Hired some bikes from Trailways (1 mile outside Whitby on the road to Robin Hood's Bay) and spent a lovely sunny day cycling to Ravenscar and back. Excellent support and advice when choosing the bikes from a guy that clearly knows his stuff. My 9 year old son and I managed the 'long pull' up to Ravenscar but my partner... More

Whitby was fascinating - loved the harbour and open topped bus ride. Abbey on hill was very interesting with an excellent open air Frankenstein play - actors extremely entertaining. Nice walk down into some quaint streets.

We followed the Cinder Path towards Whitby and hired a tandem for 3hrs from the charismatic and really helpful owners of 'Trailways" company in Whitby. We decided to return it after 2hrs as we wanted to revisit Whitby's shops by car. Upon returning our tandem we saw the owner explaining how a power assisted bike works and we even had... More

We took our kids from Whitby to Robin Hoods Bay for the afternoon. Easy cycling. Our kids (10, 8 and 5) are not the most confident riders - the 5 year old went on a rented tag-along - but we all enjoyed the trip. Great views. Hillier than you might imagine for an old railway line. Plenty of ice cream... More

About 45 miles if you make the full return trip. Not flat - surprisingly, but lovely views and a couple of places to stop for coffee in between. Signage is fair, but on a couple of occasions I needed to retrace my path to seek inconspicuous signs I'd missed. Will ride again.

Trails are in good condition and its not too strenuous if you are used to riding. Its good starting at either end, with the highest point in Ravenscar - the town that never happened. Robin Hoods Bay is worth a pit stop as well for a cuppa and scone. Also making a day of it by starting at one end,... More

This is a great walk which takes in Ravenscar and many of the other small villages along the way. Being an old railway line it is level and there are a couple of places for tea/coffee along the way. The railway continues North at Sansend in the car park at the north of the village

The cinder track runs 23 miles from Whitby to Scarborough via Robin Hood's Bay. It goes along a disused railway line. There are tunnels to go through and a long, high viaduct which goes over the River Esk and the North Yorkshire Moor railway track. It must have been a great feat of engineering in its day. Nowadays it provides... More

We stayed at Captain Cooks Haven and decided to walk the trail way to Robin Hoods Bay. It was a beautiful walk - lots of photographs were taken - particularly from Larpool viaduct. At Robin Hoods Bay we had fish and chips and a look around at the quaint little village and then we walked back to Whitby. (Slightly harder... More
