Route is Bolton Abbey, Barden Tower, Appletreewick, Hebden, Grassington, Kettlewell, Threshfield, Burnsall, Bolton Abbey. So essentially it is up the east side & back down the west side of the valley. There are plenty of places to cut-short or cross-over and regain the group if anybody needs to. We should arrive back in Ilkley by 7 o’clock for refreshment & maybe a bit of breakfast before we all go about our normal daily business. Normal Solstice rules apply*

[* can’t hang around for punctures & mechanicals as (most?) people have work to get back for – so please be prepared]
