It was great to see 51 riders set off from the Blacksmiths Arms on a bright but very cold day. Jeff Barber had planned an excellent course but he needed the assistance of his daughters Amelia & Laura to manage the start and finish. Congratulations to the category winners. Hopefully, they will post their routes but here is mine. 2 26 20 6 14 27 16 21 17 25 13 22 8 18 12 11 5 29 10 15 I was happy with my route until I realised at Monk Fryston that there wasn’t a way back to Biggin without going through Thorpe Willoughby which meant that I was relieved to finish only 20 minutes late. Still a cracking day out. Hopefully we’ll see as many riders at Sicklinghall next month.
