This enabled us to see a previously unknown to us, part of Leeds We rode anti clockwise through Meanwood to begin with and the route is quite hilly. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely sights on the way. Thanks. Whoever rated it 3/10 must be considerably fitter than us though!!!!!

I'm glad you enjoyed the route. It is a favourite of mine for a quick ride on an evening. I wouldn't fancy doing it in reverse like you did though - coming down Headingley Lane seems like such a waste of altitude.

I think the 3/10 rating is based on length - I uploaded the route from a GPS log, and didn't get chance to give it a time or a difficulty rating.
