York Rouleurs Cycling Club Fish ‘n’ Chip Ride 2016
Come and join us for the 2016 Bridlington Fish ‘n’ Chip run on Saturday 4th June 2016!
2015 saw the birth of a classic club tradition in the making – a trip to the seaside for fish and chips on the front. Come and join us for a summer day’s riding through some of East Yorkshire’s best scenery on one of the longest days of year.
Reprising last year’s route we start at Constantine’s statue at the Minster at 7.30am and head for the picturesque road which rises through Millington Dale and Thixendale, along to our founder’s namesake village Butterwick. There, after suitably reverential social media opportunities, we swing northwards close by Wharram Percy, the deserted medieval village on the western edge of the chalk Wolds then east towards Flamborough and its famous lighthouses on the headland with its sheer white cliffs. After that it is a gleeful descent into Bridlington and the siren call of a well-earned lunch on the sea front.
The return leg takes us past the magnificent Elizabethan manor house at Burton Agnes, down through Watton where William de Malton, the 13th century master-mason who built Beverley Minster is buried, and as quickly as we can manage through the unremarkable Middleton on the Wolds before refuelling in Pocklington. Then it’s onwards onto familiar roads to be back in York in time for tea.
At 114 miles (184 km) and 3,000ft climbing it is a cracking day out at the very start of summer. Come and join us.
Sundays ride is our 100th ride for members only. A special 100km ride leaving East from Cycle Heaven through Elvington, Sutton Upon Derwent, Melbourne, Allerthorpe, Pocklington with a rest at Millington after a loop up and round Huggate. Then heading North through Givendale over Garrowby hill. West down in to Painsthorpe and Kirby Underdale, Bugthorpe, Howsham. Then the home stretch South West through Sand Hutton, Murton and Heslington.
Sundays ride is a modified ride from Iain. We go through York past the Minster, then East through Stockton on the Forest, Upper Helmsley, Buttercrambe, Bugthorpe and Kirby Underdale. Climbing from there up to Garrowby and descending South through Great Givendale, West out of Pocklington through Spittal to Stamford Bridge. Back in to York via Holtby and Osbaldwick. Stopping at a cafe for coffee & cake afterwards.
