Moortown Co-op

Long Ride to Tockwith

We will meet up with other cyclists in the village hall in Tockwith (22 miles) where a good lunch is provided at reasonable cost.  Then there is the choice of going to the carol service for cyclists in the village church or heading home.  Flat ride.

Long Ride to Pateley Bridge

Fairly flat first half except going down Weardley, stopping at Miller's Cafe in Starbeck (17 miles). Then through Ripley, Burnt Yates and Glasshouses to the Teacups Tearooms in Pateley Bridge (32 miles) for lunch --- NB cash only---. Then the long unforgiving Greenhow Hill that levels out a few times only to kick back up again. Nice romp down to Blubberhouses then hilly again going to Otley. 

Intermediate Ride to Wetherby

Out via Eccup Reservoir, down to Harewood Bridge, then Kirby Overblow, Follifoot, and Spofforth where we take the Wetherby Railway Track into Wetherby. Choice of cafes in Wetherby. 

Then continuing on the railway track towards the Thorpe Arch Trading Estate and returning via Thorpe Arch, Boston Spa, Bramham, Scarcroft and Slaid Hill.

The track has a generally good firm surface.
