Mountain Bike Routes - Malton

Mountain Bike Route - Malton - Castle Howard - Welburn - Terrington

General
This route combines excellent off-road cycling with some of the finest scenery in Ryedale. Not only do the views include the immediate area of the Howardian Hills but surprise vistas open out from unexpected vantage points: of the Mausoleum and the Temple of the Four Winds in the grounds of Castle Howard, of Sheriff Hutton Castle and the Vale of York beyond from around Brandwith Farm, and on the way back, of the North York Moors to the north and Castle Howard itself to the south, from the point where the 3 ½ miles of bridleway crosses the Castle Howard/Slingsby Road.

Malton
Malton, with its twin town of Norton across the River Derwent, is a thriving market town serving a large rural area. There is a cattle market on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays and a food, clothing and general market is held in the Market Place every Saturday. There is a good selection of pubs and hotels and a number of restaurants providing a wide range of meals.

With a station on the York to Scarborough railway line, Malton is a good base from which to explore Ryedale.

Castle Howard
Built on the site of the old village of Henerskelfe Castle Howard was designed by John Vanburgh for the 3rd Earl of Carlisle (family name Howard). Most of it was built between 1702 - 1731. Although the route itself does not pass the entrance to the house itself, those wishing to visit it can take the obvious road route around to it.

Welburn
After a ride through the woods, Welburn is suddenly seen in a most attractive setting. The church of St John was built by the 7th Earl of Carlisle in 1865. the pub ‘The Crown and Cushion' serves meals and bar snacks.

Terrington
A pretty village with some handsome houses. The church of All Saints, showing evidence of an 11th Century nave, was built in the 12th century and 14th centuries. Terrington Hall, on your left as you pass through the village, was built as a rectory in 1827 and is now a school.

Total Distance - 20 miles

Approx Cycling Time - 3 1/2 hours
