Cycling on the Yorkshire Coast
Imagine cycling along a rugged coastline, inhaling the fresh sea air whilst taking in some of the UK's finest views, or biking through forests, along country lanes and on high open moorland surrounded by rolling fields...it's all possible in North Yorkshire.
There is a great cycling network here, especially since the creation of the Moor to Sea Cycle route that links the towns of Whitby, Scarborough and Pickering. This 80 mile route takes you through all types of scenery, and if you wish to, cycle just a bit at a time.
Ride along the disused railway track from Whitby to Scarborough, along the National Byway from the coast to the Howardian Hills, go for guided bike rides in the high moors of Rosedale or have a family day out on Dalby Forest's cycle trails, the Yorkshire Coast and North York Moors boast endless opportunities for those who want to saddle up and explore!
"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them"
~ Ernest Hemingway
