Sustrans' County Durham and North Yorkshire cycle map shows the National Cycle Network and local routes in this area. This cycle map includes the beautiful northernmost Yorkshire Dales National Park valleys of Swaledale and Wensleydale, which are linked by a section of the 130-mile circular Yorkshire Dales Cycleway.

Stage 1 of the 2014 Grand Depart of the Tour de France came this way over the challenging climbs of Buttertubs Pass and Grinton Moor.

About the County Durham and North Yorkshire cycle map

This cycle map covers sections of several routes running through County Durham and North Yorkshire, including:

  • Sea to Sea (or C2C)
  • Walney to Wear and Whitby (or W2W)
  • North Sea Cycle Route
  • Yorkshire Dales Cycleway.

There are also five individual day rides.

National Route 71 runs through Arkengarthdale linking the highest pub in Britain at Tan Hill and the very welcoming village of Reeth at the meeting point with Swaledale.

The Tan Hill Inn is also on the coast-to-coast Walney to Wear or Whitby (W2W) cycle route. From there the route heads across the Greta Valley to the bustling market town of Barnard Castle, where you can either head for Sunderland’s Wearmouth via Hamsterley Forest (with 33 miles of waymarked bike trails) and historic Durham city, or follow the River Tees to near Darlington and finally Whitby via the Esk Valley in the North York Moors National Park.

The Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors are also linked by the continuation of National Route 71 from Reeth across the Vale of York via Northallerton to join the north-south running National Route 65 along the Cleveland and Hambleton Hills.

Just to the north of Weardale at the top of the map and deeper into the North Pennines AONB runs another, and perhaps the most famous UK coast-to-coast route, the original 136-mile Sea to Sea (C2C) cycle route.

Being on the East Coast Mainline, Darlington makes a great entry point to the region and connects via National Route 14 to coastal Hartlepool which lies above the mouth of the River Tees and at the southern end of the secretive Durham Heritage Coast. This route also connects with Durham itself, home to the Cathedral and Castle World Heritage Site.

National Routes 1 and 65 run through Tees Valley capital Middlesbrough and form part of the North Sea Cycle Route (EuroVelo 12).
