Stay apart. Act responsibly. Safe lives. COVID-19 updates
We're asking everyone to follow Government advice to stay at home as much as possible. Public rights of way everywhere are open but outdoor exercise is only allowed if you are social distancing, including staying 2 metres apart from those not in your household.
Most Authority car parks and public toilets are closed but we have begun a phased reopening of some of them in line with Government guidance.
The stunning National Park will be here waiting for you to enjoy when it is safe to do so and we look forward to welcoming you back then. If you are thinking of visiting the North York Moors now, please follow our guidelines for accessing the National Park safely.
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?
