Welcome to the first North East, North & West Yorkshire Area gathering of the year, were off to Robin Hoods Bay for fish & chips.
The route from Cloughton is along part of the old East Coast railway so an easy ride to Robin Hoods Bay.
Some parts of this ride are very exposed, so please bring appropriate clothing.
Also some money for a fish & chips lunch and a camera to capture the beautiful Yorkshire coastline

This ride takes in some interesting local history including the holiday resort that was never finished, then the destination Robin Hoods Bay full of ship wrecks & smugglers. Here's a link to some of the Bays history http://www.holidaycottagerobinhoodsbay. ... hoods-bay/

I've been asked to drive up, so I guess that means I'm in. Said person now needs to check he's not working as we've just realised it being Saturday.
