Situated to the north of Otley in the beautiful Wasburn Valley. Yorkshire Water (the land owners) have cleared up and created a couple of permissive bridalways around Swinsty Reservoir (Close to Fewston reservoir on the A59 Skipton – Harrogate Road).

Whilst they don’t have the adrenaline factor of some other routes featured on this site, they are top for short evening rides or family friendly days out. We loved the Sun Inn at Norwood for a chilled post ride beer and the route features superb views of the numerous reservoirs and local nature, woodland and wildlife..
