Im from North Leeds, and theres some nice routes that can start you off in Roundhay park, take you out through shadwell, alwoodley,wike,east keswick to harewood. Then you can work back in again.
All fairly sedate "nice stuff" but you can venture off the tracks abit.
Used to ride it every weekend.
If your keen I can have a go at plotting the route for you.
And the tea-and-cake shop at the golf course here
is (or at least was) welcoming to mountainbikers.
Yup..been there many a time.... Growing up next to Roudhay park then moving out to Alwoodley gave me lots of space to ride in...love it around there and still hit the route when I manage to go back and take a bike with me.
the short stretch of singletrack betweenWike & Brandon Hall still brings a smile every time I hit it at speed.
