Once upon a sunny day, our super cool cycling club got ready for an amazing ride! Steve B, Pete C, Bill, Neil, Kathy, Gavin, and Keith were all geared up and excited to hit the road. We planned to cover a total distance of 76 miles, starting from Boston Spa and going through Wetherby, Scriven, Ripon racecourse, Sharow, Bedale, Wath, Boroughbridge, and back to Wetherby. Our ride was filled with fun, laughter, and of course, a delicious lunch at the Tandem Cafe in Bedale. So, let’s jump right into this awesome ride report!

Riders:

Our riding group was made up of the coolest gang of riders. We had Steve B, Pete C, Bill, Neil, Kathy, Gavin, and Keith. Each rider brought their own unique style and skills to the group. We all loved cycling, and we were thrilled to be riding together on this fantastic adventure.

Route:

Our adventure started in Boston Spa, where we said our hellos and hit the road. We pedalled through Wetherby, enjoying the cool breeze and the beautiful views along the way. Next up was Scriven, a lovely place with pretty houses and friendly folks. We waved as we rode past, feeling the excitement building up.

After Scriven, we reached Ripon racecourse. It was a big open space with a cool track where people raced their horses. We didn’t race horses, of course, but we sure raced on our bikes! We had so much fun zooming around the track, feeling like real champions.

From Ripon racecourse, we rode through Sharow, which was like a tiny village straight out of a storybook. The houses had cute little gardens, and the smell of flowers filled the air. It felt magical!

As we continued our journey, our tummies started growling, telling us it was time for lunch. Hooray! We arrived at the Tandem Cafe in Bedale, where the friendly staff welcomed us with big smiles. The cafe smelled amazing, and we couldn’t wait to fill our bellies. We had sandwiches, salads, and the most scrumptious homemade cakes. Yum! It was the perfect spot to rest, refuel, and have a good chat with our cycling buddies.

Incidents:

During our ride back home, Gavin had a bit of bad luck. His front brake suddenly stopped working. Oh no! But Gavin didn’t panic, and neither did we. We all gathered around to help him fix the problem. With a little tinkering and teamwork, we managed to get Gavin’s brake working again. Phew! Crisis averted!

We also had a couple of friends leave us along the way. Kathy said goodbye at Boroughbridge, and Steve and Bill left us at Wetherby. We waved them off with big smiles, knowing that we had shared a fantastic ride together.

Conclusion:

As we rolled back into Boston Spa, we couldn’t help but feel a sense of accomplishment and happiness. Our cycling club ride was a huge success! We covered a total distance of 76 miles, explored amazing places like Wetherby, Scriven, Ripon racecourse, Sharow, Bedale, Wath, Boroughbridge, and Wetherby. We even had a yummy lunch at the Tandem Cafe in Bedale.
