This is a fantastic completely traffic free route along the picturesque Calder and Hebble Canal.  Starting at Dewsburys Crow Nest Park the route heads down to the Spen Valley Greenway and after continuing over the River Calder the route utilises the towpath of the Calder and Hebble Navigation.  At 6 miles on a flat surface this route is perfect for families, new and lapsed cyclists who want to enjoy being on the bike in the safest of environments.  With a natural stopping point on the canal for a breather and some refreshments before heading back to to Crow Nest Park.  The park hosts an adventure playground, Bowling green, Cafe,  Greenhouse with Fernery, Museum, Ornamental gardens and Ornamental lake to name just a few.
