Acomb Green to Rawclife Country Park

Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.

What other riders think of this route

Sky Ride Local in York

If you're fairly confident on your bike and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, our Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills along the way, rides take place on mainly quiet roads with plenty of sights along the way. Rides are between 6 and 20 miles long, at a moderate pace of between 7 and 10 miles an hour.

Come and join us for this Steady ride from Acomb Green out to Rawclife Country Park. We will head out on a mixture of York's Orbital Route, NCN route 65 and quiet roads to help us make our way to Clifton Park before continuing on to Rawclife Country Park. We will have time for a small break in the ride to see the great activities that are available at the park and maybe for some of the more adventurous of us to try the Pump Bike Track. Our route back will skirt close to the River Ouse before joining back up with the Orbital Route on our way back to Acomb Green.
