Coast to Coast Cycling Guide/GPX


The Way of the Roses is the newest of Great Britain’s coast-to-coast, long-distance cycle routes and is based on minor roads, disused railway lines and specially constructed cycle paths.

The route lies entirely within the counties of Lancashire and Yorkshire, crossing the Yorkshire Dales and the Yorkshire Wolds in the north of England, passing through the historic cities of Lancaster and York and scenic towns and villages including Settle, Pateley Bridge and Ripon.


The Way of the Roses is  170 miles (270 km) long, the route is designed for the whole range of cyclists, from families to cycling club riders. Although a challenge with some hard climbs—the highest point being over 1,312 feet (400 m)—the route is steadily increasing in popularity. The route is fully open and signed.

The route is named after the Wars of the Roses, a 15th-century war between the English dynastic families Lancaster and York.
