Canal Bike Ride Rodley to Leeds and back!

After the success of the Group Bike Ride to Saltaire the other week, I thought I would put up another ride to try and get the momentum going. We would meet in the same place at the swing bridge in Rodley but this time head towards Leeds along the canal towpath passing Kirkstall Abbey, Armley Mills, Granary Wharfe. Stopping in Leeds for coffee/tea and cake - any suggestions would be most welcome then heading back to Rodley with a stop at the Abbey Inn in Horsforth/Bramley. The towpath is flat however can be a bit bumpy so the ride would be best suited to Hybrids/Mountain bikes. Matt, maybe you could put this up on your sports group to generate more interest? All riders welcome!

    Thanks Amy. You got me on my bike for the first time in over a year. And a really lovely day for a ride. Had forgotten how much like riding on the canal. Jan

    Hi Weather permitting ie not raining I am intending to meet up, however I want to meet you at Kirkstall on the tow path just after the student flats. There is a low bridge over the canal and then an open space with a couple of seats next to a car park for walkers on the tow path. I will meet you there. I will be there from 11.20. I have Amy's phone number and hope that I will not cause any problems. I may have to wait a little as I think it will take more than 20 mins for you to meet, set off and cycle to the Kirkstall bridge by the old brewery.

    See you tomorrow.

    Greetings Amy, I'd like to come as its a nice easy ride that I do regularly and I only live up the road from Rodley. However I wont put my name down at the moment as whenever I make a plan to do something I find out that something else crops up meaning I have to cancel my original plans! If I'm going to come on the day I will put my name down the night before. At the moment, weather permitting I should be able to make it!

    Yes there are lots of spaces to park by the Rodley Barge pub. The ride is 12 miles. 6 miles to Leeds and then back.

    More likely to come on the rough terrain rides, as against road rides. Not knowing the local area ... roughly how far is the route ?
