see rob atkin ben, he haunts those parts and may know some trails in and around.

for now i will run with whatever is announced. im sure things will be clearer when the clocks go forward and the sap rises :wink:


I could come up with a route around Holmfirth.... up towards the moors, a couple of do-able short rocky descents and some long easy (for you guys) climbs with great views.

It's be like a mini Peaks ride as the terrain is pretty similar. There is some singletrack stuff but it's cheeky and so I don't like riding it so would give it a miss - my mate rides it but I won't.

Lots of tea shops - fish and chips are great round there.

If there is any interest I could put a route together of about 10-15 miles.

I would bring free buns made by my lovely wife.

I'm not tempted by a lack of singletrack but might be interested in your lovely wife's buns. :wink:

Going for a ride out on Sunday short notice but your more than wellcome to come along. Ride put together by a friend who is trying to kill me, aprox 30miles, mixed from easy to very hard ups and moderate fast downs.

Keighley Canal to Shipley to up to Shipley Glen - Pass Acorn pub at Eldwick - Upto Dick Hudson - Opposite dick hudson up Ilkley moor - Over ilkley moor and down the otherside to Whitewells - From Whitewells along passed swastika stone to addingham moorside - Over Addingham moorside down into High moor woods - Into Holden Gate - East Morton - Down to 5 rise locks area and Canal, somthing like that :shock:

With places like UpperThong and NetherThong and Totties.
Sound like it should be good.

It's hour and half from here and there are plenty of Leeds area that can make it

This weeks ride was a bit more like winter, all ice & snow
but with no wind.
We returned to Reeth to test a new route but day light and weather were against us.
