West Yorkshire (UK) Bicycle Tour of Folk Music Clubs


The first essay in what may become an important feature of The Map to promote sustainable tourism that includes local live music.
This route joins up 5 folk clubs in the former West Riding of Yorkshire, one each day from Monday to Friday. They are all weekly clubs so this can be ridden most weeks of the year.

I rode this route as a tryout during week commencing 21 September 2015 and enjoyed it greatly. As a result I’ve refined the route, written a detailed set of blog posts about it and provided maps and gps track for anybody who would like to follow it. It’s all here:

Accommodation. There is bed and breakfast and hotel accommodation near each of the clubs but unfortunately only a couple of convenient campsites.
