The way of the roses 'coast to coast' cycle route opened on 11th September 2010.
The way of the Roses route runs for 170 well signed miles between Morecambe on Lancashire's Irish sea coast and Bridlington on Yorkshire's North Sea coast. It passes through the historic cities of York and Lancaster, and lesser known gems such as Settle, Pateley Bridge and of course the beautiful Burnsall.
Between the broad sweeps of Morecambe and Bridlington Bays, you'll be cycling across a beautiful, changing landscape comprising the Lune Valley, Forest of Bowland, Yorkshire Dales, Nidderdale, Vale of York and the Yorkshire Wolds. The route consists of traffic-free paths, on-road cycle lanes, country lanes and quieter roads, all part of the National Cycle Network.
The way of the Roses is suitable for cyclists of all levels and abilities.
The route normally commences in Morecambe and the Red Lion in Burnsall is located 51.5 miles from here, so perfect for a first night stop.
We are able to offer safe storage of bikes, along with pack lunches for the following day.
Please proceed to our 'Mid-week specials' for accommodation rates.
