WEST YORKSHIRE

 

Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield


The West Yorkshire Cycle Route 150 miles, circular


Primarily for leisure cycling, the route is mainly on road and is intended for use by all roadworthy bicycles. The West Yorkshire Cycle Route has recently been re-established and re-signposted. It is signed in both clockwise and anti-clockwise directions and is identified by the route logo -a white rose with the initials `WYCR' on a green background. The route can be tackled in a series of day rides using local train services to get to or travel home from your most convenient start or finish point. The whole route takes the cyclist through the best of West Yorkshire's landscapes and towns.The western sections offer the most challenging riding through the Pennine hills around Marsden, Hebden Bridge and Haworth. Then, from Bronte country the route passes into Airedale and visits Ilkley and Menston. More leisurely cycling can be found in Wharfedale as the route calls in at Bramhope and Wetherby before turning south towards Garforth, Castleford and Pontefract. It continues through the rolling, rural landscape around Hemsworth, West Bretton and Denby Dale before returning westward once more to Holmfirth and the Pennine moors.
