Any good 75+ mile rides near Yorkshire, canals, trails etc
edited January 2015
Looking to get upto 75 mile rides on the mountain bike, trails, canal banks, road is fine. Anyone recommend any safe routes quite long around West Yorkshire thanks?
Hi I guess the most obvious one is Manchester to Leeds on the canal, quite a good guide here:
Thanks for that, just bought a boardman 29er so looking to get upto 75+ miles for training.
Hi, there's the Wakfield Circle which is sign posted. 75% off road and the rest is mainly quiet roads. It's only about 45 mile though. Just found a 146 mile circular ride of Yorkshire, headover to the Sustrans website for details on that. It will more than likely be on road though.
The trans pennine route is always a good ride. I go from around near Barnsley up to Leeds and back.
These are under 75 miles but maybe you could find a way of combining two routes or extending a loop?
