Almondbury Sports Centre, Almondbury High School
Fernside Avenue, Almondbury
This is a fantastic route taking in some of the finer views of Huddersfield. Starting in Almondbury, at the Sports Centre, the route soon enables glimpses of Castle hill before heading onto Farnley Tyas and looping around the beautiful surrounding villages. As with the majority of Kirklees to get anywhere you have to get up to the top in the first place and this ride is no different. Once the initial climb is out of the way the route pretty much stays on the tops which is where we are able to appreciate the best of the views. On the way back there is a chance to stop at Castle Hill. This route is not to be missed by anybody wanting to take their recreational cycling a little further in terms of distance and hills.
