YORKSHIRE WOLDS CYCLE CHALLENGE
This well-signed circular route around the Yorkshire Wolds opened in July 2011. Using predominantly minor roads, it takes in the ever changing scenery of the Wolds, from the dramatic cliffs at Bempton, to the rolling hills of Sledmere and the medieval town of Beverley – this route has it all!
In total the route is 146 miles long, which includes two “optional” short detours to Hunmanby Gap and RSPB Bempton Cliffs. It is predominantly on minor country lanes but does include one off-road non-tarmac section on day 2 at Sober Hill, north-east of North Newbald - totalling almost 2 miles. This is unlikely to suit skinny tyred road bikes, but a wider tyred touring / hybrid bike should be ok, depending on rider and conditions. So, riders of some road bikes and novices /younger children, may opt to walk this section.
Route maps will be available to purchase by riders at the start, and suggested refreshment stops along the way will be mentioned.
