Hawes Weekend - July 2015

We spent the weekend of 24th to 26th July cycling around the Yorkshire Dales from our base in Hawes.

On Friday we rode over to Sedburgh via Appersett, Garsdale Head, where we took a break for lunch.

Whilst there we met an old member by the name of Derek Silverwood, he'd ridden over from Rimington that morning, and had stopped there for his sandwiches before heading back. He seemed to know most of the long term club members?

After lunch we made the return trip passing through Millthrop, Rash, Gawthrop and Dent, mainly following the River Dee before dropping back into Hawes where we visited the local Chippy for Tea.

On Saturday we were joined by several more riders, and we made the controversial decision to tackly Buttertubs (King of the Mountains: Stage 1: 2014 Tour de France). Heading up through Thwaite, Angram, Keld on our way to Kirkby Stephen for lunch.

Taking a more relaxing ride back to Hawes, through Outhgill and Aisgill, before relaxing for the evening in the local pub where we had an excellent meal.
