Leaving Somerset Bridge, Aspley, at 9 a.m. we climb up to Almondbury and on to Farnley Tyas. Next stop is Shepley from where we climb (again, sorry) towards The Windmills and The Victoria. From there we descend to New Mill and carry on to Honley. We then proceed up Magdale and to the Meltham Greenway which we follow to Morrison's cafe. We should then have plenty of time for lunch and to complete the short trip to Meltham Methodist Church Hall in time for the 1 p.m. start.

The distance is about 25 miles and is quite hilly but we have plenty of time and we will travel at a relaxed pace. The aim is to arrive in Meltham at about noon.

The following tour ideas will be on the agenda at the AGM.
Please if you have thoughts or suggestions let me know, especially if you can't make the committee meeting.

Dales Way - proposed date second week of April - have colleagues done this before ? options 3/4 day: car assisted from Skipton/Malham or start from Huddersfield, longer loop from Slaidburn etc

Sometime in June/early July - a weekend at Grassington Bunkbarn - high quality, self catering hostel like accommodation with brill views

First full week in August Semaine federale - ace centre based touring, in beautiful Normandy - Montagne Sur le Perche 200km from Calais. Car share ?

Either post, send me email to gmail address or bring suggestions to committee
Jayne Moore I did this ride a couple of years ago. It is a fantastic ride and well worth the effort. It is hilly but with every hill up there is a good descent. There is wall to wall scenery from start to finish. I did it over three days starting and finishing at Skipton. Roughly 45 miles a day was good for me. From Huddersfield i would suggest 4 days. Will be a great group ride. I can't get to the AGM but have the cycle map if you want to borrow it. I go out with the tints on Wednesdays. Can i put my name down if this one goes ahead providing it misses Easter weekend. ( Easter day is 16th April.

Simon Lawrence Am hoping to get to the AGM, though not to the ride. Having done the Dales Cycleway twice, I know that it's a fantastic tour as Jayne says, but really tough too.
