By the time I get to Blubberhouses people are few and even the trees are thinning out. I wander up though the moss and the bog to Palley's Crag, a few bits of Moorland grit, tonight covered in sun and a wind with still a hint of chill on a micro moor near nowhere much. The only sign of humanity ...

Nice weather, let's head over the hill. Meet Ali at the cars, wander into Sharphaw. Quite a long way up the track. The boulders look down on the A65, it's quite a view. The first buttress Airedale Wall looks rubbish. it is not. Undercut at the base, rough, with thin breaks it is good.

Vikings Return
It was Justin's idea I got a text "would I be interested in being part of a Viking 4 Inns team once more?" I said "all right then" I have been doing a little bit of late if he had asked any other year in the last 20. I would have run to Buxton just to get a...

I ran the Harewood 10k today, lovely route around the edges of the estate. I dipped under 50minutes and as I ran a long way on Friday I'm happy with that. Trouble was the start was delayed by 15 minutes as they couldn't get all the cars parked. I was pretty cold when we headed off, not ideal.

North-Wales Easter. Words that strike dread into the adventure seeker past thier first flush of youth. Unrelenting drizzle, the musty wet dog smell of gear that won't dry and another afternoon aborting to the cafe as you can't stand a misty, drizzly walk again.

People of the left your attention please
I wasn't entirely surprised the Labour party didn't win the election. Milliband over performed but expectations were at an all time low. I was gobsmacked by a Tory majority though. What was more surprising is how left leaning people generally have reacted. ...

Spreading a little Happyness
I had just poured the coffee it was only 8.15, in walks someone roughly my age. "Do you know anywhere I can get my bike serviced". I smile and point at the vacant bike stand. "How much will it be?" "It's free, I get paid to do it, I will charge you for any ...

Don't deviate from their narrow view of what a customer is or it is GET ORRFFF MY LAND TIME. You have more chance of getting a banned substance past dropping control at the Olympics than you have of getting a food or drink that is not vended by them into your face, whilst on their plot. Mere ignorance of these REGULATIONS is no defence, you have been warned. A pity, in principle it has a winning offer and the food is the good side of average. I hope they don't need repeat business to sustain their business model as I will not be supplying any.

See update at the end....Very interested in up selling and 50 quid for wheel alignment is taking the proverbial. 4 hours to do four tyres and the tracking. Make of that what you will. Universal tyres behind the fire station is an owner run business. I think I will spend my money there. Update Owner rang me back to apologise after she read this review although to start with it sounded like a critique but good on her for caring. I think they want to do a good job and the work they did was fine. I 'm all for localism, but I would still recommend Universal tyres in preference on balance.

Haven't been but it is famous for charging someone £100 for writing a negative review on trip advisor which seems about the lowest form of business i can imagine just thought i would share the love or lack there of. Won't now be going don't suppose many will.

A high quality organisation with great facilities and some really knowledgeable staff. They can also arrange Tuition in Leeds and musicians for hire.

Many helpful staff one or too real ogres who can be rude as you like one ogre seems to be the owner. Unfortunately what should be the best bike shop in Harrogate can be like entering the lions den so I buy off the web and god help us go to Halfords.

Fairly Greasy, not much to look at and that's just the staff, The food is also on the greasy side and the service could best be described as surly, grudging and pedestrian. On the upside it's not nearly a bad as one I once went to in Rhyl so that's a bonus and it's open on a Sunday when the excellent Coronation Fisheries is not.

A quality cafe with a good menu and handy for gear shops. Excellent terrace over mill race makes for excellent al fresco eating. Compromised by 10 0 Clock opening and relatively large distance to mountains.
