They call Yorkshire God’s own Country and this trde really reminded us all of why. It really has everything.
Today we started off in the picturesque town on Pocklington, after talking a long walk around the centre. Lots of small businesses and the sort of market town that has disappeared in much of Britain.
The ride took us through Yorkshire Wolds (hill’s with woodland and open country) and hardly any traffic.
Lunch at the Crosskeys in Driffield and really looked after by Lee the very kind landlord who made a donation to our fund. Thanks Lee.
Then on to the beautiful Burton Agnes stately home for tea and ice cream.
Richard Bircher joined us for this ride and his company is always great.
And finally down to the North Beach at Bridlington, toes in the sea, a photo shoot of course and then to the bar of the Ransdale for a celebratory drink.
Ricard Jacobs took Richard Bircher back to Pocklington to collect his vehicle and drive up to Durham during the evening.
While it was exhilarating to finish the ride successfully there was more than a little sadness that it is over. A tough challenge on a wonderful route and we would recommend it to everyone.
We reached our target which is even more satisfying.
Thank you to all our sponsors.
