The Way of the Roses Sustrans cycle map is now out of print
The ‘Cycling the Way of the Roses’ Cicerone guide book has very good mapping – click here for details.
The Way of the Roses Sustrans cycle map covering the 170 miles (274 km) of National Cycle Network linking the Yorkshire and Lancashire coasts.
It runs between Morecambe on the west coast and Bridlington on the east coast, via the historic cities of Lancaster and York – Sustrans’ route NN69.
Part of the Challenge series from Sustrans, in a 1:100,000 scale, the map shows gradient profiles and visitor information, with detailed routes through towns and cities.
The route has been developed by Sustrans and offers a new ‘coast to coast’ cycling adventure through wonderful countryside and heritage. From Morecambe Bay to Bridlington Bay, the scenery is varied and beautiful with the Lune Valley, Forest of Bowland, Yorkshire Dales National Park, Vale of York and Yorkshire Wolds – all enjoyed from cycle paths, country lanes and quieter roads. The route is largely waymarked with the familiar blue Sustrans’ signs.
You can read about it on the Guardian newspaper’s website: “One of England’s great rides, this painstakingly planned route, completed in 2010, leads riders from the Irish Sea at Morecambe Bay 171 miles west to the North Sea at Bridlington. Taking in car‑free dedicated paths and byways as well as cycle lanes and quieter roads, riders pass quickly through Lancashire, over the Pennines into Yorkshire.”
