This is one of the newest cycle routes in Yorkshire and was completed in September 2010. It is a fantastic coast to coast cycle route starting from Morecambe in the west following traffic free paths, on road cycle lanes and country roads all the way to Bridlington in the east, a total of 170 miles. It passes through such historic places as York and Lancaster as well as traditional Yorkshire towns and villages like Settle, Pateley Bridge and Ripon.

Although it's certainly a challenge for any rider it's a route that crosses some of the most beautiful landscapes in Yorkshire, making it well worth the effort. If you want a trip which will run through the Lune Valley, Forest of Bowland, the Yorkshire Dales, the Nidderdale AONB, Vale of York and the Yorkshire Wolds then this is the bike ride for you!

Stratton House which sleeps six is situatedjust a mile fromthe route so why not stay here and explore the route from both west and east!

It's always recommended that you go from west to east for the greater chance of having a wind at your back, but whichever way you choose to go it won't stop the rain! Be prepared for the elements!
