Cycling in The Yorkshire Dales

32nd day of the epic 100 posts in 100 days challenge

This is a continuation of the series of photos I took on my favourite bike ride, which starts in Otley, goes via Blubberhouses up The Washburn Valley then past Greenhow, down past Stump Cross Caverns, to Barden, past Bolton Abbey, and then back along the back road behind Addingham and Ilkley.

This section is from The Washburn to Barden.

Quiet, car free roads in the Yorkshire Dales

Still no cars!

Nice views

Still nice views, when will it end?

Time for a quick bite to eat by the river.

Barden Bridge, (and my Bicycle)

I stop at Barden Bridge, for a rest, an ice-cream, and to admire the views.

Some fellow cyclists, not in need of an ice-cream.
