This tour has proved very popular for the last two years and takes us on an eastward route towards the Cleveland Hills. We ride the famous Stokesley to Helmsley road considered by many as one of the best biking roads in the country. The road with its sweeping bends and smooth tarmac takes you through beautiful valleys and woodlands and has been likened by many to the famous Nurburgring. Time to relax over a coffee in the quaint market town of Helmsley before moving on  to the North York Moors National Park. The Park originally famous for its connections with Captain Cook has increased in popularity due to the television programmes  'Heartbeat'  and "The Royal". During the day you will get the opportunity to visit many of the locations seen on TV including the fictional village of 'Aidensfield'. The railway station there you may also recognise  having been used in the filming of "Harry Potter".

Below the moors lies Yorkshires "Heritage Coastline" and the old whaling town of Whitby, still a busy fishing port, it now depends more on tourism through its connections with the famous explorer Captain Cook, and inspiration for Bram Stokers  "Dracula".

Your guided tour commences 0930 Saturday morning returning to your hotel at approximately 1700. The actual tour route will be decided on the day and will be fully guided with one or more experienced guides.
