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

 

A railway-themed holiday

We are delighted to introduce a new holiday for 2016 that takes you into the North York Moors National Park.

The NYMR - North Yorkshire Moors Railway - winds its way from Pickering along stunning Newtondale and pretty Eskdale, passing halts and characterful stations at Levisham, Goathland and Grosmont before going on to Whitby on the coast. Some of these locations have been used for Harry Potter movies among many others.

Pedal And Ride combines rail travel with cycling in the moors and valleys in this attractive part of Yorkshire.

Average 25 miles/40km cycling each day

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.

 

On this holiday you can choose to add on a night in York before or after your cycle trip. This gives you the opportunity to visit the National Railway Museum and other places of interest in this historic city. If you would like to do some walking in the moors in addition to some cycling, you can add on an extra night and we will give you suggested walking routes. It's your choice!

3 days - £425 (includes rail tickets)


Day 1 Arrive at York Station (Grade II* Listed Building and opened in 1877) where we meet you with bikes and catch the train to Scarborough. We transfer your luggage to your accommodation in the National Park while you cycle from the coast along quiet lanes and through picturesque valleys and woodland. Enjoy an overnight stay at a delightful country inn.

If you'd like to go for a country walk tomorrow, simply book 2 nights here and we'll add this to your itinerary.

 

Day 2 After a hearty breakfast it's time for a short cycle ride to the nearest station to catch a train on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway where you can enjoy the impressive landscape from the railway carriage before getting back on to your bikes for a moorland ride and then across varied terrain to the coast at Whitby.

 

Day 3 After a night at the coast you are cycling along the Whitby to Scarborough Rail Trail, not forgetting to stop at lovely Robin Hoods Bay. At the end of your ride today you simply catch the train back to York with your bikes and we will meet you off your train with your luggage.

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.
