Cycling Breaks Yorkshire
Although we’re only a 40 minute drive from the fabulous Dalby Forest where you’ll find some amazing bike runs for all age groups and abilities, we also have some amazing quiet roads and breath-taking scenery right on our doorstep, no wonder every year the Tour De Yorkshire runs through the village of Egton.
Come and have a break at the hotel, bring your bike and cycle some amazing roads.
Climb to the top (or we’ll drop you off) and head out onto the moor, you’ll find the road is perfect for any bike and you won’t find many cars. The road across the moor is mainly straight but has some beautiful downhill bends. Stay on the quiet road or cut through the Forest, the forest is often used for local and international rallies so the terrain is brilliant for mountain or hybrids bikes.
We have electric bikes available to hire, we recommend electric in the area because of the hills, but once you’re on top the scenario is incredible. Electric bikes let you choose just how tough you want the ride to be so they suit all levels from keen cyclists to beginners. To find out more: Bike hire Whitby
Probably the best day out by bike you’ll ever have…
Ride to Robin Hoods Bay, Ravenscar, Scarborough all off-road
The train to Whitby from the Egton Station will take bikes, this is the perfect way to get to Whitby. From the station it’s easy to pickup the Cinder Track (only bit of road). The track will take you along some breath-taking scenery. Have a picnic or a (highly recommended) Club Sandwich at the Victoria Hotel in Robin Hoods Bay, ride on to Ravenscar for some spectacular sea views, if you’ve got the energy you can continue all the way to Scarborough, which is mainly downhill, don’t forget you’ve got to come back!
Cycling Storage at the Hotel
During your break at the hotel your bike can be stored securely at the rear of the hotel we have solid fixed chains to secure your bikes and the latest CCTV so your bikes will be safe.
