Cycle Steps
1. From the town centre, there is a big hill up to Osset. The road then heads into Horbury, which is a really nice little village. Head over Horbury Bridge before tackling another big hill up to Emley Moor Tops. This is then followed by a massive downhill and a chance to get your breath back. Ride on into Huddersfield and you will have a pretty flat run till you get to Ravensthorpe. As an alternative, you could cheat and take the Green Way on the right of the bridge.
