On the very edge of the vast Pennine Hills chain, cycling in Bradford and its impressive surroundings leads you up into diverse moorland and you’ll find the landscape opening up under your wheels. Just south of the wild Yorkshire Dales National Park and the rolling countryside of Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this historic city provides access to some of the most exquisite scenery for rides in the north.
Cycle routes from Bradford are often hilly, with trails winding over moorland and down into wooded river valleys. You’ll find pretty villages wherever you pedal, like the incredible Haworth with its cobbled streets and classic stone buildings, formerly home to the Brönte sisters.
For flat routes, follow the Aire valley, passing sweeping farmland and admiring the hills. The Leeds and Liverpool Canal passes through Bradford and makes for a serene, traffic-free companion for day and multi-day rides.
