Cycling in Bronte Country
With its varied terrain and challeging ascents the Bronte Country area of West Yorkshire and East Lancashire is popular with road cyclists and mountain bikers alike.
Relatively easy recreational cycle routes include the Great Northern Trail (a disused railway line which is now in use as a cycle route and public bridleway) and the towpath of the Leeds Liverpool canal between Shipley and Keighley.
In July 2014 the region hosted the Grand Depart of the Tour de France (pictured above in Haworth village) followed by the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire in May 2015, bringing recognition of cycling in the Bronte Country area and Yorkshire to the international level..
