    Billy-No-Mates ride to the BB

    As I am a sad fecker will be riding from Sheffield to the Bash on my own Friday.

    Anybody want to join me ?

    It will be a very gentle ride, going via back roads (virtually) all the way. Route has a few boring bits to Castleford but nice after that, turning very nice after Tadcaster.

    Rough plan,

    Wentworth Village (near Sheffield) about 10:30

    Tadcaster 11:30

    Aldwark Wooden Toll Bridge (free for bikes) 12:00

    Topcliffe 12:30

    Near ish to Northallerton about 13:00

    Piercebridge about 14:00

    A68 Cafe late lunch / early tea 14:30

    BB for about 5ish

    There's a few from the Sheffield area riding up on the Friday, dunno if they'll stick their noses in here though beforehand. I'm setting off this morning with another couple of UKGSer's for a night in the Wheatsheaf at Carperby tonight

    Tours, training or custom made earplugs ... it's all here.

    I intend on being at Northallerton by then :p

    Will pm you my number, if you want give me a bell when you get to Wetherby, if you are shooting up the A1 from there could meet at junction 56, can show the way from there. The 68 cafe serves really good food if you fancy that.

    Guess you are going to be pretty tired riding up from Kent

    Could be a plan mate!! I may even get to Wetherby services a little earlier, so as soon as Ditchy poo arrives, has a coffee & a slash I'll give you a call for sure & if we can meet up.

    I'll reply to your PM with my mobile number too....

    Nice to have a local event: I have to ride for an hour and do 38 miles.

    Probably take longer to pack.

    See you all there Friday.
