Stay apart. Act responsibly. Safe lives. COVID-19 updates
The National Park has been here waiting for you and now that restrictions are relaxing, when you're ready to return, we'll be delighted to give you a warm welcome. Our car parks and public toilets are open in line with Government guidance.
Public rights of way everywhere are open. When you are outside, you can meet in groups of up to six people from different households but you should social distance from anyone you do not live with or is not part of your support bubble. Even after 4 July, the Government recommends that you keep two metres away from people where possible or one metre when you can mitigate the risk by taking other precautions.
If you are thinking of visiting the North York Moors, please follow our guidelines for accessing the National Park responsibly.
Ready for a two-wheel adventure?
The North York Moors is a fantastic location for cycling, whether you're a family cyclist or a world-class mountain biker.
If you're looking for inspiration, check out our downloadable cycling routes, right across the North York Moors and Howardian Hills. We have miles of country roads, bridleways, forest tracks and disused railway lines, and there are three dedicated cycling centres:
- Sutton Bank - for families and those new to mountain biking
- Dalby Forest - for families right through to more experienced mountain bikers
- Great Fryup Dale - for more experienced mountain bikers and road cyclists
You can also see the best of the National Park on the 'Moor to Sea Cycle Network' – 150 miles of pedal-powered freedom, taking you through some of the finest scenery in Britain.
Follow the old Scarborough-to-Whitby coastal railway line, cross the high moorland above Rosedale Abbey, wind through the woods of Cropton Forest – where do you fancy riding today?
