Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Route

Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Route


The quiet country lanes that criss-cross the rolling chalk hills on the Yorkshire Wolds are a cycling treat, leading to wonderful views, wildlife, historic places and pretty villages. Beverley is a gem of a market town. Home to thousands of seabirds, Bempton's white cliffs are the Wolds rising impressively out of the North Sea. Bridlington's beach backed promenades are now open for cycling.

Linking all this together is the new 146 mile Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Route, probably best ridden in a clockwise direction. Big Skies day ride routes are also available.

East of the Wolds is the low-lying and agriculturally rich Holderness plain. Small seaside places and the unique Spurn Head peninsula lead round into the Humber estuary, on which sits the port of Hull - a high-cycling city with The Deep aquarium and free museums to visit. Arriving under the iconic Humber Bridge, the Trans Pennine Trail traverses the centre on its way to Hornsea.

West of the Wolds sits the walled city of York, another of Britain's top cycling cities with a wealth of historic attractions and events. Coming all the way from the Lancashire coast at Morcambe, the Way of the Roses cycle route runs right by the towering Minster en-route across the Wolds to Bridlington.

Malton market town sits in the north-west corner of the Wolds and at the eastern end the Howardian Hills, not far from Castle Howard.
