    Routes for the Mega Meet 2017 - Yorkshire

    [b] I have emailed the routes to all attendees hopefully. If you did not get an email from Tiger800@gmx.co.uk please let me know and I will add you to the list.

    I have been out doing some route planning and just need to give them both a full run through before I post them up here.

    There is a ride out round the North Yorks Moors on the Saturday taking in Castle Howard, Goathland / Aidensfield for coffee and Whitby for lunch. Followed by the Stokesley to Helmsley TT road and the finest view in England from Sutton Bank. A big white horse on the way back to the bar Saturday evening.

    I will be stopping for Petrol on the way back Saturday evening so we are all ready to go on Sunday morning.

    Sunday is a day out in the Yorkshire dales, where we will have morning coffee in a castle, visit the highest pub in England then ride Jeremy Clarkson's favourite road across the Buttertubs pass to Hawes. Here we will have lunch at the famous Wensleydale Creamery where Wallace gets his cheese. Depending on weather and fatigue levels we can take the long road or the short route back to the Hawkhills for our last party night.

    Much of our routes are on the 'Tour of Yorkshire' cycle race this weekend so road surfaces are good. I just hope it stays dry for us.

    The routes will be made in Garmin Basecamp and uploaded as GDB and GPX formats. I will also print a list of village names for the luddites without a GPX.

    We will be using the second man drop off system that worked so well in Scotland last year so please familiarise yourself with it but a reminder will be given on Friday night at the Hawkhills.

    I will also try to print some copies of the routes out and set some meeting points if people do get split up from the main group.

    Watch this space for the route files.

    Please post any route related questions or comments in this topic to keep things tidy.

    Shouldn't be any need, a tomtom will handle a .gpx file ok

    Yeah, but if Big Stu isn't massively au  fait with the tech -  but  does know Tyre and how to use it, then tyre is the easiest way for him to do it. Open the file, send to tomtom. Piece of pish :123:
