – ride Sunday 9th October.
It was a welcoming crisp Autumn Day with bright sunshine and dry roads – a biker’s dream day.
Leaving Rising Bridge at 10.30 am to take in the best B roads Lancashire and Yorkshire could offer – twists’ to Slaidburn, and onto Settle, then over to the tops, passing Ribblesdale viaduct winding onto Hawes, for lunch.
Our shepherd then leads us further north to Nateby, a sharp right here, over onto the beautiful moor roads to Leyburn and a coffee pub stop, just before, at the Bridge inn at Grinton.
This latter road and its vista were so awesome, that we had to slow down to appreciate what a great biking country we have on our doorstep.
From Leyburn, it was final twists and bends south to Skipton and onto the final coffee stop on A59 and then home. What a fab day with great company – it was one of the best.
