Way of the Roses

Start location: Morecambe

End location: Bridlington

Distance: 170 miles (274 km)

Britain's newest 'coast-to-coast' cycle route opened in September 2010 and has quickly become a classic. The Way of the Roses route runs for 170 well signed miles between Morecambe on Lancashire's Irish Sea coast and Bridlington on Yorkshire's North Sea coast. It passes through the historic cities of York and Lancaster, and lesser known gems such as Settle, Pateley Bridge and Ripon.

Between the broad sweeps of Morecambe and Bridlington Bays, you'll be cycling across a beautiful, changing landscape comprising the Lune Valley, Forest of Bowland, Yorkshire Dales, Nidderdale AONB, Vale of York and the Yorkshire Wolds. The route consists of traffic-free paths, on-road cycle lanes, country lanes and quieter roads, all part of the National Cycle Network.

It's a challenging, but rewarding cycle touring break or longer holiday, and both end points (as well as several points in between) can be reached by train. You can find out more on the Way of the Roses website, and the map is available from Sustrans online shop.
