    I am a casual cyclist. The longest trip ( a one off ) was 80 miles last year. I commute to work daily, and go out weekends for 50 miles in a day max. Anyone who has done this route think it is unrealistic to attempt it in 2 days over a weekend. After looking at a couple of maos, the bits around Hebden to Haworth look like they might be a bit tough, and a couple of walks uphill might be in order. For those who've done it, I've managed the hill out of Silsden over to Ilkey ok, and up the Cow and calf to Ilkley Moor bah tat (just). Is the terrain over Haworth, Hebden any tougher. Cheers for any advice. I have a hybdrid but if it looks really tough, I think I'll bung some slicks on my mtb and give it a go that way.
    Happy riding to all.

    I think you'll be fine. If it comes to it, it's not the end of the world
    to walk the odd steep pitch.
