Introduction

A long ride across the former coalfields, using offroad where possible

Conditions

Quiet roads, and the odd bit of cycletrack and bridleway

Narrative

Heading east was easy, as the tailwind made for fast riding. Once I got to Ackworth, the return leg into the teeth of the strong winds was very hardwork indeed. I was glad of the easy and sheltered riding along the old railway from Royston to Crigglestone.
