A cycle ride to Bell Mills
The route today was almost the same as the one I took a fortnight ago, with different riders, except in the reverse direction. (Although this time there wasn't the extra loop I put in to Kilham and Burton Agnes.)
I didn't mind – despite the grim weather I enjoyed it – and the variations to the route helped me to orientate myself as part of my ongoing education: the towns and villages of the Yorkshire Wolds and Holderness Plain.
Today it was Wawne, Brandesburton, North Frodingham, Skerne, Driffield, Watton, Kilnwick, Lockington, South Dalton, Etton, Walkington and Skidby amongst others. 62 miles. I still can't help scrunching my face when I try to think of where all the places are in relation to each other. (Following the routes of the Big Skies Bike Rides – mostly on my own – has helped, but it's taking a while.) Perhaps I should be grateful that there are so many. At least I'll never get bored.
