Way of the Roses

Starting from Morecambe on the west coast this challenging ride passes through stunning scenery along the 170 mile route to the east coast at Bridlington. Opened in September 2010 the Sustrans Way of the Roses tour is well signposted and has train stations at either end making travel to and from the start and end points easy.

The Way of the Roses route passes through the Lune Valley, Yorkshire Dales National Park, Nidderdale AONB, Vale of York & the Yorkshire Wolds. As well as the historic cities of Lancaster and York the route also takes us through the towns of Settle, Ripon and Pocklington.

The route that we take avoids main roads and keeps to quiet country lanes and cycleways. A guide cycles with the group and your luggage is moved for you each day. You are provided with detailed route notes and maps so that you can cycle at your own pace or you can cycle with our guide who is always at the back of the group. The back up van will carry spares and a few spare bikes and will be on hand to help with any mechanical problems that may occur en-route. Breakfasts are provided each morning lunches are provided at a cafe or pub en-route.

We aim to take the hassle of organising a tour away from you so that you can concentrate on enjoying yourself and completing the Way of the Roses challenge. Your bags are moved for you each day and you have the knowledge that if anything goes wrong with your bike we will be on hand to fix it for you or provide a spare bike if necessary.
