Long Ride to Huddersfield 42 miles


Via CS3 and Churwell to Morley for quick brekky at Morrisons. Then via Batley, Spen Valley Greenway then NCN66 via Mirfield, Birkby-Bradley Greenway, to Huddersfield Open Market (Brook Street, HD1 1RY).  This is where Huddersfield is holding its 22nd St Patrick's Day Parade. (Yes, St Patrick's Day is 17th March, but they are holding the parade on 10th!)
I estimate we should arrive about 1215, in time to see some Irish dancing, The Parade itself starts at 1300 and finishes at 1335. There are food stalls (including vegan) at the Open Market. Alternatively there are lots of cafes in the town. I suggest we leave at 1400 and should get back to Headingley by 1615. 
Return route via Fixby, Rastrick, Cleckheaton, Spen Valley Greenway, Bierley, Thornbury, Stanningley.
