WOR Itinerary Introduction

The Cycling - Introduction

This route crosses the country between the bay of Morecambe on the west coast and the promenade at Bridlington to the east, passing through the counties of Lancashire (red rose) and Yorkshire (white rose). This tour 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. Our trips complete this route in three or four full days of cycling - that's enough to be a challenge, but still do-able by any moderately fit person used to consecutive days in the saddle.
