Cycling Route 66: Under The Sun

In my part of the north – West Yorkshire – it’s the Calder Valley Cycleway and follows the Rochdale Canal.

But today was the first time in my living memory that I’ve been able to cycle from the canal summit near Todmorden all the way to Hebden Bridge. In recent years there has always been some diversion or other that throws you back on to the main road. But not today! Joy! And here’s the video to prove it.
