Dr Claud prescribes Medicinal Beer for @wanda2010. Anyone else out and about in Leeds tonight, and if not have the locals got any good beer/food tips?

I can confirm that TPE do take bike reservations between Scarborough & York if you buy the ticket through their website, as I have the bit of cardboard to prove it.
Can't speak for destinations west of York though :sad:

Warning and apologies in advance.
I am at the tail-end of having a very runny cold, so there will be the occasional snot-rocket. I'll ride at the back to maintain some semblance of decorum.:rain:

TPE take reservations AND REQUIRE THEM everywhere that they operate (though rumour has it that gambling cyclists may occasionally blag a space without a reservation).

Northern do NOT offer reservations but it is extremely rare to not be able to get a bike onto one of their trains, unless you choose a daft time to try. I would suggest that the coming World Cycling Championships in Yorkshire is one of those rare (outside of commuting) times!

I've been out and bought my return ticket this afternoon to save messing about first thing in the morning. I managed to get a return to Garforth*** for only £5, using my Senior railcard.

I'm sorry that you can't do the ride, @wanda2010 - I hope you enjoy the pub instead!

*** Cheaper than buying a single to Leeds and a separate single back from Garforth.
