Victoria Park Gates, last entrance on Cleckheaton Road
This is an easy-going 4.8 mile route on the Spen Valley Greenway between Bradford and Cleckheaton. This greenway boasts great views and trailside sculptures in a traffic-free environment, starting out at Victoria Park on Cleckheaton Road in Bradford. The greenway follows the path of the former Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway – keen-eyed individuals can spot the LYR boundary stones and other artefacts from this line. It has recently been converted into a dedicated cycle track, part of Sustrans’ National Cycle Network Route 66, from Dewsbury to Low Moor. The current track is a freshly laid one and is a nice, steady route with not too many uphill challenges.
This ride uses part of National Cycle Network (NCN) route 66. 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).
