castle howard :) :wink: 8)

just 3 food stops will do, a new, less greedy man you will see beyond new year. :wink: :lol: some NW joint venture is always a laugh too, the benny rothman ride was the 'daddy', challenging and rather pretty round there.

I'll have a study of the maps around Ilkley moor if you want, it;s relatively local to me, I've sort of half got a route on the other side of the valley but it's not been dry enough this year to reccy it.

Got a couple in mind on the other side of Malham but not good for public transport users. Although if someone needs picking up from the station etc then its doable. :D

There's a ride around the forest of Bowland, a couple of miles from Gisburn in Dunsop Bridge.
Technically its on the Yorkshire/Lancashire boarder so could do a joint ride, its about 19miles.

Ben's Castle Howard ride will be recced over winter and on paper looks to be a great ride.

South Yorks really needs a spot on the calendar so myself and Ben are near enough to help Trebz out with some recces and any fine tuning his planned routes may need.

Missed loads this year with setting up a business but should be around more next year

Know loads of stuff within a 40 mile radius of Pickering/Malton

So where do we start...

Castle Howard/Welburn/Terrington works well before the nettles grow in and after the sticky mud from hell has gone

Rosedale/Lastingham always good and can be tuned to the weather

Goathland/Hole of Horcum good when it's frozen or dry in summer

Sutton Bank/Wass several options and good most weathers, Boltby is a bit of a nightmare due to felling but options without using the wood too much

Wykham/Harwood dale good before the vegitation grows in

That should keep you busy for a while :)
