Introduction

A nice flat, but interesting ride along the Calder and Hebble Navigation, and the river Calder, from Horbury bridge to Wakefield.

Conditions

Canalside paths, and some singletrack. Some footpaths are used, although plenty of people ride these paths and nobody seems to mind.

Narrative

My first proper night ride of the season. Conditions still nice and dry, but it does take a whole to get used to reading the trail in the dark, which resulted in a few near misses. Also the steeps between the M1 and the Navigation, which I can normally ride, foxed me in the dark.
