I'm parked outside the saddlers shop where the lovely Dora bought Coppers blanket in Episode 2 The Four-Legged Hat

The harewood village hall where Dora went to a disco in Episode 6 The Challenge, I've kept the engine running Dora if you want a lift back to Follyfoot >95<  ;)

This is Swindon lane, which leads to Kirkby Overblow.

I'm parked in the layby where steve rides through a gate (top picture gate on the right) on Ron's bike as he heads back to the farm in Episode 4 Shadow.

In the second picture behind my bike you can see the gate that Ron climbed over after his bike broke down racing with Lewis in a different scene of Shadow.

This is nothing to do with Follyfoot but it's just up the road from Clapgate and I thought the view was stunning  :D

Great to see the old haunts again - it does seem right, somehow, to do it on a motorbike!   ;)

Put it on your bucket list Loopy, it's really enjoyable  >116<  :)

I was ten when I watched Ron and Steve riding motorbikes around some of these roads  :) I never thought one day I'd be doing the same  >41<

All I'm missing now is Dora on the back  :D
