I'm thinking of taking a few days off and doing some riding off-road in Yorkshire and was wondering if there are any areas (OS Maps) that could be recommended?!?!
Saves me hitting the wrong ones and wasting my very sparse days off.
Views prefered, medium sort of difficulty.
Any help would be much appriciated.

I am hopeless at that sort of thing, but if you need some company on a day out, let me know.

There's plenty around the north york moors national park area that's easily GSable, isn't busy generally and offers fantastic scenery , os maps OL26 and OL27. I often go up there in the week if you or anyone else fancies a ride round give me a shout. If anyone wants a rideout over the easter weekend let me know and I'll put something together.

Cheers

There is a ride out taking shape for either Friday 21st or Saturday 22nd, meeting in Thirsk. It'll all be GSable though knobblies would be a good idea.

Meet in Thirsk by the clock tower in the marketplace, there's usually plenty of bikes there on a bank holiday so you shouldn't miss it. re tyre choice, the 3 pics give a good idea of the type of terrain, it's mostly dry gravelly tracks with the odd bit of mud and a few rocky sections but nothing severe. your tourances should be ok, there'll be plenty of people to help pick bikes up anyway :rolleyes:.

Just noticed the date you're going ( thought it was this friday :blast then someone mentioned the bank holiday and I thought hang on a minute ) and happy days ! I am back at hospital on the 20th when hopefully they are taking my pot off, so count me in.

Apparently my left arm will still be very weak, also I am riding on Avon Distanzia's, so bagsy not at the back as I may need help picking it up :)

Can I suggest those going from the York area, or east of, even south of, could meet at the pub on the A19 roundabout on the ring road......I think it's the Tom Cobbleighs. If any takers just need to sort a time ??

Sure you'll not be the only one. In four trips out i've been face down four times! The last one a nice long slide through this ford. Didn't see the algae on the concrete base, front end away and down i went. Water were bloody freezing aswell.

The ford in question, Between Hawnby and Rievaulx

Can those coming on Friday please confirm, just so noone gets left behind if they are running late. They is no scheduled break to eat until we get to Whitby which will/should be sometime in the afternoon so bring something to keep you going until then. Also it looks like we might be in for some proper Yorkshire weather, ie if you don't like it wait 5 minutes and it will be different, so bring appropriate gear. The ride will be somewhere around 200kms so please aim to be ready in Thirsk at 10 with fuel in your bike. Any last minute questions post on here otherwise see you all Friday. :thumb

I've been watching this thread with inrerest. I'm hoping to pick up a trailie on Thursday night, and would love to get it out for the day Friday, but it would be very last minute for me as I have to get my dog to the vet first thing Friday morning.

Would it be ok to turn up on-spec at ten? I won't commit cos I don't want anyone hanging around waiting for me if I can't get.

And if I can't, any chance I could tag along with some of you guys at a later date, as I don't know any routes and would need to pick your brains ?
