After leaving The Leggers Inn this ride travels along the traffic-free Ossett Greenway and then through Horbury, Green Lane, Pugneys, Painthorpe and Kettlethorpe. There are however other gradients along the way so be prepared to be challenged on occasions.
We will travel along a combination of greenways and tarmac roads. We will encounter a reasonable amount of traffic on the road sections so riders will need to be confident in those situations. Mountain bikes, hybrids and gravel bikes should be ok on this ride, though there is a short section along a canal bank.
There will be a toilet stop at Pugneys. Coffee may be taken after the ride if the café at The Leggers Inn has reopened.
Helmets are mandatory on all Kirklees Riders outings. Please bring a spare inner tube suitable for the tyres on the bike you are riding. If you are arriving by car you may need parking money if you intend to use The Leggers Inn car park. There is alternative roadside parking if the charges have been introduced. Regardless of the easing of Covid-related restrictions the simple rules we have adopted for our group rides will remain in place. Please also ensure you bring the anti-bacterial agents necessary to keep both yourself and your fellow riders safe throughout the ride. If you or any members of your family are showing COVID 19 symptoms, or self-isolating, please stay at home. I would also remind you that this is not a guided ride and that each participant remains responsible for their own actions or omissions at all times.
We never leave anyone behind
