Trebz and Nige go Urban in Hull.

Start point, Willerby Square, down Kingston Road, Spring Bank to old town.

Over the A63 to the river bank and a pint at 'Green Bricks'.

Swiftly followed by fish and chips at the legendary Bob Carvers.

Then over to the river bank again, over the walk way where the old dock fish houses sit.

Then home via Gypsyville, Peter Pan park, Anlaby Common and Kirkella.

Brilliant ride taking in our old stomping ground.

NICE ONE!

thinking back, there is loads of interesting stuff in old town hull, near the river. behind the road with 'king william' statue, near the court house you could walk down past a really old irish pub then, to a public park thing with a fish pond. cobbled streets and ancient buildings, good stuff. all i just mentioned back onto that timber walkway. you can see right along to the 'deep' and the rotating bridge. always seemed to be a bright sunrise too.

cheers.

Peter Pan Cafe in Costello/PeterPan Park is where the Ladies&Kids Sky ride runs from.

Hull's marvellous, it's exactly like nowhere else. It feels more like a city-state than somewhere in Britain, I think it's the combination of white telephone boxes, policemen in spiked helmets and the clock on the guildhall that chimes a carillon rather than just ordinary bells. When I bought my house my solicitor was in an office in "Land of green ginger street". You can't beat a pint in Ye Olde Black Boy or the Minverva either.

Ben and I were discussing winter rides yesterday and thought we would pop the Hull to Hornsea rail trail in as a ride one month over the winter.

I've never done the Hornsea trail, so I'd definitely like to do that, time permitting.

Most of those names were a bit before my time, heard great things about Trog Bar from older mates. LA's and Waterfront (before the renovation) where my regular haunts.
