Pickering to Whitby on the A169

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature - Adam Child, Se­nior Road Tester

3 As MCN’S pro­fes­sional York­shire­man I’ve been rid­ing the A169 for over 20 years and it still sat­is­fies on all lev­els. Its mix of every­thing from fast, sweep­ing bends to tight Alpine-style hair­pins makes it chal­leng­ing and re­ward­ing on any type of bike. Bank Hol­i­day traf­fic can be heavy, and you have to make al­lowances for tourists who stop with­out warn­ing to take pictures, but if you can save your ride un­til evening, the sun set­ting over the moors, will make your day. Sim­ply stun­ning!

The A169 is chal­leng­ing but very re­ward­ing
