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.

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...

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?
