Hey Gonzalo, welcome to the forum. You should elaborate a bit more on your "rides"

Are you talking about a 200 miles trip?

A 10 miles trip and spend the day in the pub? :) 

What type of ride you enjoy? countryside or just around York (city rides)?

 

I'm sure you will find someone keen in going along but you need to be a wee bit more specific :thumb:

Have a google for any local clubs as they should be able to start up again soon :thumb:

Mind you there is nothing wrong with riding on your own, I prefer to ride on my own as I set my own pace and go where I want to go, if i decide to make a change along the route then that's what I will do :thumb:

Wonder why you see so many professional cyclists in a huge pile up then. 😂 

 

I'm same with big groups, no matter how careful you are it only takes one idiot.

Hi.

 

I don't know if its open at present, if it is Fimber Cafe on the B1248 would be a good starting point. Not bad to get there from Leeds. Loads of bikers were getting in there, pre Covid. I'm hoping for a visit a week tomorrow.

 

Get refreshed and follow it up with a ride round the Yorkshire Wolds and then bomb on home back to Leeds down the A64.

 

Regards.

Hi.

 

I went to Fimber last Wednesday. It was open for refreshments. Plenty of nice bikes there too.

 

Regards.

Hi.

 

No I came in on the B1248 from Malton and Norton. I back tracked after a cup of tea and a slice of egg and bacon pie. Ended up at Hovingham, Byland Abbey and back through Hemsley to Whitby. Brilliant days ride.

 

Regards.

It's a good run that way :thumb:
