THE JO COX WAY 2021 - Day One - Part 1: Cleckheaton to Horbury Bridge (West Yorkshire)
The Jo Cox Way is a five-day, 280-mile bike ride in memory of Jo Cox MP, returning for its 6th year to celebrate Jo’s life, her beliefs and all the good work that goes on in communities up and down the UK.
Over sixty cyclists will be setting off on Wednesday 28th July in West Yorkshire and riding to London, finishing at the Flat Iron Square, London on Sunday 1st August.
Please come and jump on a bike and pedal alongside us for part of the route and show your support by cheering the cyclists on their way.
The route has been broken into manageable day sections, join in the fun and celebrate group cycling.
We will be gathering in Princess Mary Stadium for a welcome event, with media. Jo’s sister Kim Leadbetter will be there. After riding around the track several times, a large group participation led ride will head out onto the Spen Valley Greenway. A safe traffic free ride takes us along National Cycle Network route 69 to Huddersfield Road. Riders wanting to press on can cross to the Calder Valley Greenway riding along the River Calder to Mill Street West.
This is the 2nd turn back point for local riders. The route passes through Saville Town and connects up with the Dewsbury to Ossett Greenway popping out at Westfield St. We are now on roads with traffic and head on to our end point for the 9 mile ride at the Horse and Jockey Pub at Horbury Bridge
