Length: 24.7 mi • Est. 9 h 57 m
A nice bike ride from Selby to York along the old railway line, passing near Naburn and Escrick along the route, crossing over the river Ouse. The path is popular with cyclists, runners and walkers. You can start at various points along the way if you want a slightly shorter route. Do not bike along the A19. There is a separate path running alongside it for a short distance before you cut off through Riccall and onto the old railway line. For the kids, the railway line contains the planets of the solar system along the route, marked out in the scale of distance and size between the planets. There are a few birdwatching areas along the route, and also a honesty cafe. In a few places the path can be a bit bumpy from tree roots pushing up the paving, but it's still perfectly usable. A great way to get into York and explore all of its history.Show more

Length: 2.3 mi • Est. 59 m
A circular walk in Knavesmire, York's Racecourse in North Yorkshire. York's Knavesmire is one of the premier horse racing tracks in Europe. On non-race days, the vast grass space inside the racecourse is open for public access. It is a really sociable place for you and your dog as there are usually plenty of dogs to play with and the humans are often willing to chat too. The route is only accessible on days when horse racing is not taking place, so check the Knavesmire website before you set out. The walk is almost entirely flat with no gradients to speak of. There are no stiles, gates or steps on route. The walk follows a wide tarmac track that runs around the inside the grass race track. The route is popular with cyclists, runners and dog walkers. Please remember to clean up after your dog. You may be sharing the tarmac track with occasional racecourse service vehicles so take care with children and dogs. Allow 1 hour. Show more
