The route of the Way of the Roses
The Way of the Roses route has been developed by Sustrans and offers a ‘coast to coast’ cycling adventure through wonderful countryside and heritage.
From Morecambe Bay to Bridlington Bay, the scenery is varied and beautiful with the Lune Valley, Forest of Bowland, Yorkshire Dales National Park, Vale of York and Yorkshire Wolds. These are all enjoyed from cycle paths, country lanes and quieter roads. The route is largely waymarked with the familiar blue Sustrans’ signs.
I have cycled part of the route, and it certainly seems well signposted, but I would very much recommend having the map!
