Bike Rides and Rambles in the Howardian Hills
This leaflet gives you an overview of the walking, cycling and mountain biking opportunities in the Howardian Hills. The guide also provides information about visiting Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall and The Yorkshire Arboretum - all of which have great walker/cyclist friendly cafes and free parking.
A further series of three 'guided' routes in the Howardian Hills from Malton are also available. Three OS-mapped circular day rides on back-roads and country lanes, many of which are accessible by train from Malton Station.
Route 1 covers a route from Castle Howard and takes in Hovingham and Nunnington Hall. It can also be accessed at Malton, if you would like to arrive by train.
Route 2 covers the Rye valley to the north of the AONB.
Route 3 goes out into the Yorkshire Wolds and includes Kirkham Abbey on the south eastern edge of the AONB.
Mountain bikers also have an opportunity to explore the AONB on a variety of guided routes. North Yorkshire County Council have produced two leaflets with routes centred on Appleton-le-Street and Hovingham. (PDF's)
