Canal ride: Royal Armouries / Allerton Bywater and back, via Temple Newsam

Louise arranged a very similar ride last Autumn. This one will be just tiny bit shorter at approx 16-18 miles.

Heading East from the Armouries, we will follow the canal path to Allerton Bywater. Then heading off the canal path, using the quietest of roads possible, we will head to Temple Newsam and then back into Leeds using cycle paths.

We'll stop for refreshments at Temple Newsam.

Route suitable for a sturdy tourer, hybrid or mountain bike. 

This is a link to our meeting spot at the Armouries.

Hopefully, it won't snow or be blowing a gale, like the last two meetups!

    Thank goodness for that Gary. The weather for the last two rides has been awful. (Mind you, it is spring now, and they were in winter.)

    ... tomorrow, I'll send round an email with my mobile number. If you want to phone me just before you set off, to check our progress that might be a good idea too. - Mat

    Hi Stephen,

    Okay, let's see if we can coordinate things. I've marked this map with a suitable meeting point - Queen Street. http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?saddr=53.753837,-1.394849&hl=en&sll=53.753938,-1.394148&sspn=0.029383,0.055189&t=h&mra=mift&mrsp=0&sz=14&z=14
    It's a bit of a guess really as to how long it will take us to get there from the Armouries. If we set off just after 11, I reckon that we should be there for about 12:30. ...

    As I live in Castleford is there any chance I can meetup with you in Allerton Bywater? if so do you have any idea what sort of time and where abouts I could meet you?

    Vicky, the ride will be flat - half of it is alongside a canal. Come along. This ride will be relaxed and informal. We won't go at a very fast pace and we'll wait.

    Cheers, Gary. 10:30 it is.

    Yes, shot of pre cycle caffeine should do the trick. I like this route too.

    If anyone wants to meet at the Armouries at 10:30 for a coffee before we set off, then let me know.
