Finalised ride-out route for the afternoon  :123A:
Sat-nav files will be issued shortly once I have translated Geoff's Red/White rose accent text :notsure:

OK.  So we are fed and watered in Leyburn, after what we all hope was a spectacular morning session.

And the afternoon ride will look like this.  We leave Leyburn via the A6108 Richmond road. After 1.7 miles in Bellerby we T/L onto Moor rd, after 2.4 miles we TL onto unclassified rd.

After 3.4 miles we TR  at X roads onto Whiperrdale bank, this turn is signposted Grinton/ Reeth. There is a huge M.O.D. shooting range on the RH side.

At 8.6 miles we go L onto the B6270 Swale hall lane, and through Reeth village. Out of village still on B6270.  We are then in SWALEDALE.

Continue though villages of Healaugh, - Low row.- Strands.- Gunnerside.- and Muker.

At 19.7 miles, we TL  Signposted Hawes, onto the beginning of the spectacular Buttertubs pass. We will take a leg stretch break, and take a look at the 20 mtr deep holes in the limestone. The holes were used by Swaledale farmers, who in the days of horse and cart, had an overnight break, and lowered their cheese/butter and other dairy products down the Buttertubs, so that in the cooler conditions down there, it would keep produce fresh, until the following morning, and the final push to market in Hawes.

On the way down Buttertubs, we will pass Simonstone Hall. Which is still basking in the publicity, as being the hotel where Jeremy Clarkson had a fight with one of his crew. And consequently left the long running show.

At 25.3 miles TR onto A684 signposted Sedbergh. We soon pass through Hardraw, behind which is situated England's highest single drop waterfall. Unfortunately, due to lack of parking, and the fact that is is a fair hike to the falls, we will continue onward.

At 26.4 stay on A684 signposted Sedbergh. After some fantastic UP and DOWN  tomfoolery, we arrive in Sedbergh.

So at 40.4 miles we TL on A 684 signposted Kendal.

At 40.7 miles we TL at mini roundabout, which is signposted Dent/Dentdale

At 40.9 miles follow Dent sign straight on.

At 45.6 miles TR signposted Gawthrop / Barbon.

At 45.8 miles TL at tiny Haycote bridge, and on to Stone Rigg Outrake to Barbon. This is BARBONDALE. Another UP and DOWN bundle of fun.

At 51.6 miles TL at the war memorial in Barbon

At 53 miles TL at A 683 to Casterton.

At 54.6 miles we will have a break at the famous biking stop known as "Devils bridge", ( T- shirts are available, so you can show off to your friends), at Kirkby Lonsdale. After we have fed and watered ourselves, we leave the "Bridge" , via the L turn onto the A65 signposted Ingleton.

At 60.6 miles TL in Ingleton onto B6255 signposted Hawes. This road is an utter peach, and could have been built with having fun on a motorbike as it's primery function. However it is also a favorite spot where the police use a mobile speed camera van. This is situated just beyond the entrance to White scar caves. If on the day it is in operation, I will slow the whole group down. So don't be wondering , " what the hell is he doing". Also, this same road has lots of blind crests, so take care.

We will then arrive back at one of the way points from the morning run, Ribblehead viaduct. The route back to Hawes from here, is well worth doing in reverse of the morning outbound trip. Simply because it is just a spectacular kaleidoscope of motorcycling joy.

At 77.5 miles we arrive back in Hawes. And I am pretty certain that you will all have had a great day, and will all be wearing ear to ear smiles .  Enjoy.   Geoff.

I lived in Leyburn for a couple of years and know those roads very well, the combination of Geoff's leadership and stunning scenery will ensure that you will have a ride out to beat all ride out's  :028:

I can't see how to download the file. Is it restricted to members of that forum by any chance?
