Regular price £20


The North York Moors National Park designates September as Mindful Month; a way to slow down after a hectic summer and explore the great outdoors at a steadier pace.

Mindful Month is also a great time to share your love of cycling with partners and family. Minds & Miles is a cycling event created to help you slow down, look up and enjoy the North York Moors National Park by bike - and share it with your favourite people.


The Rides

We've got four fully signposted routes to choose from for every bike and every rider, making the day ideal for all abilities. 

Our Road Routes take in quiet country lanes and rolling roads. Our 50km route is a gentle ride skirting the Howardian Hills and takes in only 2,000ft of climbing. It's an ideal route for beginner road riders. Our 80km route features a fantastic scenery route around over some more challenging terrain (4,000ft) before joining the 50km route for the rolling route home. 

Our Gravel Route takes in the best North York Moors gravel surrounding Sutton Bank including moorland tracks, single-track hard-packed bridleways and tree-covered forestry tracks.

Our Family Route is an off-road traffic-free route ideal for hybrid or mountain bikes. The 25km ride features gentle gradients and quiet bridleways for families to ride at their leisure. There's lots of spots on route to stop and enjoy a picnic with fabulous views, or why not stop at High Paradise Farm half way around for a well earned coffee/hot chocolate and a cake to fuel you home. Bike hire is available at Sutton Bank Bikes but you must book in advance.
