Next weekend, the 15/16 October, is the away weekend to Kettlewell. This event was an instant sell out, the YHA there has only 29 beds and they were taken almost straight away.
There will be two groups setting off from Great Ayton on Saturday morning after tea/coffee and snacks to prepare the riders for the road ahead. A medium group heading out via Middleham on a route of approximately 60 miles and a fast group heading out through Bedale, Masham, Grassington covering approximately 75 miles. Both rides converge at Kettlewell YHA around 17:00.
The aim of the trip is more of an end of season social event where we can have a laugh and joke with liked minded people, enjoy a mid ride coffee stop, and compare stories of the season over a beer in the evening. We will be eating at the recommended ‘Kings Head’ in Kettlewell…and there will be a pre-dinner quiz prepared by Marcus.
On the return trip the fast group will come back via Hawes over the Buttertubs and back down through Swaledale. The medium group will be returning via Aysgarth, Redmire, Grinton Richmond then home.
Claire and Stewart Tanfield have kindly offered to support the ride – transporting all baggage to and from Kettlewell.
