Full mudguards are now required to ride with the club through Winter. We’re riding anti clockwise to the South East of York. The number of Groups, will depend on the number of people riding.
We head out over the Millennium bridge to Bishopthorpe and South on the Planets track. Carefully over the A19 to Escrick and bear left at Skipwith to North Duffield. Briefly on the A163 East then head North at Bubwith up to Sutton on Derwent. West from there to Elvington, down to Wheldrake then back over the A19 and up the Bike track over the river and off it to Middlethorpe and back to the start.
There will be an optional cafe stop on return to Cycle Heaven.
We’re riding anti clockwise to the South East of York. Some members rode a similar route recently and seems the best direction to avoid 2 large sportives taking place, plus the bonus of a tailwind home. The number of Groups we split in to will depend on the number of people riding, there could be the option of a shorter or longer route too. Leaving South on the A19 briefly, taking a right turn to Naburn. East from there to Crockey Hill taking care at the A19 junction. Quieter roads again to Wheldrake, turning South for Thorganby, Skipwith, North Duffield, Bubwith. The longer route carries on South to Breighton and Wressle looping back North joining the route again to East Cottingwith. Still North with the wind behind to Sutton Upon Derwent, Elvington. Turning West back in to York taking care at the roundabout over the A64 through Heslington. There will be an optional cafe stop at Cycle Heaven.
Unable to upload a more detailed map or GPX file due to an ongoing technical issue with the host.
We’re heading East on the ride this Sunday. Leaving from Tesco in at least 2 groups on the Planets path beyond Naburn. Then by road to towards Deighton and briefly on the A19 to Escrick. South East through Skipwith then North Duffield and on the A163 to Bubwith. A left turn for much quieter roads North through Laytham and Melbourne. Over a bridge to Thornton then taking care over the A1079 towards Fangfoss and back South East in to Wilberfoss. Back over the main road passing Newton Upon Derwent to Sutton Upon Derwent. Going through Elvington and watching for potholes etc all the way back in to York joining Hull Road. Passing the University back in to Fulford, for an optional Cafe visit for coffee and cake.
