I'm up for this if my bike gets on the road in time. Any date really

OKIDOKEY. Looks like the 23rd September is most favourable, so the next task: the route.

I'd like the ride to take place between biker honeypots

The list so far (and I haven't thought very hard about this bit, so just off the top of my head):

  • Squires Cafe, Sherburn-in-Elmet (not sure if it's worth including this one, messes up the ride a bit really)
  • The Sun Inn, Norwood, Harrogate
  • Pateley Bridge
  • The Manor Cafe, Leyburn
  • Hawes
  • Devil's Bridge, Kirkby Lonsdale

Can we think of any more? Just hope the weather is kind to us, a nice busy Sunday would be ideal.

23rd September, it should be comfortably past the 600mile service by then so I should be ok for this.

It's Nidderdale Show in Pateley Bridge on Mon 24th so you may be struggling to find anywhere to park. The showfield will be shut and the big car-park will have the fair on it.

If you skip Pateley and Squires, it's a nice ride from The Sun Inn over to Helmsley, via Ripon, Thirsk and Sutton Bank.

Helmsley market place is usually busy with bikes and day trippers. From there you could fire 'em up the fantastic B1257 to Stokesely and on to Leyburn.

Cheers for the heads up on Pateley Clanger. Squires is out really, too out of the way anyway. Not actually been to Helmsley but if it's as you say then definitely could be worth a punt.

Puny, are you saying you want everyone to ride in dresses?

The 6 places measured earlier aren't too far from achievable in a single ride - GMaps makes it about 110 miles (http://goo.gl/maps/X019q - not refined in any way). Helmsley is a bit off the beaten track though.

For the amusement value though, I will volunteer to ride with inflated space-hoppers on the pannier rails - they're high enough up there that they shouldn't touch down in even the most enthusiastic cornering.

I too thought it was doable if Squires were to be included, will have a see.

And re: spacehoppers, well volunteered Ollie, I'm sure they will make superb crash bungs if needed, you will be safe as houses And talk about high vis!

I'm gonna try to come to this. High time I saw you lot again! Only weekend not good is 22/23rd as I have a wedding (may be doable though, wedding is in Knaresborough) to go to. Hope this all works out and raises loads of cash.
