Cycling routes and support

Trans Pennine Trail

The Trans Pennine Trail is an exciting route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders that links the North Sea and Irish Sea, passing through the Pennines, alongside rivers and canals and through some of the most historic towns and cities in the north of England.

Selby district is located at the centre of the Yorkshire section of the path, which is ideal for cycling.  For further information please visit their website.

Cycle Yorkshire

Cycle Yorkshire is a useful resource for information relating to all things cycling in the area.  This includes information about routes and active cycle clubs.

Bike libraries

If you are a family or young person and you don't have access to a bike, this doesn't mean you cannot enjoy cycling in the Selby district.

Welcome to Yorkshire, as part of the legacy of the region hosting the Tour de Yorkshire Grand Depart in 2014, has supported a Bike Library in Tadcaster.  This offers the chance for those without a bike to get out and enjoy cycling in the district by borrowing from the Bike Library.

Donations of old or unwanted bikes are always welcome too: the Bike Library team will make them as good as new.
