North East | News & Events

Come and join us on our leisurely cycle rides around York.

York Sustrans volunteer rangers organise leisurely cycle rides around York mostly on traffic-free cycle tracks. Check the calendar! 

The rides are free and there's no need to book, but it would be helpful, if you've never been before if you could let us know that you are interested. See our contacts page

Our rides are on the first Friday of the month. The pace is easy and the distance short. We cycle for 45 minutes to an hour to a cafe. After the cafe stop, you can either cycle back at the same easy pace for 5 to 8 miles or take a longer, (around 15 miles) route home.

Under 16s please bring an adult. Under 6s are best on a tag-along or seat.

PLEASE BRING A SPARE INNER TUBE FOR YOUR BIKE
