John Ds 'it's not all about the bike' Rides Sunday 5 and Sunday 19

August 14th, 2018

John D’s ride to Hunmanby on Sunday 19th August has two starting points.
1) From the usual Cottingham Green meeting place at 0900 and cycling straight to Driffield, car parking at riverhead Go overthe rlyway xing , turn r big space beside the canal after the warehouses. Aim to get there as near as possible to 1030. If riding from Cottingham please ring John on the day to confirm.

2) for car drivers. Park at Driifield Canal Head for a 1030 start or when the CG starters get there if later.
It is also possible to get to Driffield by train. Officially the train can take two bikes but three at a pinch I would have thought. It's cheaper to get a return ticket rather than two singles and cheaper still if two are travelling to get a 'Duo' ticket.
There are no cafes on the way to Hunmanby so it would be advisable to take an energy bar or cake to eat at a morning stop. There is a cafe and pub in Hunmanby for lunch.
Any further questions I can be contacted on 01482 865179 or on the day 07928 346 626

Tom Tom's Roundabout Ride Pics Sunday 22/07/18

July 23rd, 2018

Great day for a ride 2 groups setting off from Cottingham Green 12 in the faster Group up through Skidby and Little Weighton the fields look ready for harvesting already. Came to the top of Beverley Clump and decided to do Brantingham Dale with one motorist deciding to pass two of us on the steep section. Soon into the Garden Centre at Ellerker and coffee and tea cakes on the patio. Dudley looked forlorn at having to return because of another appointment but soon down Mill hill and through Ellerker picked up Tracey and soon through Broomfleet decision time for some taking the track and the route through the Tileworks.
Didn’t quite synchronise at Faxfleet so through Blackfoft and past the help yourself cafe for church funds and on through the quaint villages of Yokefleet Laxton and Kilpin met Duane on his way back and soon into California Gardens Howden for lunch which was surprisingly quiet. Commiserated with visitors from Barnsley on their relegation from the Championship.
Soon back out on the old A63 and through Eastrington and Sandholme and Newport back wind to North Cave and the back way through Nordham to Hotham Park and Newbald. The bushy hill route seemed most inviting and Middle Howe Lane Walkington and Little Weighton disappeared under our wheels to enjoy refreshing beer in the Half Moon with short journey and 55 miles since settling out.

Thanks be to Long Tom.
