bugger. i know you want to get some mileage on the bike too.

apart from the odd shower here and there the weather looks descent enough for a cruise round east yorks.

Count me in as provisional... Should be OK, do we think the climbing will be vicious?

No the climbs are not bad, well any that are are on foot anyway.
Quite an easy ride really

I thought that I should check out the pub again last Sunday and it turns out that they may not have hot food available, I need to ring them with numbers at the start of the ride and the landlord is going to to try and sort us some sandwiches etc out.

Please bring snacks with you to keep you going as there are no shops at all until we reach the pub which is in the final 3/4 of the ride.
