Which was the centre for the filming of TV series “Heartbeat”.
With an early start at 10am from Rising Bridge – a quick motorway dash to Colne, over the twisty moors, onto the great A59.
We somehow missed our programmed stop at Thirsk, but found a new stopover further down the road at lovely Helmsley, with a market square full of bikes for morning coffee and cakes.
It was onto North Yorkshire National Park to Goathland for a visit and lunch.
We took our Shepherd’s return north anticlockwise round the vast beautiful York moors, and onto a coffee and cake stop at Leyburn – then continued on the twisting country roads through the hills on our way onto Skipton and the A59 home.
The weather was forecast was quite correct, with a high of 21degrees, sunny and dry roads.
Another great manhoc ride out and thanks to all, and Rich for the fab photos.
