This year Forestry England are taking some time to celebrate their fantastic cycling offer at Dalby Forest. Cycling is one of the key activities at Dalby and they already have really brilliant, well established cycling trails and facilities, and something for everyone when it comes to navigating the forest on two wheels.

As well as keeping children physically fit, research has shown that cycling can bring about a feeling of greater self-esteem, self-control and the ability to rise to a challenge.

The NEW Forest Rider pack has been designed to challenge children to complete a series of off-road rides, to help build their confidence and to enjoy the fantastic network of trails the nation’s forest have to offer. Aimed at children aged 7-11, the Forest Rider pack will encourage children to get out and about on their bikes in the forest and be safe and responsible forest riders!

In your pack, you will find:

o A logbook to record your rides

o A cool Forest Rider neck buff

o Pro cycle skill cards to help you be the best forest rider you can be. These include QR codes which, when scanned, will take you to videos teaching you how to do the tricks

o Stickers and activities

o The chance to solve a puzzle to enter a prize drawer to win £350 Halfords voucher, a family experience with Go Ape, a Forestry England Membership and more!


Packs are £5 from the Dalby Forest Visitor Centre, or £6.50 if bought online. You can find more information here:

Sutton Bank National Park Centre Cycle Trails

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.
