The North East, North and West Yorkshire area Proudly Presents

Kaya's Kildale Cake Run

.
Image


Start :: Pinchinthorpe Visitors Center


Post Code :: TS14 8HD


Time :: 10am for a 10:30 start


Distance :: 15ish Miles


Terrain:: Single track, Double track and quite country lanes


Difficulty Rating:: 3/5



Image



This is my "local loop" to one of my favourite cake shops in the area, its a typical Yorkshire tea room that also sells beer.

Those that have been on this ride know it has a few steep hills but the rewards are well worth the effort, with fantastic vistas and some fun trails.

Here's last years (2012) aftermath..... viewtopic.php?t=190259

And the year before's (2011) aftermath...... viewtopic.php?t=141875


There are toilets and a café on site at Pinchinthorpe visitors centre, also so a small parking charge of £1 (I Think)

Here's a link to the start point :- http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=TS14+8H ... ngdom&z=18

I think it's a no from me this year, what with being the Queen Birthday and all that.

Actually because I'll not get a pass to ride two days in a row. :(

I plan to be riding a BMBO around Cropton, orienteering on a bike. I've missed 3 of the past one in places near me as thongs have come up.

Of course I'm not ruling it out as it's a great ride certainly a ride anyone wanting to get out and try a bit of retrobiking should try and get to :-)

If you can't make the cake run, then good luck with the BMBO :wink:
