Mudguards are now required to ride with the club. We’re riding clockwise to the North of York. Heading in to Town and out on Haxby Road. Passing through New Earswick and Strensall. West to Stillington, then back East through Marton in the Forest, Farlington, Sheriff Hutton and in to Sittenham. South from there to Flaxton, Towthorpe and Earswick. The exact route to the finish could change on the day depending on traffic and weather conditions, ending back for an optional cafe stop at Cycle Heaven.
Sundays ride is a shortened version of the Heart of York ride we have ridden before. We head out of York North through Haxby and then quieter roads out to Flaxton and Thornton Le Clay, followed by a climb at Bulmer Bank. We will regroup at the top. Then out to Coneyshorpe and a left turn West climbing towards Terrington. A left turn heading South for a quick downhill section towards Sheriff Hutton and back in to York via Strensall. Stopping at a cafe for coffee & cake afterwards.
Sundays ride looks warmer than last week. Could be a damp start. We head East out of York over the Millennium bridge, through Osbaldwick, Murton, Warthill. Then North through Upper Helmsley, Sand Hutton, Bossall, Haton, Barton le Willows and Barton Hill. A left turn West through Foston, Thornton Le Clay and West Lilling. Back South through Strensall, Towthorpe, Earswick and Huntington. An optional stop at a cafe for coffee & cake afterwards.
