Intermediate Ride to Castleford

An easy paced (about 12mph on the flat) mainly flat ride using a variety of traffic free cycle routes which are nearly all well surfaced.   First south to Methley for an early elevenses stop at Rivers Meet cafe (12 miles), then to Castleford where we cross the River Aire by the 'wavy' bridge before heading home via Allerton Bywater, Garforth, Barwick, Thorner (possibility of pub stop) and Shadwell.  Not suitable for ultra thin tyred bikes.

Intermediate Ride to Knaresborough

Ride to Knaresborough 35 miles with one stop planned in Knaresborough, not sure where so recommendations welcome.
 
Meet Old Tram Terminus, Princes Avenue, Roundhay 9:30 am
Route will go out via Eccup, so lazy riders in North Leeds could meet us at Slaid Hill or Eccup.
Return route via Wetherby and over Linton Bridge which is scheduled to re-open 2 September.  The climb out of Collingham may defeat me, so be ready to wait whilst I walk up this.
