A nice easy route near York. Being York it's pretty flat, but when time is short, it's a good afterwork ride.


Very muddy in winter in places, but nearly always rideable

Detailed description

Follow the obvious bridleway along the river. At the confluence of the Nidd and Ouse, turn left and follow the path to the small hamlet of the Moor Monkton. By the farm turn left and follow the path along the edge of the fields. After crossing a small road you pass along a gravel driveway, until you then have to cross a muddy grassy field.

Cross the field and join the gravel track, which will lead to the edge of Poppleton and the start of the route.
