Date: 17/09/2017 | Time: 9am | Distance: 36.5 / 42.2 mi | Elevation Gain: 849 / 1074ft | Ride Type: Road

We’re riding clockwise to the North West of York. The number of Groups, will depend on the number of people riding. There could be the option of a shorter or longer route too.

Negotiating some back roads to get out to Acomb, carefully over the Bypass to Rufforth and Long Marston. Quieter roads from there to Tockwith and turning in to the wind for Cattal. Crossing the A59 with care for the gentle climb to Whixley. Small section on the B6265 where the routes split. Shorter route takes the turn after our usual one for Great Ouseburn. The longer route climbs up to Marton then round to Lower and Upper Dunsforth to re-join at Great Ouseburn. Both routes go over Aldwark Toll Bridge, up to Aldwark then looping round South through Tollerton for the newish road surface and the wind pushing us back home. Usual section through Overton, then wind assisted down the A19 again in to Bootham.

There will be an optional cafe stop at Cycle Heaven.

We’re riding clockwise to the North West of York. Heading out on the B1224 to Rufforth, then possibly a right turn through Long Marston and Tockwith if the road is open. Otherwise as per the route, keep going to Bickerton then right towards Tockwith and Cattal. Across the A59 carefully, for a brief climb to Whixley then a section on a main road turning left for much quieter roads through Marton-cum-Grafton, Aldborough, Lower Dunsforth and Upper Dunsforth. Over the Toll bridge to Linton on Ouse then Newton on Ouse through Beningborough Hall with a possible stop for Ice Cream. Back in to York through Overton ending with an optional cafe stop at Cycle Heaven.
