    Leaving the Pub car park 10am make sure you have a full tank, if anyone needs to fuel up before departure, there is a garage 1.5 miles away (turn right) from the Pub/camp site.
    Spookily I have just seen this but watching a lit of bit of the Dales earlier tonight and Ade said " join me after the break when we'll be visiting ???????? (didnt catch the place) Britains highest single drop waterfall ................it was definitely The Dales and not The Wales

    PS Some remote countryside there ,will there be a chance of a petrol stop along the way....wont manage it on a tank .

    Looks like Hardraw Force which is England's highest single drop waterfall.... less than half the height of the one we're visiting

    No problem with fuel stops... I think there is one 'garage' we pass on the route that has a couple of 45gal hand pump drums

    Thumbs up

    Voted for the short 125 miles ride.
    Get back to campsite, relax and maybe sink a few beers.

    However I'm game for the long ride if the majority are in favour of it but the consensus of opinion is for the short ride at the moment.
