Introduction

A short, flat fast ride around the area to the west of York.

Conditions

Cyclepaths and quiet country roads.

Detailed description

Follow the cycleway to the centre of York, then exit York via Heworth to Stockton on the forest. Then cross the A 64 and head to Haxby then Wiggenton, before turning south at Skelton to return to the start.

Narrative

A cold winter's even, and the need to get the blood flowing made me decide on a short after work ride. Having got bored of my usual circuits, a jaunt to the west of York seemed like a good idea. The whole ride took about 1 1/2 hours including a puncture stop near Haxby.
