Driveout to the Lakes 19.1.13. - Just wondered if any members from the Yorks, Humber & surrounding area were interested in going over to join this? Meeting them at 10.30am on the A66 just west of Penrith. The route we will take is A1 North, Harrogate, over Blubberhouses to Skipton Travelodge for 8.30am, A65 to Kendal, A6 over the Shap to Penrith. Anybody fancies convoying over and joining it, please add your name.

How far is the meet from Ripon nick?
Hi Chris! Ripon to Huddersfield is about 50 miles, but then we are driving over to the Lakes remember. Doncaster to Huddersfield is about 68 miles, so you would be closer than us if your in Ripon.

Would be easier if you met us enroute at Skipton. Ripon to Skipton is about 30 miles depending which route you take. We are leaving Huddersfield at 8.30am so I would think if your there for 9.30am you should catch us.

Just be aware guys if your going on the M62 there's a long stretch of 50mph limit with average speed cameras right through from Leeds pretty much all the way to Huddersfield.
Don't want anyone getting caught.

Im not sure which way they are taking us from Huddersfield James but thanks for the "heads up". Its about time the work was finished there, ive endured those roadworks for years, everytime I go over to "Head Office" - a right pain
I believe the route is out through Shipley to Skipton then the A65 to Kendal, so the M62 wont be involved hopefully. Saying that looking at the map we may go East on the M62 for a few miles to go up through Bradford to get to Shipley, its not the route I would pick but im not planning it, so good call James!
Just seen on Facebook they are going up the M6 from Kendal, nobody must have told them one of the best roads in England runs nearly parallel and it will be empty.
