About Yorkshire Ridings

The three Yorkshire Ridings – North, West, East – are the historic divisions of Yorkshire. (No South Riding, because ‘North Riding’ etc is a contraction of ‘North Thirding’. The Vikings thought in threes, much as I do when entering a Wetherspoon.)

My 'ridings' are a series of occasional bike trips exploring England's largest county.

Eight Compass Rides, each from my home in York to the cyclable extremities of the historic border (N, S, E, W, NE, NW, SE, SW), will form the central rides on this site – see the map on the right. They are:

N: York to Redcar   On-road   3 Apr 2017
S: York to Harthill   On-road   4 Apr 2017
E: York to Bridlington   On-road   21 Apr 2017
W: York to Dunsop Bridge   On-road   25–27 Jul 2017
NE: York to Robin Hood's Bay   Off-road   31 May–1 Jun 2017
NW: York to Cauldron Snout   Off-road
SE: York to Spurn Point   Off-road   11–12 Jun 2017
SW: York to Saddleworth   On-road   5–6 May 2017

There are also blog posts for other, one-off trips to various places. They're listed by place, and also by date, in the menu bar at the side.
