This is a cycling Forum, not an anti-car Forum (I think) so I hope he /she enjoys the excellent ride up to the Tan Hill Inn and back. But I am pretty sure there are half decent routes between Reeth and the Vale of York, possibly via Leyburn. Adds at least one hill and a lot more miles though. I can see how the shorter route starting and finishing at Reeth appeals. I've parked up and got bikes off the roof of the car there myself on one occasion.
You only need to read a few threads posted on a daily basis on here to be forgiven for thinking otherwise.
I'm anti-car, even though I use one. I think it's the only logical position to take up in 2018 in the western world. It's a reaction against the out-of-control pro-car situation that we find ourselves in. A few adjustments and I could find myself being very accepting of car use. But not as things stand.
My position on car use is not the opposite to yours, but I am less concerned about the negatives and more appreciative of the positives. And there are positives. Maybe you live in a city and I don't, and maybe the roads you cycle are busier than the ones I use. There must be a reason for our different perspectives.
