Thixendale / Kirkham Priory bike trip, #2 in my beneficial N Yorkshire cycle rides

In search of some nice cycle routes in North Yorkshire? If jaw-dropping views, unimaginable surroundings, medieval ruins and even a ruined medieval village are your factor, then this 33-mile round bike trip must be amongst THE MOST SPECTACULAR of all Yorkshire Wolds cycle rides. With an elevation achieve of 2466 there are some hefty climbs however they’re nicely price it for the superior views, imagine me – you’re feeling on high of the world!! Additionally, would you imagine it is a WARM, SUNNY SATURDAY within the faculty summer season holidays – but it’s so quiet! And biking within the Yorkshire Wolds wouldn’t be full with out freewheeling down the spectacular Water Dale to Thixendale which was nearly abandoned.

This cycle trip is #11 in Nick Cotton’s ebook ‘Cycle Excursions North York Moors’ – ‘South from Malton to Kirkham Priory and Thixendale’ – the one change being that I began at Barton-le-Willows and reduce out Malton and Norton-on-Derwent by taking a cheeky detour alongside a bridleway.

Beginning at Barton-le-Willows, simply off the A64 between York and Malton, the anti-clockwise round bike trip takes the next route: Howsham Corridor, Leavening, Water Dale, Thixendale, Fairy Dale, Wharram Percy Medieval Village, Wharram-le-Road, Duggleby, Duggleby Wold, Settrington (doesn’t go into the village), bypassing Norton-on-Derwent, Menethorpe, Kirkham Priory, Crambe and again to Barton-le-Willows. Contains a part of the Yorkshire Wolds cycle route.

Make sure you try my bike trip movies and the opposite (primarily Yorkshire) cycle trip segments – superb to be used on the fitness center on an indoor coach, train bike, treadmill, cross coach, and so forth! Most are in Yorkshire, however some are in Lancashire, Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Derbyshire.

Most of my latest cycle trip movies are (nearly) uncut which makes them superb for following on an indoor coach or train bike on wet days or within the winter, which is what I exploit them for – so that you get the climbs and all.
