Yorkshire Coast cycle routes

Gear up for a breath-taking journey on two wheels through the heart of the Yorkshire Coast's stunning landscapes and the North York Moors National Park

Whether your ride is gravel, road, or adventure, or you are a first-time bike-packer, the experts have tailored twelve new routes to give you the best of the coast and countryside.

These routes have been developed by Markus Stitz, Marc Beaumont and Jenny Graham.

Five-Day Adventure Route
  • 258 miles (415kms) Start/Finish Scarborough Railway Station

This is the ‘heart’ of the collection of the new Route YC cycling routes on the Yorkshire Coast. Travelling between Whitby and Spurn Point, you can enjoy stunning cliffs and beaches, remote moors, dark skies, picturesque villages and towns, and a friendly Yorkshire welcome wherever you stop.

Adventure Weekender
  • 91 miles (147kms) Start/Finish Whitby Railway Station

Packing everything unique about the Yorkshire Coast into a long weekend. Enjoy the tranquillity of the North York Moors, the striking coastline and beautiful villages and towns while you cycle on gravel tracks, cycle paths, quiet lanes and roads through the stunning countryside of England’s east coast.

Touring Route from Hull to Staithes
  • 109 miles (175kms) Start/Finish Hull Ferry port.

Designed to be ridden in both directions, this cycling touring route connects with the ferry and railways in Hull and the well-known EuroVelo 12 route in Staithes, the North Sea Cycle Route.

Along the way, you can savour the beauty of the Yorkshire Coast, with more pastoral landscapes in the south and the tranquillity of the North York Moors and the stunning coastline in the north.
