My day out on unknown highways........................in God's Country

Slight change of plan.....................I was going to a Trial this morning, but when I called about it ................it was a Championship Cup Trial, for expert classes

Oh well hey-ho...............I decided to do some trails in the Yorkshire Dales because the weather was stunning

I set off towards Masham and did this trail near Nosterfield - marked as a road with it's own roadsign - but it's a road to nowhere





No fuel @ Masham:( - mysteriously closed garage, never mind there will be some @ Leyburn

This trail is on the bends, just after Masham - except no-one knows it's there:





Next green lane is high above Ellingstring and on Colsterdale Moor, near Slipstone Crag..................lovely views









Leyburn for fuel and then this cheeky little gnarly trail, just off the Market Place..............again unknown to many and a bit hairy in places





Then onwards towards West Witton and then climb up towards Carlton and then run along the lane towards West Burton, splendid views of Wensleydale









Then on towards Grassington for lunch at the BMW Bring & Buy @ Cracoe - saw a pretty shepherdess on a Quad on the way - Little Bo Peep



Plenty of BMW bargains to be had, but none that I could carry - good food of pie and peas and mug of tea for 2 and a general natter.

So................onwards and upwards

Great views of Wharfedale near Kilnsey





Back up to Cray and then over Stalling Busk to Stake allotments, one of my favourite Dales trails for its views and gnarly terrain, the climb up is particularly tricky with some rocksteps to catch out the unwary









At the end of Stalling Busk, I cut down to Marsett to do another lovely trail up the river, in the bottom







After coming out on Carperley Green, I took the Crag Road... high above SemerWater to do the final trail of the day - Cam High Road which brings you out above Gayle





Down to Hawes for a quick cuppa and back home along some of the Dales finest country roads

Let the washing commence.....................happy days




Paradise of a day out............... in some of Yorkshire's finest landscapes

Looks like a good day on 2 wheels! The XChallenge provides a lot of smiles per mile.. I miss mine. Thanks for sharing your ride.

Absolutely brilliant
For those of us sitting on the other side of the big pond, with snow and bitter cold outside, though today did feel like spring here on the East Coast, it's nice to see you with the earlier spring really go out there and meet it.
It just makes me so bloody homesick though
Thanks for sharing this!

Thanks for the report and the photographs are fantastic. I refer to my neighborhood as God's Country too, I guess he gets around.

Cheers

I dont know why, but I have a hard time giving up this idea that all of the UK is paved. Its great to see I am wrong, and that you British ADVers have some great places to play...
