Hawes Run

We went on a run to Hawes today with a Iain a fellow Z1000SX owner that Helen met on a Z1000SX Facebook page. It just so happens that he lives fairly local to us and also got the bike at the same time as Helen from Robinsons Rochdale. The other really funny thing is that we are near 100% certain that the luggage Helen got at the last minute for our Lakes Tour last year probably came off his bike before he got it.

Bikes @Settle We met up with Iain at the local services by us and then took our usual tried and tested route to Settle via Sabden, Sawley and Wigglesworth. We then proceeded to Hawes and back to Settle via Ribblehead Viaduct. We had intended to stop at the lovely tea rooms in Horton-in-Ribblesdale but we noticed on our way to Hawes that it was closed. So we decided to stop for lunch in Settle and got some food from the Ye Olde Naked Man Cafe instead. The weather was really nice so we sat outside on the picnic benches.

After lunch we headed home early via the usual route as Iain was travelling down to the boat show in Southampton.
