We are are going to cycle over to Little Stainforth and where possible will use back lanes . The route starts in Ilkley at 10am from the Commute Cafe , and we should average 12 to 14 mph . The weather seems to be quite settled for Wednesday so we should be able to stop off along Littondale and next to Pen Y Ghent to take some all important pictures . The idea is that the ride will be leisurely and safety will be of the utmost importance, a sweeper at the back and keeping as a group will be essential .
We have produced a route on Garnin Connect which can be uploaded on to your Garmins . It will be 64 miles and roughly 4000 feet , taking in two climbs. We aim to get back to Ilkley for about 4pm depending upon mechanicals , punctures etc .
We intend to stop off in Little Stainforth at the Knights Table , a lovely cafe where cyclists are made very welcome but if a quick cuppa is required before we start the ascent from Halton Gill then Katie's Self Serve Cafe is at the end of Littondale where tea , coffee and cakes can be enjoyed al fresco .
