I rode this yesterday. Loved the part where you're going along the prom, however the route has a couple of problems -

Wholesome Lane is a private road, and blocked by a locked gate - as is Wyke Wood Lane. I'd suggest abandoning this part of the route, and instead continuing up the A570 to Snape Green, and following Wyke Cop Road and then Wyke Lane. That alternation should also mean the whole route is doable on a racer.

Wholesome Lane doesn't even appear on this route Dave?

You turn right as soon as you have gone over the canal at 3 pools.

Hi Graham - looks like the route author has updated the map after my comments.
