Woooosh I managed to get out !!!!!!!!

Well I would not have believed it, after it rained all night at home, we (Ashley & Me) managed to get out today and got wet only by the Spray from other cars on route.
Left home at 8.30am ish tank up then headed off to Squires Cafe again Via Selby.
I had not actually planned a lot of miles as I was supposed to be playing a round of Golf at 1pm with some mates but upon getting to Squires looked at my mobile to see a few missed calls (the Golf was cancelled) that's a shame coz then I had to spend all day on the Bike YAHOO...
So unleashed to the roads we set off for Kirkby Lonsdale again, but this time we went up the M1/A1(M) to Boroughbridge, The City Of Ripon & then along the back roads to Leynburn. Picked up the A684 (not the best road in the UK) for Hawes, stopped for some pic's the in to Sedburgh before the Dark Clouds caught up with us.
Once we got to Devils Bridge @ K'Lonsdale, just ordered a cuppa & the rain came, sheltered from the rain with the Bike and took some more pic's some of a Biker Group called 'Satans Slaves' England' make of that what u like.
The Sky still looked a bit Iffy so we decided to make a Dash for the A65 back East passing Skipton,Ilkley,Otley then back on the A1(M) at Wetherby to make a Dash for the Hein Gericke shop in Doncaster before they closed at 4pm, arrived just in the Nick of time to purchase my new Leather Trousers that I had ordered last week, O yes they fit & handed over the C/Card and then off home 234 miles approx today.
Roll on next Sunday, Me & my eldest son Gareth are going down to The Ace Cafe in that there London weather permitting.
Today's route can be seen at the bottom of this post.....

  1. Looks like a good run....who needs golf any way when you have a bike! SO Does Ashley ride, or just pillion?

  2. Devil's bridge looks very scary, especially with the ice truck in the front. Put a clown in the picture, and you can put together a true horror story. Nice outing, and obviously you don't mind the weather.

  3. Thx for the comments.
    Ashley is Pillion, at the moment anyway..
