HAB Sunday County Durham 17th March Ride Out

Happy St Patrick’s Day to you all. Hope you are looking forward to our Sunday 17th March Ride Out. Although this is a relatively long ride (150miles) it will take us through some amazing scenery and incredible biking roads in North Yorkshire and County Durham. Take care as it is easy to look at the scenery when you should be looking at the road (and vice versa). The ride will start at Morrisons, Boroughbridge YO51 9UR. Meet from 9.00, briefing at 9.15, departing 9.30. Please arrive with full
tanks (refuel at 100 miles). Leaving via the town centre over the bridge, turning right and right again heading for Cundall. After winding our way through Topcliffe we will shortly arrive at Skipton-on-Swale then turn right onto the superb B6267 to Masham and on the A6108 through Leyburn, stopping for our mid-morning break at the ever-popular Manor Farm Biker Cafe in Bellerby (25miles) DL8 5QH.

From Bellerby northwards to Richmond along the back route, crossing the bridge into town, then on through to Gilling West crossing the A66 and north to Staindrop. From Staindrop North West to Middleton-in-Teesdale (75 Miles) for lunch at one of the several cafes or even the chip shop. Leaving Middleton in Teesdale, crossing the bridge and traveling down the famous B6276 to Brough, then into Kirkby Stephan (100miles) to the fuel stop for those in need (second garage is cheaper!). From here it’s left at the lights and down through the Mallerstang Valley on the B6259 turning Left on to the A624 at the Moorcock Inn to Hawes.
At Hawes it is over the tops to Deepdale, Yockenthwaite, Buckden and Kettlewell before turning left through Grassington to finish the ride at Stump Cross Caverns HG3 5JL. Please note that this ride is high altitude route and could be difficult in icy conditions. Should this be the case and we need to cancel we will publish a cancellation notice on our Facebook page by 8am on the morning of the ride. Looking forward to seeing you at Morrisons, Boroughbridge.

Bob Hill and Andy Pratt.
