The Ale Trail, a grand cycle tour of Timothy Taylor’s country

Traditional Timothy Taylor’s Yorkshire pubs and classic South Pennines countryside are a match made in heaven. This 201⁄4-mile S-shaped route starts in Keighley which has been home to Timothy Taylor’s since its foundation in 1858. The company still has its brewery and headquarters in the town as well as five pubs – Lord Rodney, Boltmakers Arms, The Royal Oak, Albert Hotel and Burlington Arms. There are four other of its hostelries to choose from elsewhere on the route – The Grouse Inn at Oldfield, The Fleece in Haworth, The White Horse in Thornton and The Dog & Gun in Oxenhope. The Brown Cow at Bingley is included in the Ale Trail Extra route.
