West Yorkshire Folk Music Cycle Ride Day 1

29 September 2015

The Ride Starts at Guiseley Station which is one stop from Leeds station on the Ilkley Line, getting you nicely out of the city and close to the Sustrans cycle route along the Leeds Liverpool Canal towards Skipton.

It will be in Sheffield on Wednesday and I’m looking forward to some happy days getting my recumbent muscles to work and thinking about setting the bike up for touring 5 days with guitar and luggage. (more…)
