Route Description:

MIDDLESBOROUGH > STOKESLEY > HELMSLEY > PICKERING > SCARBOROUGH > WHITBY > GUISBOROUGH > MIDDLESBROUGH (B1365, B1257, A170, A165, A171)

TIME TAKEN: A GOOD FOUR HOURS TO FULLY ENJOY

From the hustle and bustle of a busy Teeside high street to the peace and tranquillity of both woodland and coastline, this route is as diverse in humanity as it is in terrain. Away from the urban melee, red grouse fly over the heather moors, streams wind along the secluded dales and waves crash against the rugged cliffs of the coast.

It truly is a heavenly place to ride a motorcycle. The first leg of the journey takes you on the Stokesley to Helmsley run, known by the regulars as the ‘Northern TT or the Helmsley Grand Prix’ — so be wary of trying to tag on to any locals as their knowledge could be your undoing. The road is as twisty as it is undulating, so just take your time to get to know it and stay safe. The speed limits on the road from Helmsley on to Scarborough are well enforced and it is often busy in the summer months, but at least you’ll have time to enjoy those fantastic moorland views.

Scarborough’s well-kept beaches are a great stop-off point for a fish and chip supper and a breather before heading north to Whitby, where there’s plenty of scope to lose a few hours taking in the sights of this historic fishing town.

The ride back to Middlesbrough is varied along the A171, or you can drop into the National Park and visit Goathland — aka Aidensfield — from the hit TV show Heartbeat set in the Sixties, this feel-good show about a bike-loving copper aired in the Nineties.

Quick instructions

  • Leave Middlesbrough on the B1365
  • Go across the A172 and onto the B1257 to Helmsley
  • Turn left onto the A170 to Scarborough
  • Then take the A165 then the A171 to Whitby
  • Meander through the moors or head back to Middlesbrough on the A171 via Guisborough
