Holiday Information

The Way of the Roses coast to coast cycle route is a classic cycling holiday in the UK, opened in September 2010, and takes you from Morecambe in Lancashire to Bridlington in Yorkshire. As it crosses the country the route passes through the Lune Valley, the Forest of Bowland, the Yorkshire Dales, Nidderdale AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), the Vale of York and the Yorkshire Wolds, as well as the historic cities of Lancaster and York. There are interesting and attractive small towns like Settle, Grassington and Pately Bridge, countless little villages and beautiful, dramatic countryside.
This 170 mile route is made up of traffic-free paths, cycle lanes and quiet country lanes. The scenery is stunning and varied as you make your way from the Irish Sea to the North Sea across this fascinating part of Northern England.
The Way of the Roses is a rewarding and challenging trip, and a great way to cycle from coast to coast. With excellent transport connections to our meeting point at Driffield, it's easy to get to the start of this self-guided trip. With transfers to the start of the ride at Morecambe  included in the price, there's no better way to experience this fantastic route.
This self-guided trip is for a minimum of 2 people and accommodation, transfers, luggage transfers and emergency back up are all included. We also provide detailed route notes and maps to enable you to do the route self-guided. Nothing could be simpler!
