Bike ride to Bingley Five Rise Locks via  Saltaire Word Heritage site , this route takes in some of the most spectacular scenery on the Aire Valley Tow Path. The route takes you along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal passing some remarkable architecture in Saltaire  before heading to our final destination of Bingley 5 Rise Locks which again is a remarkable piece of our industrial  heritage. This ride uses part of National Cycle Network (NCN) route 66 and 696.
