Osmotherley Weekend 2012

Friday 8th to Sunday 10th July saw 8 members head to Osmotherly for the weekend. A variety of accommodation was used including the youth hostel, bed & breakfast and the caravan site. Unfortunatley a further two members had to cancel at the last minute due to a medical problem.

Richard Armstrong was the only one to ride from home, making it a long weekend, while Ian was the only one to go out for a cycle ride after arriving at Osmotherly on the Friday.

Saturday morning we set off over the moors, dodging the odd shower, to Hawnby where we had lunch. The party then split, with some going to Revaulx Abbey and 4 of us crossing the A19 through Borrowby and the lanes back to Osmotherly, only to get rather damp due to a heavy thunder storm and hailstones.

After getting dry we had a super meal at the Golden Lion in the village and sampled the real ales.

Sunday morning, with the sun shining on us, we set off over towards Teeside ridingthrough the lovely villages of Swainby, Potto, and Carlton in Cleveland to Ingleby Greenhow for lunch, arriving just before the rain. After lunch in the local pub, we then had to shleter until the rain passed, we eventually set off via the village of Great Broughton, when the sun came outagain, and through the town of Stokesley on to Rudby, Crathorn, West Rounton and back to Osmotherly, a ride of approximately 45 miles.
