Overview
With beautiful architecture and medieval history, York is widely considered among England’s must-see cities—but pounding the sidewalks on foot takes time and effort. On this tour, hop into the saddle and spin through the city streets by bicycle, and hit top attractions like York Minster with ease. Follow safe routes inside and outside the ancient city walls, with your guide bringing York’s colorful Roman and Viking history to life.
What to Expect
We start at the Gillygate pub (rear of), which is a city centre pub and an easy location to find.  From here we kit you out with a suitable bike and helmet, introduction to the safety features and the route.  We set off at a gentle pace and the first of our 8 to 10 stops is in the most historic part of the city.  From here, after a short stretch on the road we travel on mainly riverside paths and gardens and looping back into the old part of town.  We touch on tales of villains and heroes and the rise and fall of both.  The tours start at 10.30 daily with additional tours at 2pm (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) from 6th April 2018.  Full directions and map can be seen at this link:  http://www.yorkcyclingtours.com/map

Fantastic history tour

Fantastic way to learn some of the history of York. Cecil is enthusiastic and knows so much of the history of the areas we cycled. There was no rush and Cecil was happy to take the time to answer all questions. Would definitely recommend.

In March we booked a night or two before and had no problems. I guess it depends on the month and your desire for definitely doing it. Light rain is fine. Wind and heavy rain are not nice, but less likely now.
