The Route 

144 miles of quiet roads and stunning scenery 
The Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge features a magnificent circular route – a beautiful 144-mile tour around the Yorkshire Wolds. 
Developed by the charity Sustrans in 2011, the Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Route is a well-signed ride on quiet country lanes, passing quaint villages, striking coastline and historic towns along the way. 
Starting and finishing at Norton College, near Malton, the route is fully signed and can be ridden either clockwise or anticlockwise, and we alternate each year. In 2024 we will run in a anti-clockwise direction!

The Yorkshire Wolds 
The Wolds are one of Yorkshire’s best-kept secrets, often overlooked by tourists in favour of the Dales or North York Moors. 
This secluded corner of the country is a hidden gem that’s perfect for cyclists. It offers a stunning array of beautiful countryside, with quiet roads winding through rolling chalk hills, open countryside and medieval market towns. 
Skirted to the east by the striking coastline with its magnificent cliffs and popular seaside resorts, and to the south by the Humber Estuary, it offers riders fabulous, varied panoramic views for the duration of the Challenge.
