England Bike Tours and UK Cycling Holidays from SCOOT

Yorkshire, UK. The best place for a cycling holiday and Scoot can find the perfect combination for you

 

Great cycling

At Scoot we take great care not only to choose safe routes but to choose beautiful routes.  This is how our customers see the real England.  Country lanes and paths criss-cross between fields and stone walls, across moors, down into dales, giving you wonderful views as you cycle.  Interspersed along the route you will find wonderful places to stop for refreshment or to sightsee.  And we will warn you if there is a stretch with no such opportunity so you can make sure you have a snack and a full water bottle beforehand.

Off the beaten track

Off the beaten track

Our routes may have some off road stretches but nothing our bikes can't manage.  The majority of the route will be on quiet country lanes where you are more likely to meet another cyclist than a car.  A great opportunity to escape from the routines of daily life.

 

Beautiful routes

Scoot takes care of all the detail.  We know Yorkshire and where to find the best cycling to suit you.

Choose Scoot because we have the knowledge and can put you at ease. No need for you to work it out. Let us show you the best of Yorkshire.

Full route information

We include all you need to make the most of the routes we give you.  We not only help you find the route but we suggest places to stop for some refreshment or a great view.  We provide maps and route notes, point out which signs to look for to keep on track and on many routes we provide a satellite navigation device too.

Feedback on our routes:

"a wonderful variety of landscapes and historical sites—a really good mix of culture, history and nature. We felt by the end that we had truly experienced the beauty and charm that is the Yorkshire countryside"  Toni and Jake from California

 

"What a wonderful route!  I loved the variety: ocean shorelines, mountains, dales with sheep, narrow winding roads with stone walls on each side . . .and most of it without having to fight with traffic. Eleanor from Canada

 

"Route was very well thought through to include a gradation of challenges, interesting places to visit and just the right level of difficulty.  Could have done a couple of days more!" Gill and Claire from the UK

 

"We really enjoyed our experience with Scoot. The route was everything we hoped for." Ross and Betty from Australia

SCOOT Cycling Code

At SCOOT CYCLING HOLIDAYS we believe that everyone should make the most of Yorkshire's fabulous outdoors as often as possible, whether it’s cycling, riding, walking or running. There are many occasions when we will share space with others. This guide will help us ensure that we all explore safely and courteously.

 

ALL ROUTES

 

  • Please cycle with consideration for other users at all times, whether they are pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders or drivers. Give way to pedestrians and always acknowledge those who give way to you.
  • Cycle only within your capabilities and match your speed to the surface and your skills
  • Let somebody know your route in advance and when you expect to be back
  • Try to get to the start and finish of your cycle ride by public transport

 

SHARED PATHWAYS

Many traffic free routes are used.  Some may be part of the National Cycle Network or possibly a disused railway line. Remember that they are suitable not only for cyclists, but walkers, horse riders and wheelchair users – please show respect for others and follow a few simple guidelines.  That way everyone gets the benefit.

 

  • Keep to your side of any dividing line
  • Do not cycle at high speed, you must be prepared to slow down or even stop suddenly
  • Be cautious when you approach junctions and bends
  • Be aware that many people are hard of hearing or visually impaired, they may not know you are there
  • Use your bell to alert people that you are there
  • Always give way to wheelchair users and horse riders

 

COUNTRYSIDE CYCLING

  • Follow the Country Code
  • Take your litter home
  • Respect farming, forestry and other land management activities
  • Keep erosion at bay by limiting the impact of off road cycling
  • In remote areas carry some food, water, repair kit, waterproofs, map and mobile phone

 

ROAD CYCLING

Our planned routes use minor roads through towns

 

  • Follow the highway code
  • Make sure you are visible – especially at junctions where most accidents happen
  • Keep lights on in poor visibility or darkness
  • Wear a helmet and colourful clothing
  • Make sure your bike is roadworthy
  • Do not cycle on pavements – unless specifically designated and keep to your side of a shared path
  • Alert pedestrians with your bell

 

THE BICYCLE DOES NOT CAUSE POLLUTION OR CONTRIBUTE TO CLIMATE CHANGE.

BE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY.

CHOOSE TO CYCLE. CHOOSE TO SCOOT.
