Cycle Lanes and Routes

Cycle routes on the carriageway, on footways either shared with or segregated from pedestrians, or specially designated cycle paths.

Cycle lanes and routes

There is a real mixture of cycle lanes and routes in the Craven District from local to national routes.

Due to the rural nature of Craven and the lack of cycle lanes there are relatively low levels of 'Utility Cycling' (Cycle to Work, School, Shops etc). However, over a third of car journeys are less than 2 miles and could easily be cycled or walked.   North Yorkshire County Council provide some information on Cycle lanes and routes.

For the cycle tourist these are all posted on our Cycle Tourism in Craven  tourism web page.

Craven District Council has produces a set of Recreational Ride guides that contain over 20 easy to moderate cycle rides on quiet rural lanes, traffic free tracks and paths. These are between 5 and 15 miles distance and are available to download and print on our Cycling in Craven leisure web pages, along with other cycling related information.

And there is an excellent new site Cycle The Dales created by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority.
