Does anyone have directions for this route???

I would really like to do it but might get lost.

Thanks in advance

Please be careful on Gawthorpe Lane @ Kirkhamgate. Heavily used by horse riders as it is a bridleway - keep your speed down particularly until you get under the motorway bridge. Also farm vehicles and you don't want to get caught up in a combine~! There have been several near misses recently

Did the route on Sunday afternoon (4hrs). Bought the map from Pugneys for £1, one of the recommended starting points and went anticlockwise as recommended. The route was well signed and I only refered to the map twice. in each case if I had kept going forward it was correct.
Will do it again when my legs recover.

A great cycle route developed and signed by the volunteers who make up the Wakefield Cycle Forum - Well done! I have completed the route many times so far the quickest time was 2h 23m but its not a race so please take it easy and watch out for walkers. I have also walked it in 11 h - recommend sticking to the cycling!
