Bring your own bike or hire one on site and enjoy the fantastic cycling facilities at Sutton Bank. It’s a great place to get your family cycling, providing access to many miles of bridleways, roads and tracks across the North York Moors. Our cycle trails use a mixture of natural and man made trails similar to those found in a purpose built trail centre. The following trails are available:
Cliff – family friendly 3 mile ‘green’ circular off-road cycle trail, mostly level, part of which follows the famous cliff edge.
Fort – 7.5 mile ‘blue’ trail with 361m ascent/descent (70% stone, 30% natural surface) runs out past the site of the Iron Age fort at Boltby Scar. A shorter loop of 5.5 miles avoids the ascent/descent and is suitable for families. The Fort route also includes part of the Cliff Trail along the cliff edge.
Drovers – add a little more distance and variety without increasing the difficulty on the new ‘blue’ 10 mile figure of eight trail which passes High Paradise Farm for refreshments.
Paradise – a 17-mile ‘red’ trail for experienced mountain bikers, through some of the most breath-taking scenery in the National Park. Expect a few technical features and a steep climb or two.
