Gerri will lead along Wykebeck Valley Way - a mainly off-road route on good cycle paths to Temple Newsam for a refreshment stop and then back via Temple Moor to rejoin the Wykebeck Valley Beck in Primorose Valley.
Out through the City Centre passing near Temple Newsam. Mainly good tarmac cycling paths through and beyond the Centre. Pass under the M1 on a quiet road to the Aire /Calder navigation and through St Aidan’s nature reserve to Allerton Bywater. Compact ground covered with a fine gravel but ok for road bikes. Limited options for a coffee stop. Possibility at Carlton View Sandwich Bar (13 Miles) - good value breakfast type fare. Continuing on tracks and quiet roads to Fairburn Ings. Sandwiches, flapjacks and coffee machine here. Return to Kippax then more off-road to Garforth, Cross Gates.
