Two different destinations are planned this weekend. One group will take a fairly direct route to the nearer cafe, around 35-50 miles ridden at around 12-14mph. Another group will go a bit further afield with a route of around 50-70 miles at 14-16mph. If there is a sufficient turnout (likely not so close to Christmas) a third group may form going to the further cafe at a slightly faster (16-18mph) pace.
Heading north, these rides will be mostly flat.
Shorter ride: Thorpe Arch (Seedlings)
Longer ride: Whixley (Tancred, or The Courtyard Cafe on the A168 near Arkendale)
N.B. Finish times are not guaranteed and depend on the speed/distance/stops on the day.
