Two top rid­ing routes re­vealed

Short-but-sweet es­capes will keep you sharp in the win­ter


York is steeped in his­tory but the roads out­side its walls are where it’s at if you love bik­ing, as MCN reader Ju­lian Her­bert knows all too well. Ju­lian says: “I love this route. It’s scenic with great vis­i­bil­ity be­cause of the low hedges, par­tic­u­larly along the stretch from Stam­ford Bridge. It’s easy to get giddy on the run into Fri­daythorpe and I of­ten stop off for a brew at Se­aways Café; it’s a must. It’s usu­ally brim­ming with bikes as it’s a gate­way to the coast. From there you can head to Whitby, Bridling­ton, Scar­bor­ough or turn tail and re­turn to York, the choice is yours.”
