The neck pain has eased off a bit,still cant sit in one place for longer then 20 mins tho.

I didnt know there was a old railway track out that way,did you go on road to mkt weighton or did you follow the wolds way?

As for a ride.all next week ive got a few things on during the day,if i can sort out my hardtail id be able to get out from 4pm onwards if thats any good

Been away in the Lakes the past week. Had a good hike up Old Man of Coniston last Sunday, then took the bike out on Tuesday and Thursday.

Tuesday was a loop from Coniston to Torver and back over Walna Scar Road, couple of leg burners and good DH's.

Though, Walna has had a re-lay, there are still a few rocky sections.

Thursday, I took a loop to the North of Coniston, towards Little Langdale via Tarn Hows and Tilberthwaite.

Lakes are well worth the trip, shame it takes over 4hrs to get there...

I've finally finished mapping the Wolds Way by bike. I've tried to do as much offroad as possible and follow the actual route as near as possible?

I'm sure it can be refined further but this is a first go at the full thing.

I've avoided footpaths as much as possible, though there are still one or two "cheeky" ones in there, mainly the local ones; like the one up from Ferriby to the scout camp or any that suddenly went from Bridlepath to footpath!! :?

I'm going to try riding parts of it to see how well it rides then I'll update the route if I change anything.

I've uploaded it HERE

Nice bit of mapping there Noddy.

It doesn't look that hard, but 89 mile with quite abit off road, could be an ars* breaker...

How long do you think it would take, 8-9 hours with stops? A ride for early September maybe....

Thanks Giggs, I'm not sure of the times as yet. I could use Memorymap to calculate it roughly based on average speeds?
I'm going to ride some parts of it as I think there are probably some bits that could follow footpaths if they run along tracks similar to the one that runs around the querry out of Melto Bottom. I might be able to improve on the distance a bit then and possibly make it more interesting; athough with it being the Wolds, the most challenging bit will be slogging over tracks that are chewed up by cattle and horses!!

Based on an average speed of about 7mph, Memorymap is saying 16Hours 46Mins!!!

I reckon they will be the odd section that will be a struggle but thats part of the adventure right!

I don't think the pic does it justice.... :D

Carbon forks, not the best looking I know. Definitley looked better on the net. It might look a tad sexier with 29er's.

Not that I have felt, but i've only been out on it once. Ain't tried it off road with a big front tyre yet, just looking for one now.

So the 29er is that a replacement for anything?
