    cheers. So many rides available now I am so confused as to who/what is booked! I think I offered TEC on JB's as well now as never had a reply from this thread. I'll be there friday anyway to sort it out and offer my help where need be. Happy to do any of the rides really. Just don't want to inconvenience anyone with my plus 1

    No worries Donovan - apologies for not replying. I'm sure you'll have a hoot whichever ride you go on.

    If you are considering this run will you step forward please - I am away until Monday and not sure whether I can access 't internet.

    I will be contacting the café at The Strid on Wednesday for numbers eating there.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Lunch sorted at The Strid for about 1.00pm.

    I'll be in the main car park in Dent just up the road from the camp site for 9.30 ready for the off at 10.00... Look out for a black and yellow 100.

    First part of the ride goes down a gated road passing Whernside on your left ... This is one of the classic single-track roads in the Dales. (I don't think the other rides take this route to start with).

    From there we touch on Ingleton and head south taking in Ribblehead Viaduct then to Malham - brew stop and short walk if you want either on top of the Cove or to its face...fact : my wife has instructions to throw my ashes from the top of the cove into a headwind

    Skipton next (fuel here if needed)

    Out to Bolton Abbey for lunch then up Blubberhouses crossing over to Dacre/Pateley Bridge on a 26 x bends road to the Res at Lofthouse.

    Back down the same 26 bendy road and on to Appletreewick, Burnsall, Grassington, Kettlewell and to Hawes (decide here whether we head back to Dent or stay out a tad longer looking at Tan Hill).

    Back to Dent and pub

    Looking forward to meeting some old and new faces and a great weekend

    Not "THE Gated Road" - i'd better steer clear of that one!!! this is possibly the road i came to Dent on last week via Inglestone.... when as you might have seen from another post the bike kinda.....rolled off the stand...

    Yes ... THE gated road ... always wait for a car to come and do the gate for you (or Johnny and his ride.... What time do you think you're coming down John?)

    Thanks for leading us on that great route. It was good to meet some fellow 'tossers'. I'm sorry I was unable to join you for a few beers back in Dent. Hopefully next time.
