Out for a spin in the Dales yesterday, from Wensley got to the bridge that crosses the Ure at Middleham (a fairly striking castellated construction) to find 'Road Closed' signs up. But, upon cycling onward to investigate I found that though the whole bridge surface is gone a temporary bridge for pedestrians (and dismounted cyclists) has been erected. And this is nearly always the case when there are roadworks - isn't it immensely satisfying to be able to get past and carry on while cars have to perform awkward seven-point turns and work out how to get to X? And the number of disgruntled motorcyclists in Middleham poring over their maps! So if you are planning on using the A6108 before the end of March remember the bridge is closed unless you are on a bike (and actually I think even a bike trailer would be difficult to get across).
