Ride For Cake Productions are proud to present


THE HOLE OF HORCUM



Image


So who fancies a bimble round the North Yorkshire Moors in the never ending search for CAKE.

Stunning views, Steam trains, Secret RAF listening base's and a great big Hole!! This ride has it all and more.


Image


The ride will start in the lay by (parking £2 per day) above the Hole of Horcum, on the A169 Pickering to Whitby road.
There are no facilities there so make sure you have all you need. The ride will take use over some remote parts of the moors, so make sure you have a snack or three and pack a mac (it may rain).

We will take-in part of last years main BDW ride, so if you were there you will know the quality of the singletrack.
Unfortunately we don't get to the cake shop until were 2/3rd's of the way round, but with cake comes steam trains as the cake stop is Levasham station.
You will get chance to stand on the platform and watch as the majestic old steam train pulls away.


Image


After lashings of cake and pop we set off on the final stretch and stretch you tendons it will.
Theres no nice way to put this its a steep hill and with a belly full of cake it will hurt (sorry if Ive put anyone off)

It was the biggest none secret base the yanks used to have, I think they didn't notice that the A169 ran past the front gates :lol: Its a listening post from the cold war and I think they may have had some missiles there as there was always a Peace protesters there.
Its so secret in was featured in heartbeat :lol:

Ps shame you can't make it, would have been good to see you again, maybe catch up with you at Drumlanrig 8)
