For mountain biking and cycling in the area, head for Guisborough Forest. The forest is an ideal place to explore the surrounding countryside. Attractive views over Guisborough and Roseberry Topping make this a popular destination for cyclists.

The forest offers three dedicated cycle routes of differing ability and gradients, and each route is waymarked for your ease. There are many other non-waymarked bridleways throughout the forest, which are suitable for the more experienced rider.

Eston Hills offers mountain biking for the more experienced, routes are not waymarked and can offer you a challenging ride.

The Bridleway network across the Borough can also be utilised for cycling and mountain biking, but some routes do not link to places of interest and access is usually by road.
For more information on cycling in the borough please contact Guisborough Forest Visitor Centre on (01287) 631132.

Off road code
On bridleways and shared use paths, the cyclists must give way to walkers and horse-riders. Cyclists are likely to be the fastest travellers on these routes, and must be careful not to disturb other users. You should also observe the Off-Road Code:

  • Keep to Rights of Way - use maps to plan your route in advance
  • Check your bike before you set out
  • Take adequate supplies of food and drink, waterproofs, tools and spares
  • Give way to horses and walkers
  • Ride in small groups of two or three
  • Be kind to plants and creatures
  • Prevent erosion
  • Close gates behind you
  • Take your litter home and guard against fire
