2 places left
The second of four rides around the Yorkshire Dales over the Easter bank holiday weekend, based around Hawes.
This is a 90 mile (100km) circular road cycle, starting in Hawes and following quiet Yorkshire roads to Malham Cove for lunch.
"Malham Cove is a large curved limestone formation 0.6 miles north of the village of Malham, North Yorkshire, England. It was formed by a waterfall carrying meltwater from glaciers at the end of the last Ice Age more than 12,000 years ago. Today it is a well-known beauty spot within the Yorkshire Dales National Park." Wikipedia

Food & drink
Please bring plenty of snacks, the plan is to go to a cafe/pub but I cannot guarantee a convenient pub will show itself at lunchtime, they have a nasty habit of closing down and becoming housing.
