North East & Yorkshire Area Proudly Presents

The Yorkshire Wolds Millington Circular

Image

Location - Near Pocklington in the Yorkshire Wolds

Distance - 23 miles

Difficulty Rating - 4/5 (No recce completed rating provided by route guide)

Meeting Point - Great Givendale

Post Code - YO42 1TT

Grid Ref - SE 811 538

Time :: 10am for a 10:30 start

Car Parking - Verges at the side of a quiet country lane

Terrain - Singletrack, double track and quiet country lanes

Image

We will be stopping at the Gait Inn in Millington for a late lunch as unfortunately we won't reach Millington until nearly 2/3rds distance but I have made enquiries and due to a local festival the pub will be open for food all day and is more than happy to serve a group of mud covered mountain bikers. Please bring snacks etc to keep you going until we reach the pub.
The route is known for having some very muddy areas in winter and although it is now supposed to be summer I would expect due to the recent rainfall that we should prepare for the worst.
Finally this is going to be a proper old school adventure as it has not been previously ridden by any of us locals and we will be navigating with a good old fashioned map!

Yes I'm sure the 4/5 is more a mud thing than outright difficulty.
There won't be anything technical but there is 2300 odd feet of typical wolds climbing which is usual short and sharp.
