Awesome ... awesome road!
Can be used as part of a circular route taking in the
Brilliant Stokesley to Helmsley Road also.
Flat out riding for 12 miles along the moor ridge ...
nice exposed well-sighted corners, no trees to it and
plenty of elevation change to keep you interested. I've
ridden it loads of times and not once seen any police
presence. There are lots of sheep knocking about but they
don't mind you flying past at full revs .... always worth
keeping an eye out for them wondering onto the road though!
Because it is so exposed it can get a little windy but you
usually find if it's windy in one direction it's ok in the
Nice pub halfway along for a drink if you fancy it.
