What other riders think of this route

Sky Ride Local in Bradford

If you're fairly confident on your bike on dirt and gravel surfaces and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, our Off-Road Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills along the way, there is barely a metre of tarmac in sight on these rides so come and enjoy the scrunch of gravel and the squelch of mud under your tyres with us! Rides are between 6 and 15 miles long, at a moderate pace of between 7 and 10 miles an hour.

This ride has something for everyone with a trip through Calverley Woods (mentioned in the Doomsday Book) and plenty of historic ruins to see. You will feel like you are out in the wilderness, whilst all-the-while being in the middle of two big northern cities! This is a great introduction to off-road cycling being mostly flat and just over 5 miles so come and join us!
