Climbing up West Road from Carleton

Climbing up West Road from Carleton

Last nights ride was a bit of a hilly one but one “enjoyed” by everyone.  As usual we set off from Glusburn Institute and headed off to Kildwick to start our first climb up through Kildwick and over the tops to Draughton.  Once across the A65 it was onwards to Skipton where we we shouted at by passing motorists “Allez Allez Allez!” Makes a change form “*!**!!!” or “get some road tax!”  Most be the Wiggo effect!

Anyway onwards to Carleton to start our penultimate climb of the day, which MapMy Ride lists as a category 3.  It starts off steep out Carleton but eases after the first half a mile.  The Scweelers were strung out with Paul Fitz Leaving us all behind.

The last climb was the drag from Cowling up Dick Lane, past Cowling Pinicle and Lunds Tower before dropping back down the technical descent of West Lane and down to Sutton.  Then back home to Glusburn.

Cheers guys, great ride.
