An ideal route for more experienced and confident cyclists passing through the scenic villages of Bempton, Burton Fleming and Rudston before returning to Bridlington along the ancient Woldgate, made famous in David Hockney’s artworks. 31 miles/50km or 4 hours riding time. There is an option of reducing the route to 19miles/31km.
Turn right from Sewerby Hall on to Church Lane. At the next junction turn right onto the B1255 and then first left onto Jewison Lane, following National Cycle Network (NCN) route 1 signs. Continue to follow NCN 1 to Bempton. Here you can take a detour of just over 1 mile to the RSPB site at Bempton Cliffs which is signed from the village. Otherwise, continue to follow NCN 1, taking care at the crossing of the A165 as this is a busy, fast route. Continue on NCN 1 through Grindale. For the main route take the first right after the village following NCN 1 signs towards Reighton. At this point the shorter route now carries straight on, taking a left turn signed to Rudston and Burton Agnes and rejoining the main route with a left turn at the next T junction signed to Rudston. For the main route continue following NCN 1 signs through Reighton to Hunmanby (take care, this road can be busy at peak times).
Follow NCN 1 through Hunmanby onto Malton Road then turn left onto Hall Park Road. At the crossroads turn right towards Burton Fleming, continue straight on to the next crossroads and turn left. In Burton Fleming turn right at the crossroads near the church and at the next crossroads turn left. After the bend, turn right towards Rudston.
While cycling through Rudston consider a quick detour to have a look at the historic monolith in the churchyard, otherwise turn right and then left following signs for Burton Agnes. Go straight on at the next junction for Burton Agnes. At a sharp right bend turn left back onto NCN 1. Follow the signs for NCN 1 which will take you through Bridlington Old Town and past the Priory. Where NCN 1 turns right onto Limekiln Lane, go straight ahead and back to Sewerby.
