Welcome to our comprehensive guide to cycling in and around the rolling countryside of the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds
The Yorkshire Wolds provides the perfect cycling location. With a wide selection of day rides available to suit any ability and a more challenging 150 mile circular Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Route, the Yorkshire Wolds is the perfect location for a relaxed cycling holiday or break with friends or family. Miles of peaceful country lanes, quiet roads and cycle paths link market towns and villages, cafes, art galleries, country pubs serving locally produced food and ales, historic houses, churches and stately homes. It also has one or two iconic hill challenges and miles of off-road mountain bike trails.
Only 2 hours or less, from London and other major cities by train, the Yorkshire Wolds is easily accessible by bicycle or bus from the mainline station at York, or Hull. Take the Way of the Roses cycle route out of York, and you can soon be enjoying the gems of the Wolds – Thixendale, Millington, the lovely Yorkshire coastline and all the historic and natural heritage which makes this such a special part of Yorkshire. For northern European guests arriving at the ferry terminal in Hull, you're only a short cycle or rail journey to Beverley where you can link easily with the Yorkshire Wolds cycle route.
Enjoy ever-changing scenery from dramatic coastal cliffs at Bempton rolling hills near Sledmere to the medieval city of Beverley; the Yorkshire Wolds and it’s 150 mile circular cycle route, has it all.
