Day 1: Arrive in Beverley
Day 2: Beverley to Pocklington
Day 3: Pocklington to Malton
Day 4: Malton to Hunmanby
Day 5: Hunmanby to Driffield
Day 6: Driffield to Beverley
Day 7: Arrangements end after breakfast

Day 1:    Arrive in Beverley

Arrive in Beverley, which in medieval times was in the top 10 most important towns in England. Today you have time to visit the minster, a huge cathedral-sized church dating back to 1404. Beverly has a lively outdoor market and a surviving medieval town gatehouse. 

Day 2:    Beverley to Pocklington

Roll out of the suburbs of Beverley in the morning and then through the big sky agricultural landscape, punctuated with small swathes of forestry plantations. Next is a good run into Market Weighton, perhaps for lunch. From here there are a few mild climbs and the dry valley of Cleaving Coombe to bring you into Pocklington. Peace and tranquility can be found in the town's renowned gardens at Burnby Hall. Pocklington is a town of charming, independent shops and boutiques. 

Day 3:    Pocklington to Malton

A series of climbs and the valley of Pasturdale bring you up to Huggate. Heading on you roll around on top of the Wolds before descending with your bike into Thixendale. An undulating ride brings you to Kirkham above the river Rye, before heading into Malton.

This is a market town that now claimed to be Yorkshire’s food capital busy with local stores and restaurants. If you have time, and you want to take an extra day here, 11km (6.8miles) away is Castle Howard, an ornate gilded 18th century stately home set in landscaped grounds with fountains, trails and lakes. 

Day 4:    Malton to Hunmanby

Your third day of cycling soon gets underway with a steep climb up Fizgig Hill, after Settring Village. The cycling then goes back to more gentle undulations through the fertile farmland and hills of the Wolds. Finally you descend into Cans Dale and over South Dale to arrive in Hunmanby.

Stroll around the village and admire All Saints Church with its unusual Admirals Arch.

Day 5:    Hunmanby to Driffield

Today is quite a long day, but generally with gentle cycling. Although it adds a few kms, you can take a ride off route to the RSPB sanctuary of Bempton Cliffs. Another place of note is the seaside at Bridlington, where you should make time for a paddle and an ice cream. Just before the town is Sewerby Hall, a georgian country house set in 50 acres of landscaped gardens.

Then its back inland, gently climbing up Rudston Beacon and descending into Burton Agnes. You finally drift into Driffield. You have lots of choice in pubs and restaurants here.

Day 6:    Driffield to Beverley

The Yorkshire Wolds Cycleway concludes with a shorter day in typical Wolds style. Wind around the roads that connect the farms together with the little market villages. You pass through many farms and a couple of picturesque villages such as Etton and Cherry Burton. Arriving back in Beverley, we trust the town will be as welcoming to you as it was to King Charles II, he stayed in a guesthouse here for 3 weeks shortly before the start of the English Civil War.

Day 7:    Arrangements end after breakfast
The trip ends after breakfast when you depart the accommodation.

There is a variety of accommodation along the Yorkshire Wolds cycling route ranging from bed & breakfasts, lodges and pubs to small hotels. They are run by cycling-friendly hosts offering en-suite or private facility rooms with a tasty breakfast to get you ready for the day ahead. Further facilities such as washing & drying and packed lunches are available in some accommodations, you will be advised on your listing of what is available.
