- The 'Reet gud ride' (60ml) takes the same route as the 30 ml and 100 ml until splitting at Knayton. Not long the village of Knayton a cross roads is reached the route bares right, you will start the YLCC Mountain fuel QOM , remember to name your ride as the route you are on, there is a prize for the fastest assent. Save your legs this is where the climbing starts, it starts to climb up towards Felixkirk on beautiful twisting lanes giving spectacular views across the vale of York and over towards Kilburn. Also passing through the lovely named Sutton under Whitestonecliffe. You may recognise this from the Tour de Yorkshire, at the foot of Sutton Bank ( before you panic we don't go up there). As we approach Kilburn there is a fantastic view of the white horse up to the left on the hillside. Kilburn is the second feedstop which is in the yard of the famous 'Mousey Thompson' bespoke oak furniture makers whose signature is a carved mouse on each piece. Both routes swing round under white horse bank through Olstead and onto the stunning Byland Abbey (selfies a must) Here routes split, 100 ml goes left, 60 mls turns right towards Cotswold. Through Cotswold is the picturesque Newburgh Priory. On towards Husthwaite through some small villages on country lanes, Sessay and Dalton and into Sowerby up the tree lined avenue before coming back into Thirsk. This road takes on the last furlong past the Racecourse back to Carlton Lodge after your 'Reet gud ride' go collect your Cuppa, piece of cake and a medal.
