Re: West Yorkshire Cycle Route

Welcome to the forum.

Listed on cycle.travel, I can't vouch for the accuracy (no reason to doubt it either).

If paper is more your thing then the Visit Leeds website guides you to ask at West Yorkshire tourist information centres.

I believe the idea is to highlight problems, not so much to make Sustrans aware (their review was thorough) as to provide evidence of support for remedial work. It may of course just be a form of on-line voodoo.

Re: Kissing Gates

... surely there are better barrier gates for cyclists? There are no barriers that allow access for cycles but prevent access for motorcycles. Whilst illegal and anti-social use of paths should be dealt with by enforcement, not restricting access for those who should have legitimate access, it's si...

Re: Correct name for a cycle path

Rail property has always been exempt from PROW creation. A lot of public footpaths run up to a level crossing from either side but the crossing itself is never part of the PROW. I think not. A few years ago Network Rail closed a nearby level crossing as there was no PRoW on the definitive map over ...

Re: Changing Gear Ratio

Welcome to the forum.

It would be useful to know more about your current set up.

What chainset are you using, BCD, number of teeth on chainrings, type of bottom bracket?

Freewheel or cassette, how many sprockets, smallest and largest?

Front and rear shifters, make and models?

Re: North Downs Way

Has anyone ridden any of this route? I've ridden the Wrotham to Charing sections often enough to be familiar with them, choices seem reasonable if you want to follow the NDW and aren't going to go footpathing. I've also ridden a fair amount of the Charing to Ashford section (largely on road) and a ...
