The best road by far in that area is the A169 across the Moors, runs from Malton to Whitby and you get a bonus of some of the best fish and chips in the country when you get there. There is also Malton Specialist Cars which always has a good stock of Porsche.

its a good road .. but no where near the best.

If you want a good run out in some nice countryside do this route. Incorporates the Ribblehead & Buttertubs. Finish at Masham where the brewerys are and then you can then run back via Ripon . Some roads are good quick stuff, others are more technical ( my prefered kind )

https://goo.gl/maps/fRUrAoFC3mB2

Do not be tempted to go on the road through Kettlewell ... its scenic , but crap to drive as you are always stuck behind someone & its too narrow to pass.

All above is assuming you're not in a wide & low 991 GT3

Thanks so much, we did the Malton-Whitby run a year or so back in the GT3, this time will be taking the C4 Cab and the run through the Dales looks great!
Our friends live in Masham and will be meeting us in Harrogate for lunch at Gino's and tea at Bettys on the Wednesday, so will give the Dales route a go on Tuesday leaving Leeds and ending in Harrogate.


Let's hope the weather remains dry!

Beware of camera vans. North Yorkshire Police seem to have speeding as a priority what

A64 between M1 and up to near Malton turnoff seems favourite on that stretch.

I can tell as the link I posted isn’t working on my phone .... did it show correct, with the route going via Pateley bridge, settle etc ?

Camera vans ... watch out on the biker roads around ribblehead / Hawes ... been some fatalities recently so they’re keen ... I was snapped the other day coming out of Hawes by a hidden police motorcyclist with a camera on a tripod

Started off in Leeds at Royal Armouries then road trip with the hood down through
Otley, Ilkley, Settle, Ribblehead, Tea stop at Hawes and back via Masham & Ripon to Harrogate.
Lovely trip, virtually no traffic in the Dales.

Thanks for recommended route, brilliant thumbsup

Good to hear you enjoyed North Yorkshire 👍 beware anyone between m62 m1 junction upto a64 and up the a64 plenty of unmarked cars!

Loads of great places to eat in Harrogate note least the new I am donna not your normal cheap kabab, someone told me they had to wait an hour to get served last weekend!

I must have an early blast out next weekend before the weather changes!
