New bikepacking route in Yorkshire

Posted on February 16 in Routes

The Adventure Route as it is known, is the ‘heart’ of the collection of the new Route YC cycling routes on the Yorkshire Coast. Travelling between Whitby and Spurn Point, you can enjoy stunning cliffs and beaches, remote moors, dark skies, picturesque villages and towns, and a friendly Yorkshire welcome wherever you stop.

Designed for gravel bikes, the Route YC Adventure route is equally fun on mountain bikes, combining a good mix of gravel paths, single trails, cycle paths and quiet roads - at times on fast and flat sections, at other times negotiating the hills that give you a taste of real Yorkshire grit.

Start/Finish: Scarborough Railway Station

Recommended riding time: 5 days

Terrain: A mixture of gravel tracks, singletrack, cycle paths but over 70% on the roads
