I've updated the Hedgehog guide to the Cinder Track. The Cinder Track
itself has been slightly updated, with resurfacing in Scarborough and
Whitby, but remains very much the same otherwise. It's a track through
a lovely area, but it's in desperate need of maintenance.
A tour of York by bike, featuring many of the most beautiful sights,
and uncovering the fascinating history of the city. Cycling allows you
to cover more ground more easily, and get a wider perspective as
compared with a walking tour.
The canal towpath ride from Leeds to Saltaire is an enjoyable one,
all the more so after the latest resurfacing efforts - albeit that the
odd decision was taken to use a smorgasbord of different surface
The Hudson Way uses the trackbed of the old Market Weighton to
Beverley railway line. It goes through pleasant Yorkshire Wolds
farmland, and the destination is the interesting and historic market
town of Beverley. Since the railway no longer exists, you'll have to
pedal back again!
There's a great cycle route from the centre of York to
Beningbrough, partly on tarmacked path by the river Ouse, and partly
on quiet roads. It ends up at Beningbrough Hall, an C18th National
Trust property (where cyclists are entitled to a free cup of tea).

guide to the York to Beningbrough cycle route.
The latest in Hedgehog's Sustrans Slow Tour of
Yorkshire series, Stage 6 is a nice ride on quiet back roads
from Settle to Clapham. There's just enough hill-age to make it
interesting, and there are plenty of options for a cup of tea or a
pint of beer.
This circular road cycling route starts in Harrogate, and heads up
to Pateley Bridge then Lofthouse. It climbs the Côte de Lofthouse,
which featured on the 2017 Tour de Yorkshire, then returns via
Grewelthorpe, Kirkby Malzeard, Galphay, Studley Royal and Ripley to
Harrogate. It's on quiet, country roads, features beautiful scenery,
and there's the challenge of a steep ascent.
