    Sustrans Route 67 goes from Leeds to Sheff (and beyond) – worth a look?

    minor roads from leeds to horbury bridge at wakefield, or i know a nice offroad route from hunslet.
    then follow the calder/derwnet walk which takes you offroad to the ladybower pub.
    it is cheeky but it is nice. 30 miles from horbury bridge to the ladybower.

    I work in central Leeds and have to get to a stag weekend in Hathersage. I fancy riding there.

    I’m happy with the southern end of the route – Strines or Snake – but does anyone know of any vaguely enjoyable, non-life threatening routes out of Leeds, probably towards Hud, on a road or cross bike?

    thanks

    Thanks for these. The Sustrans looks promising but a bit convoluted! I might use bits of it.

    Thanks Ton. 30 cheeky miles?! I don’t really do cheeky tbh but will have a look at the map.

    if you’re thinking Strines to Snake already a half decent route to the top end of Stocksbridge is:

    Osset, Horbury Bridge, Netherton, High Hoyland, Silkstone, Silkstone Common, Oxspring (or Thurgoland/Deepcar)

    ridden this way from Leeds a few times, far from flat though 😈
