Roundhay to Harewood via Eccup Reservoir

Cycle Ride from Roundhay to Harewood, via Eccup Reservoir. 

Let's meet outside The Roundhay Fox 11:00-11:15am. Cycle ride to commence at 11:15am.

Starting from The Roundhay Fox, we'll ride up to Eccup Reservoir and then along the path that goes to 'Emmerdale', through the Harewood estate until we get to the Harewood Arms. Here we can stop for some refreshments.

From Harewood we'll ride back the way we came, back to Roundhay. (Normally we'd do a circular route but it's not really possible from the Harewood Arms, as we'd have to use the busy main road to get back to Wike.)

The path is quite rough in places, so a mountain bike is probably best for this one. Or a durable hybrid. 

This will be an easy, gentle cycle ride. We'll go at the pace of the slowest rider.

    Simply breathtaking meetup. My favourite part was when we narrowly avoided certain death from those falling rocks, although the bit where that grizzly bear jumped out from behind a bush wearing nothing but a toga?! was thrilling also. If this is the level of entertainment on cycle rides with this bunch, will come again for sure!

      Hi Tom, this group is a mixture, so you should fit in very well on your mtb. The rides can vary, but this one will be at an easy pace. Mat
