North York Moors Cycleway

Blog image

Explore the delights of the North York Moors, considered by many to be one of the best kept secrets in cycling.

The North York Moors Cycleway passes through our iconic heather landscape on a 171 mile (276km) figure of eight loop.

It passes around hidden valleys, through deep forests and has stunning views along our rugged coastline.

If you're not quite up for doing the full route, it joins up with the Esk Valley Railway, meaning some sections can be done as a car-free day out.

'Brake for cake' at one of the growing number of cycling friendly cafés the area has to offer, or stop off at a traditional pub along the way.

Take in the wealth of history with castles, museums and ruined abbeys and lost industries with folklore and tales of smuggling for a true North York Moors adventure.
