    Hi, i know its quite short notice and dont really know who to ask...

    Tomorrow i am looking to get back on my bike and currently living in leeds. Want to get back into 10 miles a day as im getting lazy...

    Was thinking of a 30 ish mile ride tomorrow in the west yorkshire area. Can anyone recommend any places to go, i wouldnt mind driving somewhere but would like some good routes/places to go.

    PS i have a specialized sirrus hybrid bike so off road is out of the question


    thanks for any advice

    There is the trans pennine trail. I go to Ladybower but thats a fair treck for you. I used to go over Dunford Bridge way but don`t get out much now with my young daughter to look after

    trans pennine trail looks really good actually. might give it a go next weekend although it looks like i might struggle without a mountain bike.

    its flat but can be soft in places I did dunford bridge to penisone once, its slightly up hill there and wasn`t too bad (after a knee op) but coming back the ground had thawed out and was harder work downhill !!!!!
