Been pretty quiet on the fish 'n' chips front recently....but off to Cologne on Wednesday to the Intermot Motorcycle Show.  I'll report on any chippies I come across on my return.

Eye eye, that's yer lot!

Having been advised to  try Weldon's Fisheries  in Eye Green in  Peterborough, I called in last night, Tuesday car!  All I can say is that the prices were reasonable, lots of off road parking but the food was not a patch on the Market Place in Barton upon Humber...but then I wasn't in Barton, I was in Eye Green and hungry.

The Lion, Blakey Ridge, Kirkbymoorside

OK,OK, so it isn't a fish'n' chip shop, but The Lion is certainly worth a visit...and visit it we did on our Friday ride out. You'll find The Lion on Blakey Ridge, YO62 7LQ.

We rode over a wind-blasted Humber Bridge, now free to motorcyclists, breakfasted at Mrs B's Woodland Cafe at the Humber Bridge Amenity Area, Hessle HU13 0LN, then on through Malton and Pickering to Rosedale Abbey. Turning left into Gill Lane leads you to the 1 in 3 (!!!) Rosedale Chimney Bank. This you must try...but not on an icy day and whatever you do, don't stop!! On over the moors to Hutton-le-Hole and turn right , climbing to The Lion. Back then via minor roads through Amotherby, touching the west sine of Malton, minor roads to Pocklington, the Humber Bridge, Barton upon Humber - The Market Place must be the absolute best chippie on here - and then home. 12 hours and 260 miles of good riding in good weather.
