Admire the chalk-cliff coastline as you cycle via Sewerby Hall and Gardens to Bempton Cliffs. Lock your bike to the racks at the RSPB nature reserve visitor centre and walk to the dramatic cliff tops. The cliffs become England's largest seabird colony from April to August when hundreds of thousands of breeding birds nest here. Then it's inland to Rudston village with its chalk stream and the largest freestanding Neolithic stone in Britain. Return along Woldgate Roman Road and through Bridlington's historic Old Town. Bridlington and Bempton (an alternative start point) are on the Yorkshire Coast railway line.
