Canal Tow Path Ride - Rodley to Saltaire, and back.

Meet: 11am for an 11:15am start.

Time to get things going again with this gentle paced canal path ride.

It's an easy, flat cycle ride along the Leeds Liverpool Canal from Rodley to Saltaire and back. Cycling at a moderate pace, with an overall distance of approx 12 miles.

Meeting at the Swing Bridge in Rodley, just beyond the Rodley Barge Pub at 11am for an 11:15am start.

At Saltaire we'll stop for some refreshments.

The route is almost completely flat, but the tow path is a bit rough in places so probably best suited to hybrids/mountain bikes.

(This was previously advertised as a ride from Rodley to Bingley, but it's now Rodley to Saltaire - a shorter distance.)

Everyone welcome!

    Hi everyone - looking forward to the cycle ride tomorrow. The weather forecast is looking decent! Just thought I'd confirm the location where we're meeting. It's where Canal Road and Bridge Road cross, in Rodley. I've marked the location on this map. http://goo.gl/maps/qAEu0

    I will be starting from Horsforth (where I live now) so whether I will make it all the way to Bingley depends on how tired my legs get!

      ... thanks for the info, Amy. That does sound much better. I was about to change it... then I though about Fink Hill car park - that's handy for a drink afterwards too. What do you think?

      Just keep the details the same. If the ride is popular could do it again from a different point.

      Hi Michael, I'll see what we can arrange. I'm sure some people would like a ride with an earlier start. And you're welcome to post something up yourself and see what sort of response you get. I know there's quite a wide variety of cyclists within the group. - Mat

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
