MT350 tour of Yorkshire lanes

Post by sparky » Tue Oct 08, 2019 7:58 pm

There's a 4 page write-up of one of Diesel Dave's tours of the Yorkshire Dales in Real Classic October 2019. The article features 4 MT350s on 140 mile run, mostly unpaved lanes. (Probably a bit tame compared to Bonnylad's runs but looks interesting).

I fall off on inclines, damp, grass, wet, rocks and everything apart from tarmac, I managed them so they can't be that difficult. :shock:

Start was Cowling, Ilkley Moor, Ilkley, Bolton Abbey, Skyreholme, Pateley Bridge, Lofthouse, Grewelthorpe, Masham, Leyburn, Castle Bolton, kettlewell, Skipton Cowling. Only 4 MT350s. I just thought it was a nice write-up.
I have wanted to come on your weekends but I always have something else on and I'm not an offroader at all! A couple of years ago we (AJS & Matchless club North West) were actually staying in Hawes at the Green Dragon at Hardraw the week before your weekend. We were leaving friday morning as you were going to arrive. We had a superb week, not one drop of rain.
