Family Cycle Club Ride Spen Valley

26th March 2017
How Do,
Cycle Budda Family Ride is going to take in the 7 mile long Spen Valley Cycleway.  So the whole ride will be 14 mile if we go to the end and back, but remember you could turn round at any point to adjust the route and the mileage to suit your family.  The route sounds really good, FLAT disused TARMAC railway line and the all important TRAFFIC FREE.  Checkout the text copied from the Sustrans website.  You can also download a PDF of the route and lots of useful information here
