Did this Liverpool to Leeds a couple of weeks ago, 129 miles, really enjoyed it but in places the path is poor. Read my account at my blog http://www.mickdrake.com

I cycled 7 1/2 miles from the Liverpool end up to Netherton. The number of shady hoodies lurking everywhere was unpleasant. Surface was rough (on 28mm tyres) at anything over 10mph. Had to swerve to avoid broken bottles, discarded clothing, skol super tins (that was when I could see through the clouds of cannabis smoke). Some steep cobbled paths were... More

I cycled along the canal to Shipley. Very peaceful and interesting. Was able to see a range of countryside and cycle into towns if I wanted a coffee break.

Lovely place to walk along and see how developments have taken place. Obviously helps if it's sunny. Good bars along the way.

The canal is wonderful and it is possible to visit and undestand its surrounding towns and green areas from a different point of view. We met many people jogging and going home, after work, by bycicle. Next time we absolutely want to visit the area by bike... More

Everything was perfect. It was wonderful watching how the locks were used, the skill with which they were used and a real sense of history. This... More

It is a very nice place to go for a walk or run. Initially it is a bit industrial, but after a mile or so the surroundings become distinctly rural and very charming. I was lucky to see some barges passing through the manually operated lock gates.

Having recenlty purchase Hybrid bikes for myself and my partner, we have only just found the time, during the lovely summer weather which we have had, to go on a cycle ride. We mounted the bikes onto our car and drove out towards Skipton, parked up and rode along the canal to East Marton, which was lovely, stunning views across... More
