Knottingley Sports Centre
Hill Top A645
A great ambling route around quiet roads in well tended villages and fields. Starting from Knottingley Sports Centre, the proximity of the busy M62 and the PowerStation’s that dominate the skyline seem miles away as the direction of the route explores the peaceful roads between Knottingley and Selby. The outward Journey heads along the National route 62, over the runways of RAF Burn and along the towpath towards Selby where the halfway point is reached at the beautiful Selby Abbey. The return leg steers past two lovely wooded areas - Brayton Barff and Hambleton Hough on peaceful lanes. Although the route is just over 30 miles the majority of the route is fairly flat so is perfect for anybody who is looking to increase their distance but not tackle many climbs.
This ride uses part of National Cycle Network (NCN) route 62. To find out more about the NCN and other great places to cycle near you everyday, go to the Sustrans website (http://www.sustrans.org.uk/ncn/map/national-cycle-network).
