Weather great, took a early morning ride over the Cat and Fiddle.
Great road with a mate on a ducati desert sled, great bike but couldn’t get away from the Wing!...

I have been over The Cat and fiddle many times. I prefer the Yorkshire dales, Hawes and Asygarth falls are a nice run, on good roads from Settle onwards nice twisty bends for miles, on country roads.

That part of the country has never appealed to me either, and I've thought for many years now that I much prefer riding the roads above the West to East line of the M62 to anything that's below it.
While the leather clad hordes were out riding line astern to their next egg banjo destination at the weekend, and the Trad riders were out heading for the seaside at Bridlington. I had a ride out into the East Yorkshire Wolds again to ride slowly down a very old and scenic single track road just outside the village of Kilham called Woldgate, or Woldgate Woods.
This road following the route of an old Roman road inspired many paintings and iPad paintings by world renowned and Bridlington born artist David Hockney. I thought I'd get round to going there one day after looking a selection of Hockney's iPad paintings of Woldgate as it changed through the seasons. I got the idea after a visit to the art gallery Salt's Mill in Saltaire, West Yorkshire last year.
Well worth doing too.
