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

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!

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.
