Reeth Run

Yesterday we went on a late run out to Reeth for some ice creams. We headed over to Clitheroe by our usual roads and then followed our usual route to Settle via the minor backs roads of Sawley and Wigglesworth. We passed through Settle and joined the B6479 and headed for Horton in Ribblesdale where we stopped for lunch. 

After lunch we left Horton in Ribblesdale and then soon arrived at Ribblehead Viaduct. We then followed the stunning B6255 to Hawes. We passed through Hawes and then turned off the main road to take the road over Buttertubs Pass to Muker. As we passed over Buttertubs Pass I was sure we passed CJ coming the other way. Anyways we ZX-9R @ Reethpassed through Muker and then followed the B6270 through Gunnerside to Reeth. We soon arrived in Reeth and then CJ turned up as he had noticed us come passed him as well. We stopped here for a while for a chat and to sample one of the many lovely ice cream flavours on offer.

We left Reeth with CJ in tow on the B6270 and headed towards Grinton, where we turned onto minor roads and headed over Wipperdale Bank past the rifle range to Leyburn. In Leyburn we joined the A684 and headed back to Hawes. From Hawes we re-traced our route all the way back home, with a brief stop near Sawley as we had now also picked up DocB as well.
