Episode 050: Cycling The Way Of The Roses

To celebrate its 50th episode, Andrew P. Sykes takes The Cycling Europe Podcast out on the cycle path and travels from Morecambe on Lancashire’s west coast to the county’s historical capital at Lancaster, across the Pennines and through Yorkshire via Settle and Ripon, completing his trip in that county’s historical capital at York. The Way of the Roses is a route of contrasting landscapes and, at times, challenging terrain; join Andrew (and his bicycle Wanda) as they spend three days following one of northern England’s most popular cycle routes. The music is composed and played by Rob Ainsley. More of Robโ€™s music can be found on his websiteย  ย  ย

  1. Loved the podcast – that middle day is fair old up and down! One (small?!) issue. You refer several times to Wensleydale. The route goes nowhere near there- you mean Wharfedale. (I live in Wharfedale, so this did rather jar!).

What do you think?
