A magic Friday skive.

Post by Yoozy » Fri Oct 31, 2014 6:08 pm

What a day to go for a rip. It looked like it was clear all day, and it was. Dead warm, roads were pretty empty and hardly any shite on them. Saw a mate in his wagon near Clitheroe so gave him a wave.

Went up to Kettlewell, not been there this year I don't think and its one of me favourite rides.

Image

It was like this all day,

Image

Its worth going to Kettlewell just to do the road to Leyburn alone, its got everything :D

Image

Stopped off at the Manor cafe for a butty and some booze,

Image

Image

Went up to Catterick and back down towards Bolton Abbey and then to Muker, over Buttertubs, and back and did it again, no one on it seemed daft not too :twisted:

Image

The road to Aysgarth was shut which was a shame, so I thought I'd be clever and take a short cut through somewhere I've always wanted to go, Crackpot, but its a dead end and only crackpots go there,

Image

No, its not mud :roll:

Through Hawes for a magnificent run over Ribblehead, not another vehicle on the road, except 2 bellends wobbling all overt shop on GS's, one thing you don't do on that road is wobble,, you batter it, so whipped past them on clean, dry corners just like a mid summer day, and it was just a pleasure to be on a bike feeling alive, going for it. Didn't bother with Bentham and the Trough as I could see it getting dull so blasted down the a59, hardly anything on it and a surprisingly decent road in places when its like that.

Was just beating the sun on me way back,

Image

The booty,

Image

Jolly nice it is too,

Image

Proper good day out, arguably the best of the year not counting Picos :P

Jealous, dead jealous me. :cry:

Great roads up there, and today was a cracker for weather, down here too. There was me, sitting in me poxy office, dreaming of the next big bike trip, I sometimes completely forget how much fun you can have on a day out like that.

Glad you had a good 'un. Now, if that's not mud, I presume it's shit? Was that to try and make your bloody wheel stickers and tassles blend in a bit more? :lol:
This is what I do with mine....

Just read about you lot waffling on about a place called 'Crackpot'. Approx one hour later I'm watching a show on the box with Stephen Fry proclaiming his favourite 100 gadgets. Lo and behold he starts talking about GPS's, and how they sometimes go wrong. Up pops a Blighty road sign that reads "Crackpot - 2 miles"

Really farking weird.

Thanks for the inspiration Yoozy :D Got out over to Dales today, great ride out just me ant Misis. Managed a 200 mile round trip on mostly dry roads till we got back over Belmont where it rained a bit. Saw an Orange SMT in Hawes but didn't meet the owner so don't know if it was a forum member. Oh the clocks have misted up again but haven't stopped workin yet :(
