Big Bike Challenge 2022
Route 66 - Oakenshaw to Huddersfield

Our NEW cycling challenge for 2022 is Route 66 - the Spen Valley Greenway!

Join us on a ride from Oakenshaw to Dewsbury, with the option to extend the route along the Calder Valley Greenway to Huddersfield.

We'll set off from Victoria Park, Oakenshaw at 9am on Sunday. Look out for the selection of sculptures along the route and enjoy the traffic-free cycling! We'll arrive at Mabey Car Park in Dewsbury at around 10am.

As this is your challenge, you can select your own distance and customise your route! Sign up for one of the below options:

Option 1 – Oakenshaw to Dewsbury (approx 10 miles)

We'll have marshalls en-route and finish directly off the traffic-free path, so you can enjoy safe, stress-free cycling! To read more about this section of the route, click here.

Double up your challenge by taking on the return journey!

Extend the route and continue on Route 66! After leaving Dewsbury, cycle on the Calder Valley Greenway and end up at Huddersfield Train Station. Please note, this option involves on-road cycling and is not marshalled. To read more about this section of the route, click here.
