Cycle Steps
1. Ideal as both a training route for roadies or a slower weekend ride for touring bikes. Starting from Headingley, this route takes the best country roads out to Pool, then onto Leathley and across Sandwith Moor. *There are many narrow, winding roads to explore in this area through hamlets and forest.* A climb to Stainburn Forest, before a very fast descent, with sweeping corners, to Lindley Wood Reservoir. Back to Otley, then a long but gradual climb up past Chevin country park. Finally rolling back to Leeds via Cookridge and the Otley Road. 3 good climbs in total, on good roads with great views of Wharfedale and the surrounding areas.
