The West Yorkshire Cycle Route is a 150 mile circular route which roughly follows the West Yorkshire County Boundary. Primarily for leisure cycling the route is mainly on road and is intended for use by all roadworthy bicycles.
The route is signed in both clockwise and anti-clockwise directions, and is identified by the route logo, a white rose with green background.
Terrain varies greatly from the flat rolling farmlands in the northeast, rising quite steeply to the western sections in the Pennine hills.
The route reflects this contrast and each section is graded; easy, moderate or strenuous, according to the steepness of the section.
- Sections graded easy are predominantly flat and suitable for cyclists of all ages and abilities.
- Sections graded strenuous include steep climbs and will challenge even fit cyclists.
