What is the project?

Building on the high profile of cycling in Yorkshire generated by the 2019 UCI Road World Cycling Championships,  2014 Grand Départ Tour de France and the annual Tour de Yorkshire, Cycle England aims to encourage visitors to discover Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, and the surrounding areas by bike.


For those looking to cycle at a leisurely pace, then the Way of the Roses Cycleway offers the perfect option. Either bringing their own bike or hiring one while in England, visitors can cycle 266km over 7 days, along a quiet route, taking in beautiful villages and towns along the way including the medieval city of York. Or for those feeling particularly energetic, The Yorkshire Dales Cycleway Sport Challenge covers approximately 83km each day for 3 days, and takes in challenging climbs and breath-taking roads.


With a range of bookable itineraries on offer, Cycle England puts cycle holidays well and truly on the map.
