Cycle Steps
1. Just a long bike ride, Ilkley town centre can be very busy indeed plus Harewood Avenue heading towards Harewood House is busy on show days. Most of the first half of this ride is on country roads, but the second half is on the A65 which can be busy, but I found it ok. The A65 heading towards Coniston Cold from the A59 can be some hard as it's only a A class trunk road not a duel carriage way, most of the car and lorry drivers passed me with good road manors.
Landmarks/Sites to see?
With this bike ride been in the country I did not see any bike shops only Woodrups on Kirkstall Road, but there were a few shops to call in for cold drinks plus a few petrol stations if I needed the toilet.
