Starting point

LS16 8DQ

This rides starts in the tarmac parking area opposite Adel church bell tower. We carry straight on, across King Lane and onto Eccup Lane, and onto Eccup Moor Road, follow this road through the countryside, passing the YW treatment works on your left, then sharp right and up to the reservoir. We stop and take in the views. We carry straight on, and cross the main Leeds to Harrogate road by foot. We go up the path and around the back of GSAL onto Wigton Lane. We turn left . At the T junction, at the pub, we turn right and then left heading into Shadwell. We do a circular, relatively flat route around Shadwell heading back to the junction with Wigton Lane. We will call in at the Old Methodist Library cafe Shadwell. CASH ONLY. We will aim to arrive for opening time at11.30. The cafe is now a victim of its own success and gets very busy. We cross the traffic lights at the end of Wigton Lane on to the long Alwoodley Lane, to the end where we turn right on King Lane and then left back past Adel Mill and back to our starting point.
This ride is approx 14.5 miles. It is relatively flat but with a few short inclines along the way. It is perfect for women who wish to gain more confidence on the roads and who want to stretch themselves a little distance wise. Numbers are limited so that everyone feels comfortable with the group and we leave no one behind. Depeniding on timing we can add a square in shadwell..
open to any lady, whether a member of Leeds breeze or not.

This is a good ride for people progressing on from the Brownlee centre, who want some more experience on roads. The roads are generally quiet. there are a few left and right turn, and x roads, to practice. Depending on group capability we can extend the ride .

quiet roads around the back of adel, to eccup and then, if wished, on to Alwoodley.

bring your drink and biscuit for a stop at the reservoir.
