Due to the forecast of snow, I was the only one at the station, while the others did a walk from Riccall to have a meal in the pub at Naburn.
My ride went via Aldwark Bridge to Lotherton Hall. Lotherton Hall had a Christmas Experiance event taking place which mean't the Cafe was very busy, so I decided to head to Tadcaster which turned out to be a good move, since it started to snow has I approached the Battle of Townton site. I came Straight back from Tadcaster a total of 59 miles (shorter than I had planned).
