Rosedale Old Railway Line by Louise Cooke, NYMNPA

Easby to Rosedale Abbey

An exhilarating moorland ride that starts with a deceptively gentle cycle through the margins of the Cleveland Plain, before a mettle-testing climb up the infamous Ingleby Incline on the former Rosedale Mineral Railway. The reward is an easy cruise along the old railway trackbed over high moorland, enjoying magnificent views in all directions. Finish with a descent into the historic village of Rosedale Abbey where you'll be able to reward yourself with teas and ice cream.
