Temple Newsam

This is a lovely scenic route, starting from Fearnville Leisure Centre and heading up to the beautiful Roundhay Park before visiting the iconic Temple Newsam and back. The majority of the route is traffic free with plenty of things to see along the way including views of open farmlands, nice pond area, rolling hills and woodland paths to name just a few.

There are plenty of opportunities for stops along the route including the BMX track, Primrose valley. Roundhay park and the tea rooms at Temple Newsam. Who knew you could get all the way between Temple Newsam and Roundhay Park mainly off-road? Let’s go explore!

The majority of this route is suitable for all bikes but if you are having second thoughts about a road bike, leave it a home and come on something with fatter tyres.

This ride uses part of National Cycle Network (NCN) route 66. To find out more about the NCN and other great places to cycle near you everyday, go to the Sustrans website (http://www.sustrans.org.uk/ncn/map/national-cycle-network).
