In The Bleak Mid Winter: Cycling The Calder Valley In January

Rob Ainsley has been mentioned a few times recently. He’s the Yorkshire-based cyclist and writer for Cycling Plus with whom I’ve exchanged emails in the past few months. Last week we finally had the opportunity to meet up, in Halifax, as he cycled beside the River Calder from the border with Lancashire in the west to Castleford in the east of West Yorkshire. He has written about his cycle along the Calder – a journey taken over two days – and his slight detour to Halifax to meet me in three posts on his own website, suitably named ‘Yorkshire Ridings‘:
