This weeks exercise took a small group, well a trio of Zeds into the magnificent North Yorkshire moors.
As we all dwell within the same postcode a local meet up point just North of Doncaster was chosen. With mixed weather a shame after the fantastic spring to date, so it was hoods up for the first stage of the run, taking us North bound towards the East coast through wonderful villages like Middleton on the wolds and the now famous village through the power of television "Wetwang". Although a B road, the stretch from Wetwang to Malton is a very pleasant stretch of smooth tarmac that flows very well. a very brief run on the A64 leads us to Eden camp then off towards Pickering then making our way to Whitby with a detour taking in a loop around and through Goathland. Avoided actually going through Whitby but headed off on the Coastal route to Scarborough. Managed to get all three zeds parked together in the centre of Scarborough on the harbour, currently free parking till the middle of the month. After the obligatory Fish and Chips followed by ice cream time to hit the road again, once again following the coastal road to Bridlington before heading home. 180 miles and 6 hours pure enjoyment, now that has got to be good for our health and well being

Ready for the off, 3 very rare Grey zeds (2 Stirling and 1 Space)

Spotted a Dark blue Z4 pass a we were stationary, no photo as was holding something else at the time

Leaving Goathland thought we would check our Handbrakes. Middle Z4 needs adjustment had Rob worried at the back

Some of the views a match for anywhere, truly is Gods own country

Residents didn't seem too bothered by us

Parking a bonus in a quiet Scarborough

Mixture of roof up and down throughout the day, the one thing no one can argue about is the power roof on the 4 compared with the 3! So easy to put up when the heavens open.

Terrific route - lovely part of the world ! You do have a knack for finding nice stretches of tarmac !
Not sure where our weekly run out will take us next week. Lincolnshire or The Derbyshire dales again. Living in quiet a central position opens also sorts of options.

Some good roads there Paul, we often go up to Rosedale - The White Horse pub, over Chimney Bank to Helmsley etc.
Fantastic roads and often empty.

Looked like a great day out.
Count me in if you do North Yorkshire again. You might have to PM me or something, as I always seem to read the forum too late!
