so, it is a familiar route, great.

although i gather there have been changes to it, still something ridable.

i will pay attention to the words this time(i'm one of those that goes straight to the cartoons in the daily tabloid) and see what is written about it. contains local interest, historic features and train details for all the routes in the book.

cheers. :)

'known' might be pushing it a bit far.... 'know-of and can guess what it might be doing' might be a better way to put it.

right ken i've decided to destroy your water fed pole and give you a triple ladder instead, need to get you fit :wink: :)

irony is...that could be one-way! as the start-finish is not really specified. this book doesn't get round to explaining whether the route is..loop/out-and-back/go to hell..etc.. :lol:

one major benefit is that any 'suggested' ride can be modified as you see fit. jump on it halfway, for example. i've spotted one route further over towards the west that has my attention. selby sort of area. can't get more central than that!*


*for east/west/south yorks
