    I've been asked where I'm going on Saturday so roughly I will be heading east from Dent, Gayle, Bainbridge then south, Thoralby, Newbiggin, Kiddatones, Cray, Buckden, Kettlewell, Arncliffe, Malham moor, Malham , then north east towards Winterburn, Hetton, Cracoe, Linton, Burnsall, Appletreewick, north towards Patelybridge, Risplith, Kirby Malzeard, Grewlthorpe, Masham, Well, Snape, Bedale, Richmond, west towards Marske, Grinton, descending south back to Dent.

    There will be beautiful scenery ( whatever the weather) and plenty of cake. Fuelling can be done night before which should give us options at Pately, Masham and Richmond and Hawes at the end.

    All welcome.

    I have sorted a route very similar in that there be the odd gated road, covering part of the Dales around Dent and a run through the trough of Bowland. Have run it a few times built in two quaint yet smart tea rooms,Petrol stop too. Well it had to be done as 2 peeps already showing interest. So far that's 4 of us including the Mrs on her ickle F650gs. The pace will be within all speed limits, 95% of the roads are back lanes and moorland crossings. What the GS was made for. Anyone remotely interested do sign up, will be departing from Dent Carpark at 10am can pick up fuel at 20 mile point. Full tanks is better. Any questions do send a pm.
    Toodle Pip time for some shut eye as up at 6am

    Hi Andrew

    This trip sounds nice. We were up around the trough of bowland a couple of weeks ago and there was plenty of snow up on the passes it's one of our favourite places so reserve 2 places for me and the wife please - fingers crossed that the weather stays nice

    Will do, it's an area Julie and I have spent a weekend in October last year and have had a few runs up there on me Tod and with brother in law. For this run have reversed the route a little . It's a belter plenty of the ooooooh and ahhhhh moments good roads. Did it in biblical rain ☔️ now that was fun. In the sunshine though a joy. Look forward to meeting you and the Mrs.
    Have not done a gps route yet as just from memory but will put something together if this latest update works.

    What sort of pace will you be setting? I don't want to rag the arse off a two up 27 year old R100gs.

    Ride to slowest machine no one left out. Will mark turns if a big group. A bimble with scope to open the taps as you do. Tend to stay within all speed limits. Nobody ever confused me with other faster riders
    When you see me you will appreciate that my bike is slower than some given the weight disadvantage
    You will be most welcome and fine on the day
