Where were you all missing the fine cycling weather (not really)?. With the ride start put back to 11.30am, 5 of us set off on the pre-planned 30ml route picking up Gary on the way through Embsay. Black Park climb never gets any easier even with a forceful tail wind. Blustery conditions to Appletreewick and Grassington where sausage sarnies were the most popular choice at the Eco Cafe. As the taxi home didn’t arrive (joke), we had to continue cycling to Conistone, Threshfield, Hetton, Gargrave, Broughton and back. Avoiding inches of surface water and staying upright during the sudden gusts of wind were the main points of interest. BUT, at least we got out and enjoyed coffee and cake at the clubhouse.
