There are reportedly 544 cycles routes in the Driffield area, including established route for both road cycling and mountain bikes. Options range from short 3km cyclepaths up to the most challenging courses of 135km.
This area has long been popular with cyclists due to the attractive terrain, but the high profile Tour de Yorkshire helped to put the region firmly on the map as a destination of choice for professional and amateur cyclists alike. The second stage of the Tour from Selby to York took in a large swathe of the Wolds, passing close to Driffield as the competitors made their way from Beverley towards Malton.
A wealth of information can be found about cycling in and around Driffield on East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Driffield Cycle Map, which includes suggested routes for cyclists of all ages and abilities.
