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.
With many club members going to watch the Tour de Yorkshire, on Sunday 1st May, there will be no “open” ride this Sunday. Instead, there will be a members only ride out to Sutton Bank to watch the race. Interested YRCC members can find details of where and when on the forum at http://yorkrouleurs.boards.net/
