Scouting our way across Yorkshire

We arrived in Bridlington today to one of the best receptions yet – dozens of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts who escorted us into town on their bikes!

Our new support team

We had a lovely ride today across the Yorkshire Wolds – making the most of the sunshine as we headed east to the coast from Malton.

Arriving in Yorkshire was another story. We left Horncastle in Lincolnshire on Sunday and rode 70 miles that day – the last 30 in steady rain. We must have looked like drowned rats when we arrived at Rawcliffe near Goole that afternoon.

Luckily Monday wasn’t so bad. We had one good climb north of Pocklington but we were on quiet country lanes – and we figure we need to keep our legs in practice as it’s not going to get any easier when we head up the North Yorkshire coast and across to Cumbria.

We also had a really good turnout at Monday night’s talk in Malton – a combined audience mostly made up of Kirbymoorside Cubs and Ryedale Explorer Scouts. Tomorrow night we’re in Whitby – to talk to more Scouts.

  2. We were on our way to Harrogate having just finished a very good holiday at HPB Askgrigg and was going into Aysgarth and around a bend on the opposite side of the road we saw a tandem with green box. I said that’s a shelter box and gave a hoot on my car horn in support. I rembered reading about Huw nd Carolyn’s cycle ride in the June Rotary Today. Well done to you both.
