Ride to Malham,Littondale & Halton Gill

Sunday 10th June at 10.15 - Start point is Settle railway station (free parking on the road behind the station. This can be accessed by taking the next right after the station road and then right again). The ride is 30 miles and overall is classed as fairly strenuous. It starts with a steep climb out of Settle heading for Kirby Malham / Malham. It then heads up past Malham Cove to the west of the tarn over to Arncliffe. Arncliffe and Litton are the lunch stop options with 2 pubs (Falcon Inn and Queens Arms). They do teas / coffees / sandwiches etc. there used to be a tea room but I'm not sure that it is now open. Suggest riders bring their own supplies if they don't fancy the pubs. The route then goes on to Halton Gill before heading steeply over to Stainforth. It then crosses the railway / river to head back down to Settle. I'm not proposing any tea stop before lunch because the options around , Malham are just too early. Ride leader Steve Warner.
