I'm off on holiday for a few days tomorrow, stopping in a house just outside of Driffield. I'm taking my bike (albeit winter one) and should get chance for a couple of early morning short rides (25 - 30 miles). Can anyone do me a couple of routes, preferably on Ride With GPS or Komoot so I can use turn by turn on my Elemnt Bolt? Not sure of the terrain around there but maybe a hilly one and a flat one if possible?

If someone can help please drop me a PM and I'll give you my post code.

    I was going to offer some suggestions but I think your time would be better spent looking for your sense of humour that you appear to have misplaced.

    If it was from someone other than one of the select one or two on this forum then I would have I would have found it humourous but every post from this guy seems to follow the same vein.

    Thanks to those that have suggested routes.

    The is a nice climb from the a64 to foxholes. I ride through driffield on my way home on Monday. The woods are lovely. You can make up a route in Strava.

    I'm actually closer to Hornsea than Driffield (Bewholme). The address was Driffield so assumed it was Driffield!

    Went out earlier. Flat as a pancake and pretty boring to be honest but at least I got to spin my legs.

    You went the wrong way. There are some brilliant roads in that neck of the woods. Have a look on Strava Heatmaps to see where the locals ride...
