to the Cattal turning by which time it had started to get busier than it had been; the southerly ride was then halted by the level crossing where eventually a train arrived and departed and then eventually the crossing keeper turned up to manually open the gates, a process unchanged since the 19th century. Thereafter all the way through Cattal, over the River Nidd and along Rudgate there was masses of cyclists heading north, in groups or individually.
and then on Bilton Lane, reached via the cyclepath on the old railway from Starbeck, the chain had a disagreement with the chainrings.
As you will know better than me, there is one of those 1950s dedicated cycle paths beside much of the A167 between Durham and Chester-le-Street.brought me to the A167. I'd normally try to avoid it but today just wanted a quick ride home so I could get warm and dry.
