Half-Day Social Series Rides – Sunday 21st October

This Sunday we have 3 rides heading off to Eccup, Thorner and Sicklinghall.


Gentle Ride (18 miles) 

Being led by none other than El Presidente herself Liz Hills, this gentle ride goes to Eccup for the now traditional photo opportunity at the side of the reservoir followed by coffee and cake at the Donkey Sanctuary, this ride is 18 miles long and has only one climb of note going up Creskeld lane (which has a great spot to have a breather if required halfway up) and has a great descent back to Otley.

Stretching Ride 1 to Sicklinghall (27 Miles)

Always a popular ride, this ride goes along Castley Lane and Weeton Lane before climbing up Swindon Lane through Kirkby Overblow and onto Sicklinghall for coffee, the return trip gives the speedy riders a chance to fly down Kearby Cliff before retracing the route home. This ride sees the welcome return of Stephen Gallagher leading .
