small ride

After ten minutes out with Danny the Collie at 7.30 I had decided that today wasn’t good for a ride but when I phoned Frank to say I wasn’t coming, he persuaded me by arranging to meet me on Rudgate. At the rendezvous I wasn’t too surprised to see Frank on his own- it’s not the first time after all. Because there were just two of us I’ll keep it brief. OK?
Cattal- Whixley- B’bridge Road past Little Ouseburn- left towards Marton -cum -Grafton ,Arkendale, Ferrensby, K’bro and home . That’s about it except for two highlights. Good coffee and cake in the pleasant surroundings of Knaresborough riverside and then the gentle breeze which had slowed us almost to a standstill on the way out was now right behind us ,so we were home in record time, laughing all the way.
