Hi,

I'm staying at Keldy with my wife for a couple of days and starting to plan what to go and see while i'm around the area.

We are alsom taking our bikes and are looking for any easy cycle rides around the area.

Can anyone suggest any good cycle rides and also what to go and visit around the area

There's lots to do in the area but of course it depends on your interests as what I love to do might not be your choice. So could you give us some more info?

Also, when are you travelling and I assume you will you have a car?

Hi, I'm visiting at the beginning of Feb and I will have my car so quite happy to drive to various places.

We are hoping to do a bit of bike riding if there are any local cycle tracks with not much traffic and also a bit of walking but not too far.

Quite like visiting towns and i'm also a member of National Trust and just applied for English Heritage

Some places like Castle Howard will still be closed. However, there’s still plenty to see and do. I’ll list a few of my favourites that you can do a bit of research on, including some indoor attractions in case the weather is unkind.

1) Some walking on the North Yorkshire Moors – numerous walks in an area of great scenic beauty. You could walk along the old Roman road on Wheeldale Moor, or go up to the Roman camps at Cawthorne for example.

2) North Yorks Moors Railway www.nymr.co.uk

3) City of York www.visityork.org

4) Yorkshire Air Museum www.yorkshireairmuseum.org

5) Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay www.whitby.co.uk www.robin-hoods-bay.co.uk

6) Hutton le Hole – very picturesque village with fascinating outdoor museum www.ryedalefolkmuseum.co.uk

7) Eden Camp, Malton www.edencamp.co.uk

8) Rievaulx Abbey – English Heritage

I think there are cycling trails in Danby Forest.

Pickering itself is interesting. The White Swan is a lovely pub in the Market Square that does very good food.

Whitby is famous for its excellent fish and chips – either the magpie Café or Trenchers.

Other good pubs – the hare at Scawton, Fox and Hounds at Sinnington, Royal Oak, Gillamoor, Black Swan, Oldstead

Unless I missed it in the earlier posts - a great trip is on the North Yorks Moors (steam) Railway. You go through lovely countryside, see places where 'Heartbeat' is filmed and can end up at Whitby for the seaside and Dracula (and very good fish and chips).

We visited the Eden Camp Museum by Malton a couple of years ago and it was really interesting.

We also enjoyed a meal in the cafe there and it was a really good meal at a decent price.

We are planning another visit this year and looking at the website,it now has some new attractions....even better! :)

Beck Isle Museum, the Church and Castle, NYMR, Flea market and Antique Centre in Pickering.

Market day in Pickering is Monday.

Ryedale Folk Museum in Hutton Le Hole, Eden Camp.

Helmsley worth a visit for a half day.

Walking on the moors,cycling trails in Dalby Forest.

Half an hour to Whitby or Scarborough or indeed York.

Spice 4 U is Pickering's best kept secret for food.

Fox and Hound at Sinnington is good but our favourite is the Anvil at Sawdon.

If in Scarborough Francis tearooms on the South Cliffe or Roasters for coffee

In Whitby Marie Antoinettes. Greens is an outstanding sea food reataurant.
