If you are a keen cyclist then High Oak’s Grange makes a great place to stay as you can enjoy some of the best cycling routes in the North Yorkshire Moors.


The area is well equipped for the keen cyclist with 2 cycle shops in the neighbouring village of Thornton le Dale. If you need a quick bike repair or if you have forgotten something then there is no need to worry as both Pace and Dalby Bike Barn are just 1 mile away. You’ll also find Big Bear Bikes in Pickering too – you never know, you might end up upgrading your 2 wheels before the end of your holiday. If that’s not sufficient then you’ll find a further Dalby Bike Barn set within Dalby Forest itself which offers cycle hire, electric bike hire, merchandise and of course sells cycles too.

Getting out, exploring the beautiful area of the North York Moors on your bikes makes for a fantastic holiday in Yorkshire.

Here are some cycle route recommendations;


Dalby Forest

Located just a few minutes drive away from High Oaks Grange, the National Forest is a haven for mountain bikers looking for a thrill of a black route or for a gentle family bike ride along the green routes. There are 70km of cycle routes throughout the forest that venture up hill, down hill and across the moorlands too. The Dalby Visitor Centre is a great place to head before planning your cycle route.

If you want to work on your bike skills then you will find humps, bumps and small hills for young riders and Dixon’s Hollow bike park offers something a bit bigger for experienced riders to practice dirt jumps.

Here is our favourite 8 mile ride, perfect for families at Adderstone Cycle Trail 

If you would like to get a real taste of Dalby Forest then you can enjoy a 14 mile trail that takes in the forest and the moorland across Levisham and Hole of Horcom on the Dalby Forest Loop




Cinder Track

Closer to the coast you will find the Cinder Track which stretches from Scarborough to Whitby along the old railroad. This stretch of off-road track offers up some beautiful coastal views. Passing through Robin Hoods Bay, Ravenscar and Hayburn Wyke there is plenty of opportunity to sit and enjoy the view whilst you rest your legs, eat some fish and chips or enjoy a good Yorkshire pint. The full route is 21 ½ miles but you can choose to enjoy smaller sections. Full details can be found at Scarborough Borough Council




Pickering to Malton

Thanks to some EU funding, a new cycle path has recently opened linking the 2 market towns of Pickering and Malton. Malton is an historic town full of independent shops, pubs and cafes. It is now known as Yorkshire’s Food Capital and is the host of the Malton Food Lover’s Festival.  

The 12 mile route takes cyclists through beautiful villages, alongside lush farmland and key attractions including Beck Isle Museum, Eden Camp, Flamingo Land, Malton Museum, North Yorkshire Moors Railway and Pickering Castle. 




After covering all of those miles, our guests enjoy being able to return to High Oaks Grange and relax in our luxury accommodation. You may benefit from a reinvigorating soak in one of our private hot tubs that you’ll find in our cottages and lodges or sink into one of our Hypnos mattresses that you’ll find on all of our beds. After a good soak and an excellent night’s sleep in peaceful surroundings – the next day, you’ll be ready to explore more of the stunning North York Moors.
