North York Moors Mountain Biking - Moorland Trails is the ninth title in our bestselling series of UK mountain bike guidebooks. This book features 21 routes in the North York Moors National Park, between 10 and 77 kilometres in length, suitable for all levels of mountain bikers.
The North York Moors National Park contains some of the most beautiful moorland scenery in the UK – sea views, hidden villages and valleys, wild and bleak moors ... It also contains some of the country's best mountain biking with wild and fast moorland tracks, technically demanding singletrack and intricate and exciting forest riding.
The routes have been put together by Tony Harker, a moors local and experienced mountain biker and founder of the moors-dedicated Muddybums mountain biking website. Each route is described with easy-to-follow directions and details of distance, grade of difficulty, refreshment stops and is plotted on Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 scale mapping.
A Bonus Section includes Top Tens for downhills and singletrack, plus information about the purpose-built trail centres at Dalby Forest and Guisborough and the Moors to Sea cycle network. A comprehensive appendix includes further information about finding places to eat, drink & stay.
