A record of my cycling trips in Britain and abroad


The Trans-Pennine Trail (TPT)

The Trans-Pennine Trail, Leeds to Sheffield section
(also known as Sustrans route 67)

Distance: very approximately 80 km from my house (about 10 km north of Leeds centre) to Sheffield

I’ve ridden this bit of the Trans-Pennine Trail (or TPT, as it’s shortened to on some signs) twice now; and neither time has been hugely succesful! It’s not that my rides have been unsuccessful, but both times it’s taken me much longer than expected. The first time, I put this down mostly to getting lost, which happened a few times, and having to stop to check the map frequently. The second time, I knew where I was going, and tried to keep moving quickly, but I didn’t manage to go much faster overall.
