  • Few more. Absolutely banging sandwich from the Deli in Helmsley market square - a must if you’re ever there. The pecan slice thingies were critical ride fuel as well. Probably the densest concentration of calories in the known world.

  • ^lovely cycling country, had a fab holiday near Helmsley and did Rosedale Chimney and met someone I knew from Lewisham in the Red Lion. Must go back some time.

  • What's a cinder surface? Not come across that term.

  • According to a google search talking about a similar path in Whitby.
    “ The track ballast was made from cinders rather than crushed stone, hence the name the Cinder Track.”
    It’s noticeable because it’s black rather than the yellow of the other tracks in the area that come from the native sandstone of the Moors.
    I’m not totally sure if it refers to cinder as a waste product from industry or scoria/volcanic rock.
    It’s smooth and nice to ride on. Mainly because of the preparation to make it into a railway line rather than the material itself I guess.

  • Great ride report.

    Did you ever have a different username? Writing style (and length of post) rings a bell...
