Scarborough to Ravenscar Cycle Route

Scarborough to Ravenscar Cycle Route

Businesses across the Yorkshire Coast are looking forward to welcoming you back.

Please check the individual website for reopening dates, opening times and booking details.

We recommend you follow current public health advice and maintain social distancing.


The former railway line (now known as the ‘Cinder Track’) which links Scarborough to Ravenscar (and Whitby) is one of the foremost cycle routes in the UK. There are some great sea views and you won’t miss any of them scrutinising maps as the navigation is very simple and the Cinder Track is well signposted. Among the highlights is Ravenscar itself – a proposed Victorian resort, dubbed ‘The Town That Never Was’ – and the beach at Hayburn Wyke. There is also a selection of places to eat and drink right on the track which makes it particularly well suited to family cycling.
