    South Dales ride

    Chipping in to help out with group-rides seeing as so many are now planning on coming to Mickey and Johnny's weekend.

    I'll be concentrating mainly on the south of the Dales with a route that will take in sites such as:

    Three Peaks
    Ribblehead Viaduct
    Malham Tarn
    Malham Cove
    Kilnsey Cragg
    The Stridd
    Bolton Abbey
    Menwith Hill (If you like American-built listening posts!)
    Scarr House Reservoir
    Buttertubbs Pass (You'll really appreciate the Tour de France riders when you've been up and over here!)
    Tan Hill
    Aysgarth Falls
    The epic dry-stone walls and barns scattered all around.

    For those of you travelling to the area for the first time these sites and roads will give you a real taster of what we have here in good old Yorkshire!

    This will be a steady ride of about 150 miles and will take 6 - 7 hrs which will include time for breaks/lunch and a bit of a walk-about to the likes of Malham Cove/The Stridd.

    Aiming to leave Dent at 10.00am so ensure you are as full with juice as possible (R Johnny's thread) as Skipton will probably be our nearest fuel-stop.

    Drop-off will be the order of the ride so will be looking for a tail-end to help out.

    Oh and yes - we will include a few 'U' turns and we probably will get lost but who cares

    Back in after a cracking run with a few updates...
    After a couple of hours I'm putting a break in at The Strid where we will park up and have a short walk down to The Strid. (Look it up on the 'net). Lunch has also been arranged here so I'll be ringing in with numbers a few days before. Parking is usually £4 for bikes (Duke of Devonshire pays for his gin and tonics out of it!) but I've negotiated half price rates ... I'm happy with it to be honest as we'll be able to leave bikes and gear secure.
    I've also got to bear in mind some of you will have already travelled a long way so I will be taking out the loop around Buttertubs, Tan Hill and Aysgarth Falls ... Probably being a tad too optimistic to start with.
    Bring it on!

    DC ... You're more than welcome.
    The Strid might be a good catch up spot...we should be there for an hour and you can have lunch too ? (12.30/1.00pm by my reckoning)
    Am working on a route to share but not very good at the IT stuff to be honest...I will persevere though.

    Route...

    See if this works...

    There is a return leg from Pateley Bridge to Lofthouse - this is intentional as the road is superb and the destination amazing! (Blame that Johnnyboxer chap - he took me there many moons ago when Foot & Mouth was in!)

    (There is an option to cut across from Buckden to Hawes cutting out the loop around Aysgarth/Tan Hill - see how we feel on the day)
