Thee daft bugger! That's a waste of pie eating opportunities.

Here's a revised itinerary
Leeds to Harrogate - 12 miles wi' pie shops in Leeds Wike and Harrogate
York to Sheffield - 55 miles wi' pie shops in York, Riccall, Selby, Eggborough (Gala pies recommended), Askern, Bentley and Sheffield
Bridlington to Scarborough - 17 miles wi pie shops in Bridlington, Filey and Scarborough
Selby to York - 15 miles wi' pie shops in Selby, Riccall and York
Wakefield to Leeds - 10 miles wi' pie shops in Wakefield, Rothwell and Leeds

That's 109 miles and more pies than you can shake a stick at.

Goodbye miles, hello pies with the added bonus of Cattle Ranch, Leeds doing unlimited ribs on a Monday night for £21. A fitting end to an expiedition.

Are you there yet? Only asking because you have promised to do 2 CC rides and have not turned up or even replied. Does anyone know this guy?
He has bailed on the CC Ecosse tour as well, leaving me out of pocket - I wouldn't mind so much if he gave me a reasonable explanation...

He was the only person on my Llandudno ride that just failed to turn up and never offered any explanation
I know he said he had some personal stuff going on but never expanded, so I could understand if something unforeseen has happened but all along he was saying he was fine with the arrangements but wouldn't pay the deposit - he PM'd me last week to say he has "too much going on", but no offer to cover my costs. More than a bit peed off as it's all done on trust, but what can you do?
 
I am a born sceptic, and this guy is only reinforcing my instincts. Someone must know him here on CC and maybe provide an explanation as to what is going on. I did a bit of chin scratching when I saw the OP about 500 miles in 5 days on fixed, possible but unlikely.
