Setting out from Weston Lane opposite Ashfield Primary School in Otley, you’ll head through Askwith past Ilkley Lido and Addingham and on to Wandsworth Wood stopping at The Cavendish Pavilion Cafe before heading back, taking in some lovely views of Bolton Abbey and surrounding countryside. This is a great route to boost confidence on quiet roads while taking in plenty of gorgeous scenery. There are more cyclists than cars on this route and sometimes more sheep than cyclists!

This is not a beginner ride, because there are plenty of hills and due to this we recommend a road bike or a hybrid. However, there is an option to join us for the 13.5 mile, shorter route starting at Ilkley Lido at 10.20 am. If you have not ridden this route before, it would be advisable to try the shorter route on your first outing with us. Please text me if that is where you will be joining us on 07766041644.

We are usually back at Otley at around 1.30 pm.

P.S. If BBC weather forecast heavy rain the ride may be cancelled.
