Settle - 14th February 2016

Waking up to a cold clear February morning, three riders started out from Higherford, picking up an additional seven at Gisburn for a leisurely ride through Wigglesworth and Rathmell to an early lunch in Settle.

Initially disappointed to find our usual cafe stop in Settle was closed, we had to find an alternative establishment. Just across the road, the Singing Kettle did us proud.

After lunch, the group split in two, with one half returning, whilst the others, wanting to make the most of the sunshine, headed further north through Giggleswick and Little Stainforth towards Helwith Bridge before starting the return journey via Austwick, Rome and Wham.


It would have been a shame to spoil the day by not having a second cafe stop, so we made the Old Vicarage Tea Rooms at Tosside our next port of call. Home made scones and banana splits being the favourites of the day, and well deserved they were too!.

Finally we made our way back to Gisburn via Bolton-by-Bowland, just as the light was beginning to fade. What an excellent days riding.
