Ryedale is a district of North Yorkshire in England, nestling between the City of York and Heritage Coastline. The North York Moors National Park form the northern border of the district and the Yorkshire Wolds the southern limit. Ryedale is a diverse and beautiful area of spectacular scenery, bustling market towns, dale and hill farms, and picturesque villages.
Whether you regularly cycle and take your bicycle on holiday, or simply like the idea of spending a few hours exploring on two wheels – Ryedale is perfect for all ages and abilities. Cycling though forests, along country lanes, on high open moorland or by rolling fields is all possible in North Yorkshire. There is a great cycling network here, especially since the creation of the Moor to Sea Cycle route that links the towns of Whitby, Scarborough and Pickering. This 80 mile route takes you through all types of scenery and if you wish to cycle just a bit at a time you can easily do so.
Ride along the National Byway from the coast to the Howardian Hills, go for guided bike ride in the high moors of Rosedale or have a family day out on Dalby Forest’s cycle trails, there are lots of opportunities to bring your bike out.
