    My manager lives in Elland and I am often down in Halifax for work and looking at the terrain I can easily imagine that there are some cracking places to ride.

    Maybe I should take my MTB down with me the next time I go down for work??
  • Here is one i have found, its Hudersfield and Halifax, not been out with them yet but do intend on doing ....

    Also Pedal Sport do a ride from Elland Cricket Club on Thursdays about 7pm .... (i think they still run it) ....

    But as said before there are loads of different trails ... depends really what type of riding you want ...

    Just found this website and joined up .... https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/Moun ... rk_t=group not a club as such but it is a start if there are rides to be organised etc ....

    Worth a look ....
  • Thanks Cubby, have just signed up.....
  • Hey there, VS Cycles in Brighouse town centre do a ride out one night of the week, you could always pop in and ask them about it if you're setting off from Brighouse anyway.

    I live in Halifax and I've found quite a nice route that sets off from Ogden Water, heads up to Withens and then drops back down to Ogden again.
