Thorpe Arch

This beautiful 12 mile route along a smooth flat bridleway from Thorpe Arch to Spofforth is almost completely traffic free. The relaxing route rides along an old railway line, which is now surrounded by woodland and fields. Setting off from Thorpe Arch, where there is ample free parking, the market town of Wetherby is skirted before heading onto Spofforth. There is an opportunity to grab some lunch in the village of Spofforth at the halfway point, and then head back to Thorpe Arch along the same route.  For anybody wanting to increase the distance of their cycling but still keep on the flat this route is perfect!
