Yorkshire, UK. The best place for a cycling holiday and Scoot can find the perfect combination for you
If you have a particular interest, you might like to choose one of our special themed holidays. We are adding a new wildlife-themed route for 2015. What are your special interests?
Gourmet Gallop is an ideal coast-to-coast ride for those of you who enjoy longer days on the bikes and a really good meal at the end of the day. We find the best there is in Yorkshire for your supper each evening and include this in your holiday package. Good choices for vegetarians too!
Literature, TV & film
The stunning Yorkshire scenery has inspired novelists and poets for many years, from the gifted Bronte family to James Herriot's humorous tales of a Yorkshire vet. These days the countryside and historic houses are often used for TV or movie sets. Wuthering Heights was filmed in Wensleydale a few years ago. Castle Howard is a must for fans of Brideshead Revisited and Newby Hall was the setting for many scenes for Jane Austen's Mansfield Park. And if you love Downton Abbey you may have noticed that place names in Yorkshire are mentioned a lot in the script - York, Ripon, Malton etc. The story is set in this county!
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.
The Yorkshire coastline, Humber estuary and Yorkshire Wolds are great locations for bird-watchers and all lovers wildlife. This area - Yorkshire's Nature Triangle - can be explored by bicycle at your leisure. Our routes will take you to several nature reserves maintained by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, with details on what wildlife to look out for at each location. Ask us about our Wildlife Tour.

Art and photography lovers have enjoyed our holiday Hockney's Bigger Ride, which takes you to locations in East Yorkshire that inspired David Hockney and then on to Saltaire by train from York to see some of his work. If you have an interest in history, we suggest Cities and Battlefields, a single base holiday that allows you to cycle to various battlefields over a long weekend. The Castle Museum in York is highly recommended too.
A day on foot
Some of our guests like to have a break from a day in the saddle and go for a good country walk. We can make suggestions and give walking routes - just remember to pack your boots (they can travel in your luggage)!
