Cache No’s 1907 to 1910 – Towpath Cyclo-cacheing

The following day, Sunday, I had a couple of hours spare in the late afternoon and as I had repaired the puncture in my bike tyre that I got riding over hawthorn hedge clippings when I was caching around York at the beginning of June, so I thought I ought to go cycling again. wanting somewhere flat to ride I decided upon the canal towpath betwee Apperley Bridge and Kirkstall as although I had cached along there a few times previously there were a couple of new caches to find

15th July 2012 – Hanging Tough: Hanging out with Ivy GC1KNDF – cache #1907
Lack of GPS signal under the trees meant I was glad of the hint to take me to the cache – and then glad that the cache was a totally different shade of green to the ivy so it stod out well

15th July 2012 – Harrisons Corner GC34111 – cache #1908
A sunny Sunday afternoon meant that the area was full of people, some walking the towpath, some sitting in the pub garden – but fortunately none of them were anywhere near where the cache was, so I could sort it out without having to be too careful to hide what I was doing

15th July 2012 – Morri 1 GC3D4A4 – cache #1909
This bit of the towpath is a popular place for caches, it’s the third different cache that’s been within a few yards of here in the last 3 years (see cache #84 GC1X9HA Canal Capers #4 – Stone Throne 29/08/09, and cache #901 GC2H55D RRR – Violet 24/10/10)
There was a lack of GPS lock under the trees, but the hint was pretty specific and there was a bit of a cachers trail to guide me in

15th July 2012 – Interpolated Roman Road Cache GC3EJ36 – cache #1910
On my way home I stopped off to grab this cache which although at the side of the road is not a drive by as there is nowhere to park for 500 yards… but as it was Sunday I could stop a bit nearer by parking in a warehouse gateway only 300 yards from the cache. The cache was enough to find under some stones by a gatepost, but it was another that I couldn’t put my name on as the log wass totally saturated and impossible to sign
