Hi all so after discussion we have decided to do away with the Sign on sheets as guidance has changed (I’m sure people will be pleased), we are keeping the meeting place at North Parade Car Park, Otley as it is a larger space. We are only in the position of offering a Stretching ride at the moment with Steven J Moncur and Jerry (Sandra Longhorn) leading rides to Thorner. Not sure if Jerry has done this before however if someone could step up to support Jerry that would be great. Also if someone wants to come forward to lead a gentle ride that would be great.
I am a little concerned that it does appear to be the same people offering to lead rides and that we will exhaust the good will of people who are trying to support club runs. Therefore if people would like to lead rides please let me know or if you want to discuss this further please let me know by emailing email@example.com
This relatively flat 30 mile route goes through Pool, Bramhope, Eccup, Alwoodley, Shadwell, Thorner, Scarcroft and returns to Otley on a similar route as far as Eccup, but then descends Black Hill Lane and onto the Arthington-Pool Road.
The Dexter at the end of Wigton Lane (0113 203 4991) or Delectations (0113 289 3888) on Main Street in Thorner (if the weather is looking good enough to sit outside.) This cafe has a fantastic “hidden garden” to the rear with plenty of room for cyclists and their bikes, but there’s very limited seating inside (see https://www.facebook.com/delectationsinthorner/)
