Two wheeled adventures at River View Pateley
Sometimes a walk just doesn’t cut it when it comes to getting the red blood cells flowing! Cycling is one of the best ways to explore the beautiful countryside around the River View Pateley holiday cottage in Pateley Bridge. The area offers a variety of cycling routes for riders of all levels, from gentle countryside roads to more challenging hill climbs.
The roads around Pateley Bridge will take you to Brimham Rocks, Fountains Abbey and Scarhouse Reservoir in a relatively short time with relatively little effort, and the cathedral city of Ripon is less than an hour’s ride away.
For those looking for a bit more of a challenge, the surrounding hills and valleys of Nidderdale offer a variety of hill climbs and more strenuous routes. The area is particularly popular with road cycling enthusiasts, who come to test their endurance and to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the North Yorkshire Dales. The Cote de Lofthouse was one of the most challenging climbs in the Tour de Yorkshire and is less than a 30 minute ride away.
The Nidderdale area is also great for mountain biking, with its rocky terrains and challenging off-road routes. For mountain bikers, the area offers a wealth of trails and paths, some of which are technical and demanding, and others which are more suited for family and leisure cycling. The tourist information at the library on King Street will have information about all the cycling routes in the area and provide guidance about where cycling is permitted.
However, whether you're a seasoned cyclist or just looking to try something new, it is always important to plan ahead, be aware of the weather conditions, wear appropriate gear and follow the road safety rules. Remember to always be aware of the traffic on the road, and consider using quieter back roads and lanes when possible.
