Social Series Rides Sunday 18th April 2021 (we can stop at cafes)

Gentle Ride to Addingham

This gentle mainly flat ride goes on the back road towards Bolton Abbey and then we walk over the footbridge to Addingham. If it is a nice day we will have our café stop at the Fleece Deli in Addingham but if it is full (it is only a tiny café) we will stop at Ilkley on the return ride. There are some short sections of main road on this route but it is a lovely gentle route and an ideal introduction to social cycling!
Option: divert to look at the Stepping Stones at Burley in Wharfedale, there is a short section of rough bridleway but it is a nice break from the road


La Stazione at Ilkley Train Station

Stretching Ride to North Rigton
Stretching option A 23 miles
A really lovely loop around the Wharfe Valley, with a climb up the hill from Asquith to the Snowden Ridge and then onto Fewston and then round to North Rigton (most of this ride is the reverse route of our Stretching Ride to Fewston) There are fantastic views of the reservoirs and you will see Almscliffe Cragg from all sides. The café stop is at 15 miles so you may want to take a snack with you to sustain you up the final hill climbs before coffee!
