Routes

A new route across the north was opened in early September.

I haven’t gone past York but I know the bit from Driffield to York well and it’s my favourite bike ride…beautiful countryside, good roads and hardly any traffic (apart from a 1/2 mile mud path bit outside Dunnington – warning: the main road alternative is horrible).

Site added to links.

Timelapse videos

I bought a tiny camera to attach to my bike and made a few videos. Its a bit bumpy but not bad at all.

The first is Driffield – Bridlington.

You can see its mostly nice country lanes and how little traffic there is along the route (partly due to the manual level crossing).

I recently moved to Leeds and did a couple videos around where I live.

Around the Eccup reservoir and into University.

Back home from university.

For some stupid reason they decided to build a motorway through the centre of the city.

Updates

Updated nearly all the routes and subdivided them into

  • NCR (national cycle routes)
  • Routes (other routes)
  • Loops (day rides out of town)

I recommend downloading a printing off the council city/town maps if your planning to go into York/Hull/Beverley. They’re very good and hard to improve on.

I need to annotate the routes with various details but I’m uncertain of the best way. 95% of the paths posted are safe and have only light traffic which is the main thing.

Bridlington to Scarborough

Complete with a few nice pictures, see route links…

Recommend going via Bridlington if you coming from Driffield, the B1249 is horrible and up and down a few valleys.

Also added a few photos to the Driffield Loops (mainly of fields) and some of Beverley’s cycle lanes.
