Saturday found the riders leaving York, heading to Whitby via the Yorkshire Wolds, Pickering and Grosmont, where the heather was in full bloom, before reaching the YHA Whitby for a well earned rest and heading on foot into town for famous Whitby fish and chips.
Sunday saw the riders remount their trusty two wheeled steeds to set out on the return route via Danby, Hutton Le Hole and Kirkbymoorside which included several steep ascents back up onto the surrounding heather clad moors. Only a couple of repairs to deal with so all went very well!!!
All successfully survived and enjoyed the demanding weekend, climaxing in the eventual finish at YHA York.
Well Done All Riders. All thanks go to John Wilson of Simple Cycle Tours plus his able assistants Sal and Emma whose hard work made the event such a success.
