Bike Rides are Endless..

There is plenty to see and do whilst cycling in North Yorkshire, with lots of magnificent country side and a spectacular valley located in the North Yorkshire Moor National Park, there are always new cycle routes to be found.

The Yorkshire Dales contain lots of bridleways and green lanes, just some of the initiatives by the National Park Authority including more cycle stands, more maps published for mountain bikers, increasing cycle friendly accommodation and a re-signing campaign to improve navigation for cyclists.

Children`s Park and Playing Field

Highside Playing Fields is the centre for the areas sporting activities including football, cricket, tennis, bowls and quoits with a children’s play area and a multi-use games area also provided.

Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden

G&T Ice-Cream Parlour

G&T`s artisan ice cream is produced in house at the ice cream parlour, using organic whole milk and organic double cream. The flavours added from Italy give their delicious ice cream a taste of authentic Italian Gelato, a piece of Italy in good old Yorkshire.

Hackfall Wood

North Yorkshire’s most amazing walk and adventure, Hackfall appears today to be a natural wood, a “beautiful wilderness” to quote one of the 19th century writers who thought Hackfall Wood one of the most beautiful places in the country. In fact it is very much a landscape moulded by man.
