Yorkshire Dales – country lanes

ba2-riders

Three riders on Sunday.

In the past week, I’ve been to Bolton Abbey a few times. On Sunday it was sunny and the roads were quite busy with cyclists. The weekend enables a lot more cyclists (and cars) to be on the road. During the weekdays, there are not as many cyclists, but still quite a few on the back roads. I think the riders mid-week are more likely to be serious racers. There are quite a few professionals who live in the area, and these are popular roads for training on.

Three fast riders had flown by before chance to get a good photo. They looked like serious riders.

Pink jersey stands out on the grey afternoon. You know you are on a good cycling road when cyclists can outnumber cars by 5:1 – that’s what it felt like on Sunday.
