Morecambe to Bridlington Way of the Roses Cycle

170 miles over 3 or 4 days

This superb Sustrans C2C cycle route passes through the counties of Lancashire (the red rose) and Yorkshire (the white rose), on a journey of 170 miles from west to east. Small market towns, high moorland roads, and grand walled cities are all in store on this great C2C cycle route.

The Way of the Roses cycle route is fully signposted and takes you along stunning river valleys, high into the Yorkshire Dales, through towns steeped in history dating back to the Neolithic era and across ancient Viking battlefields. If you’ve already challenged yourself on the Classic C2C and want another fantastic 3 or 4 days on the bike, then this tour will not disappoint.
