There's some great riding near Dewsbury golf course. Lovely stone stabbed tracks, with some fabulous descents, and some technical climbs. Only problems is some parts are really muddy. Do watch out for the odd slippery bit of stone slab, as it's easy to find the grip isn't as good as you thought and go over the bars.
