His famous I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud was inspired by Ullswater, a little further north, but he urged travellers to take in the Lune valley on their way to the Lakes, and this spring-time ride will reveal why: the views towards the Yorkshire dales and Ingleborough, one of the Yorkshire Three Peaks , are astonishing. Length 3 miles Start The Gardeners Arms, Bilton Finish Ripley Castle Spring is when this new route is at its best, as bluebells erupt up the steep valley sides and birdsong fills the woodland around the Nidd river. One of the highlights is crossing the seven-arch Nidd viaduct in the opening mile and taking in the views over the treetops. The middle mile is a gentle ride through the woodland, while the final mile is along a shady river bank, bringing you into Ripley to end at the ivy-covered buildings of the market square and castle entrance. Length 11 miles Start School Lane, Polegate Finish High Street, Heathfield This gentle climb through the Cuckmere valley follows the former Cuckoo Line railway, taking its name from the old local custom of releasing a cuckoo at the Heathfield spring fair. Indeed, spring is the best time to ride it when the distinctive call of cuckoos may be heard overhead and lilac cuckoo flowers can be spotted trailside.
