Bike Route: From the city to the countryside

Bike Route: From the city to the countryside

One of the things I’ve always loved about Leeds is the fact that while it houses everything you could ever wish for in a city, you can be out in beautiful rolling countryside in no time at all. As such, I started this week’s ride at the railway station and was soon tackling a really nice, varied loop skirting the West and North Yorkshire border.

Bike Route: Hills are back with a vengeance

Bike Route: Hills are back with a vengeance

After taking a flat route last week I made sure the climbs were back with a vengeance this time around as I took on one of my favourite rides into the heart of Brontë Country. It’s a 57km (35 mile) loop which starts and finishes in Haworth and takes a very brief sojourn into Lancashire before dropping into Hebden Bridge and back over Oxenhope Moor.

Nostalgia on Tuesday: Age of the tram

On Saturday January 31, 1903, Rotherham was added to the list of municipalities boasting their own electric tramways. Two sections of the corporation’s comprehensive scheme were successfully opened by Ald. Winter JP, the chairman of the Electric Light and Tramways Committee. By invitation members of the council, magistracy, school board, and corporation officials, numbering 200, assembled in the car sheds which had been erected near Rotherham’s Great Central Railway station. The single and double deck tramcars and the arrangement of the building were greatly admired. It was commented that within a radius of 150 yards of the shed there were four of the best known methods of traction that included conveyance by canal, by ‘old time looking’ omnibus, by railway and by electric tram.
