    i have never posted in this bit before...
    having recently moved to harrogate from london i often hear murmers of how good biking in ilkley is, i've got no idea where to go could any of my cycling brothers and sisters recomend where i need to go?
     
  2. Otley is the place for cyclists, just down the Wharfe Valley from Ilkley. It's my home town (not that I live there any more). Either go to Dunny's Cafe at the end of the bridge over the river on a Saturday lunchtime, or drop into Chevin Cycles opposite the Junction at the other end of town. They'll see you right.
    There's loads of good cycling round there.

    Have cycled through Ilkley a few times on route to or from Skipton, some killer hills though.
     
  4. What's your interest Jules? MTB or road? How far do you want to go?

    Let me congratulate you on moving form a really bad place to a great place THE NORTH !

    People have CULTURE up here - where humans actually TALK to each other, things MORE RELAXED: you've made the best move of your life...!

    PS: I'm sure youve noticed the HILLS and MOUNTAINS in the north, now !!!

    RUDDY Excellent! Good to hear life is nice & rosy - the Gunners deserve it!

    All well here in rural parts - well, apart from the offspring having a nasty dose of man 'flu-lurgy-type-bug. But he's young & fit, so he'll survive!
