A longish, but flat and reasonably easy route around the edge of York.
Roads, cycle tracks and farm tracks. Suitable for a hybrid bike in dry conditions.
Hazards and warnings
Nettle in summer are a problem on some of the less popular paths. Do watch out when cross the A64 as traffic is very fast.
See route map. The entire route is on legal rights of way, although some sections can be hard to find and not very well marked. A OS 25,000 k map of the area is recommended.
