Slightly longer pootle to Tadcaster and Bolton Spa


A cold day, glad of my four top layers and thermal tights. Toes never had feeling.  Routes around this way are very much dictated by river crossings; Tadcaster (no photo) and Thorp Arch, just after which I recognised a control from Goodbye Xmas Pud.  Happy to report that although it was a slow ride my hill climbing and weight are both improved since then.
