Go cycling in the Yorkshire Wolds

Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire

Swap four wheels for two to enjoy some of the best big skies and back roads cycling in England.

For an active break try the Yorkshire Wolds Cycle route, a well signed 146-mile circular route around the crescent of rolling hills east of historic York. Miles of quiet roads, country lanes and cycle paths link small market towns, picturesque villages, cafes and tearooms, and country pubs serving locally produced food and beers.

Fine historic houses and churches add to the distinctive chalk landscape, which has been captured by the artist David Hockney to popular acclaim. From the dramatic cliffs of Flamborough Head, to the parkland setting of Sledmere and the medieval gem of Beverley, this route is an ideal choice for those new to cycle touring, and for adventurous families. Beverley and Malton make good starting points if travelling by train, and it’s also possible to cycle from York via Stamford Bridge (National Route 66).
