Arnside to Whitby road ride 140 miles - 11th June to 14th June 2020


Phil Morgan is organising a C2C for Garstang CC running from Thursday 11th June to Sunday 14th June.
Although mainly for club members, he would be happy if any KDCS members wanted to tag along….these are his thoughts….

There is a 3 day ride:
Thursday -  Arnside to Hawes - overnight in Hawes,
distance approx. 40 miles.
Route- Barbondale, Denthead, Hawes. Café stops in Dent.

Friday      - Hawes to Northallerton - overnight in Northallerton
approx. 38 miles
Route- Askrigg, Castle Bolton, Leyburn

Saturday - Northallerton to Whitby - overnight in Whitby
approx. 57 miles- 4300 ft ascent
Route- Brompton, Appleton Wisk, Rudby, Great Ayton, Danby, Egton, Sleights, Whitby.

There is a big group meal at the Magpie Fish Restaurant on the Saturday night, then on the Sunday around 1-2pm, everyone gets picked up by coach and returned to the start point at Arnside…bikes come back in a van (2 probably). Thus far we have 29 riders, but it will end up around 32 or so.

Whilst KDCS members may like to arrange their own accommodation, in Hawes Northallerton, and  Whitby….they can take advantage of the luggage transport in our van following each Garstang CC group, and return bike and person transport. 

For further information please  contact David Wills - davidwills1961@outlook.com

Numbers are restricted so it will be on a first come first served basis.
