A 'mini' adventure

I head out on my own today on a 'mini' adventure on to the North York Moors. Starting off at a flying site The Hole of Horcum, a site where one of the first World Hang Gliding Championships was held.

A Green Lane (off road track) runs into a 'big' forest which is about a 40 minute ride - another 20 minutes through the forest along the fire roads and then a muddy climb to the top of the ridge, then out onto the open Moor. Breathtaking views looking down to Robin Hoods Bay are soon followed by a hard slog down deeply rutted tracks full of water and my God, it was cold.
