Pickering to Whitby on the A169
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
