Cycle the North York Moors with the excellent team from Cycling Tours of Yorkshire, headed up by expert guide and company owner Andrea Wood. See, some of the most beautifully rugged countryside in Britain… and yes, there’s ample cake as reward for your efforts on the way.
“Aside from her excellent cycling skills and knowledge of the North York Moors, the best thing about doing a tour with Andrea is that nothing is too difficult for her. As soon as she heard Lyndsey hadn’t cycled for years, she sourced an electric bike from Big Bear Bikes in Pickering, a helmet and an extra pair of cycling shorts. It meant Lyndsey could cycle at the same pace as the rest of the group –
and anyone who’s tried to ride without cycling shorts will know how vital they are the day after. We had an excellent time: challenging climbs, beautiful scenery and, yes, Andrea knows all the best tea rooms. Did we mention cakes?James & Lyndsey, Yorkshire's Best Adventures
What Cycling Tours of Yorkshire say:
We know the North York Moors National Park like the back of our hands and have created some amazing routes for you to ride, that will suit everyone from those looking for a gentle ride around the moors to those who want to compete for the Strava leaderboard.
We’ve graded all our routes as 1-5 in difficulty so you know exactly what you are getting yourself into. We don’t want you to be hailing for a cab half way round, but equally if you fancy yourself as a queen or king of the mountains, you can try our Magnificent Seven route – a real beast of a ride over 85 miles and with more than 9,000ft of elevation. All the seven iconic climbs it covers have gradients of 25% and above, with a couple at more than 30%.
Not all our tours have fixed itineraries. If you have an idea where you would like to visit on your holiday, we can organise the tour to incorporate those destinations for you.
We also have ‘create your own tour’ weeks and weekends throughout the year and all our tours will be lead at a pace to suit YOU; your group will be lead by a guide of a similar standard.
Weekend break? Or simply a day trip… we can give you all the information you need to have an amazing time on two wheels and get the very best out of a cycling tour to Yorkshire.
