Does anyone have directions for this route???

I would really like to do it but might get lost.

Thanks in advance

Please be careful on Gawthorpe Lane @ Kirkhamgate. Heavily used by horse riders as it is a bridleway - keep your speed down particularly until you get under the motorway bridge. Also farm vehicles and you don't want to get caught up in a combine~! There have been several near misses recently

Did the route on Sunday afternoon (4hrs). Bought the map from Pugneys for £1, one of the recommended starting points and went anticlockwise as recommended. The route was well signed and I only refered to the map twice. in each case if I had kept going forward it was correct.
Will do it again when my legs recover.

A great cycle route developed and signed by the volunteers who make up the Wakefield Cycle Forum - Well done! I have completed the route many times so far the quickest time was 2h 23m but its not a race so please take it easy and watch out for walkers. I have also walked it in 11 h - recommend sticking to the cycling!

Done this route 3 times now its a good ride through some of the best parts of countryside Wakefield has to offer and its a stiff test too. My best time so far is 3hr05 mins,bit more training and I should be able to get under 3hrs:-)

Although I only cycled half of the course (normanton,sharlston,nostel,Crofton,wintersett, Walton and then through Kirkhope. The signs are OK could be better though, still enjoyed the ride will be doing it again hopefully follow it further.

Just done this starting from Anglers Country Park (they were selling maps (£2), thank you!).
Really impressed that you have managed to put this together around what many would consider an urban area. Loads of rural/trail cycling.
Used hard-tail with full MTB tyres which made the tarmac sections labourious but would not recommend anyone does this on a road bike.
Great fun, thanks :)
