6887ft of ascent

A lovely ride starting in Settle and passing through Ingleton, Dent and Hawes, over Fleet Moss from the hard side, through Kettlewell, Grassington and then back to Settle via Cracoe and a fearsome headwind.  The weather was freezing cold at first but sunny later (though still cold).  Great company as usual from Audax regulars Anthony and Martin.  Ride an audax – you’ll love it.

These hills look really flat in photos!

Admiring the waterfall and trying to convince me to go and stand in it!

Dent - homemade chocolate scone with clotted cream and marmalade. Delicious!

Martin and Anthony on the final ramp of Fleet Moss. Looks easy from here. It isn't.

Last café stop in Grassington. Rocky Road very nice!

Today was the first serious ride on my Canyon.  I love it – it flies up hills, soaks up the bumps and I felt fresher than usual at the end.

    Hi Ade,
    I did this one last year. It was my first conquest of Fleet moss from the wild side. It’s a fabulous ride, isn’t it? Where did you eat in Dent? I was in the Meadowside Cafe at about 3pm on Friday, on the Old 240 perm. Maybe you rode on Saturday or Sunday.

    Keep ’em coming!

      We did it yesterday. The Meadowside had no electricity so we tried a small place further up in the village – the Stone Tearoom I think it was called – very nice little place. Cheers
