Ravensworth 16 March 2016
Nine riders met in Ravensworth and were able to enjoy a very pleasant ride with some almost dry but dirty lanes. The route took us through to Smallways where we crossed over the A66 then onwards to Whorlton. Across the A67 and a series of very nice, quiet roads via Little Newsham and Langton brought us to Piercebridge where we lunched at Sam Turners.
A short section of the busy Roman Road followed before we turned off to Manfield and Cleasby and then a short, sharp uphill led to Barton and a bit of a grind through to Melsonby.
Homeward bound now up to the A66, down to Gilling West and lastly the back lanes through Hartforth to finish in Ravensworth just short of the advertised 36 miles.
Thanks to all who turned out,
