        The experience

        A fully guided, fully-supported 3-day weekend cycling adventure.

        Enjoy comfortable accommodation at our base for the weekend The Bike and Boot cycle friendly hotel standing proudly on the beautiful Victorian north cliffs of Scarborough. Rest and recoup in their cinema or comfy retreat serving free hot drinks and cake each day. 

        A challenging ride with steep hill climbs and long distances each day, suitable for confident, experienced cyclists. 

        Your efforts will be rewarded with magnificent far-reaching views of the coast and rugged moorland whilst further inland enjoy the more gently rolling chalkland hills of the Wolds and wooded Howardian hills. 

        Optional challenge of an awe-inspiring ride up onto the heather covered Yorkshire moors on Saturday OR opt for a shorter ride up the coast to visit the picturesque coastal village of Robin Hood’s Bay and town of Whitby with their narrow, twisting cobbled streets and fascinating history.

        For those wanting a gentle second day spend time enjoying the delights of Scarborough's traditional working harbour and quirky sea side shops. Visit the imposing Scarborough castle sat high on the cliffs straddling both North and South bays or spend time down on the broad sandy beach's fossil hunting, rock pooling, beach combing, rock hopping or delve into the refreshing North Sea for a surf lesson, all a stone's throw from the hotel.

        Each day we will provide a locally sourced picnic lunch and why not treat yourself to a traditional Yorkshire curd tart at one of the café stops. If you just can’t resist the urge for Yorkshire fish and chips then Whitby is the 'plaice' to go. And what could be better than enjoying an ice cream at the seaside.

        Secure cycle storage, bike wash and maintenance facilities within the hotel each night.
