Thanks for your comments, everyone! Have not yet got a strong enough light, but will get is sorted & then give it a go. Have been using path that starts at Buslingthorpe Lane, past Meanwood Farm to Stainbeck Rd, where I come off the designated cycle path and go towards Roundhay.

from fb: Always give plenty of room for the narrow parts with pedestrians. I think it's their path (not a bridleway?) and I think it's a blind eye to cyclists on the footpath route. Cycled it Most days for 2.5 years never a puncture (touch wood) and just 1 guy with his moody Scott dogs that doesn't like me. Everyone else is lovely. In dark u see owls & foxes all emerge.
