Kirklees Eastern Riding Route.
The Kerr is a route for cyclists and horse riders that forms a rough figure 8 shape, with Lepton at its centre. The northern part of the route is shorter than the southern section. However, the northern section is much harder and more challenging than the southern section. For those not wanting to complete the whole route the two sections can be ridden as two distinct circular rides. The whole route is approximately 30 miles in length, excluding the links to the Spen valley Greenway. The Northern section being 13 miles, while the southern is 17 miles.
