Wetherby – Risplith, Sunday 27th August 2023, 51 miles

Four members met at the Shambles at 9:00 a.m. where all agreed that due to the poor weather forecast, a shorter ride to Risplith was preferable to the carded ride to Pateley Bridge.

Nick, Pete D, Greg and myself (Bill) were present. The heavy rain started just after we had reached Markington and we took shelter under a tree while we put on our waterproofs.

Refreshment was taken at G & T’s Ice Cream cafe at Risplith after which we returned home via Ripon, Boroughbridge and the Dunforths. After saying goodbye to Nick at Tockwith we were thoroughly drenched by another heavy downpour on our way home.

A very soggy day out but probably better than sitting on the couch.
