Big Meet - Masham

Helen and I went out yesterday with Nukb for the first big meet of 2010 at Masham. Helen went on a ride over some goats tracks with Deb, while I went on a red run led by Muddy.

Gary trying out Helen's Variobars.I met Muddy and Dan at Clitheroe services and we then took the A59 to Skipton. We turned left in Gisburn and took the A682 to Long Preston. In Long Preston we turned left and joined the A65 to Settle. We didn’t stop in Settle and continued on to Hawes via the Ribblehead Viaduct on the B6479 and B6255. We soon arrived in Hawes and stopped for a quick brew.

We left Hawes on minor roads and went over Buttertubs Pass to Muker. At Muker we joined the B6270 and took that all the way to Reeth. We continued on through Reeth and Grinton on the B6270 and the turned left onto the A6108 to Richmond. In Richmond we joined the B6271 to Scorton where we continued on the B6271 to Northallerton. Just before Northallerton we turned left in Yafford and cut across to the A684. We took this road all the way to Bedale and then joined the B6268 to Masham. We arrived in Masham at about 12:30pm, several groups had already arrived, including Helen’s group.

Helen's pillon for the day, Settle the sheep. We spent a decent amount of time chatting with the other regions at Masham before setting off for home. Helen’s wrists had started hurting so we both broke off our previous rides and headed back with CJ and the main Lancs group. We left Masham on the A6108 heading for Middleham. Just after Middleham we turned left and cut across to the A684 to miss out going through Leyburn. We continued on the A684 all the way to Hawes passing through Aysgarth and Bainbridge. The rest of the group stopped in Hawes, but Helen and I continued back to Settle via the Ribblehead Viaduct. We stopped in Hawes for a cream tea at the Ye Olde Naked Man Cafe. While we where there the rest of the Lancs group turned up and also the Yorkshire red run.

Helen and I said farewell to everyone and proceeded home on our own via Rathmell and Sawley. Then onto the A59 past Clitheroe on our way back to Heywood via the M66.
