Way of the Roses cycle route - one of Britain's best 'coast-to-coast' routes

Welcome to the official online guide to the Way of the Roses coast to coast cycle route. For 170 miles between Morecambe and Bridlington, this highly popular route passes through historic cities York and Lancaster, and lesser known gems such as Settle, Pateley Bridge and Ripon.

From coast to coast, you'll cycle across beautiful, varied landscape including the Lune Valley, Yorkshire Dales, Nidderdale and the Yorkshire Wolds and use traffic-free paths, on-road cycle lanes, country lanes and quieter roads. It's a challenge but rewarding cycling adventure for all. Combine with other routes to make a longer cycle touring holiday.
