We was going up by train with Ann & David P from Kings Cross & meeting a few others from the LBC that are from "up north" Checking the weather for York it was saying it would rain in the late afternoon but the temperature wouldn't be too bad.
Arriving at Kings Cross a little early I took the chance to take a shot of the great roof of the station.

Having arrived at York Station we met up with the rest of the LBC gang. Alan & Janet K, Alan B, Phil A, Debbie M, Ian J. Introductions and then we started to head out of the station.
We was going to do the York Orbital route lead by the navigational Jedi Master David P
Across the Lendal Bridge just around the corner we came up to York Minster Church & had to have a little photoshoot of the gang.

The forecast rain started to fall and everyone got into their waterproofs.

We past the York Minster Church again and some of us decided to go inside to take a few photos.
Alan K tried on a cool looking tiger helmet which would have looked good with his Brompton as it has tiger stripes on too, pity is a kids size though ;)

Me, Ann & David P had come down by train but everyone else had drove. We said our goodbyes as the London trio had to hang about the station waiting for our train back to London.
We was going to go on a short ride around the station to kill time but then the rain started to come down hard again so we stayed in the warm station pub.

Soon our train arrived and we lined up to get on the train back to London, lucky it wasnt too full and it was non stop to London, Kings Cross

Another good ride with the LBC will have to come up to York again in summer I think to get a really good look at the city and all the old buildings and land marks.
