A few of us are leaving from Holmfirth about 9am with the ‘official’ starting point being the Route 59 cafe at 10am. We’ll then head up towards Settle/Hawes, and then on to Buttertubs. All are welcome to join the ride or meet up somewhere along the way,. We’ve got about five people involved so far apart from anyone from the forum.
If you fancy joining us, post here or PM me and we’ll get organised.

Departing from Holmfirth town square at 8am and heading up to Route 59 for 9:45.
We’ll be leaving Route 59 at 10.10 sharp, so get there early for a loo break/coffee.
Then on to Settle (refuel stop only) and up to Hawes, group photo stop en route at the viaduct. We should get to Hawes for about 11:30.
Leaving Hawes at 12:30 to head up Buttertubs, circling back round to Hawes and back down to Settle by 2:30 ish. From here, fastest route home. You’ll be back at Route 59 by 3. Holmfirth by 4:15 ish.
Check our places map if you want to know where Route 59 is.
Not sure of your route to Hawes but if you can manage to go on the road through Buckden & Yockenthwaite to Hawes you will follow the tumbling river on one of the most picturesque routes.
I’m not in charge of route planning for this one but I’ll pass it on. Thanks, Andy.
