Cayton Oct 15 sun

Filey to Oliver's Mount (Moderate 35km)

LEVEL: Moderate (35km return)

The ride takes you through the village of Hunmanby (known as Gateway the The Wolds) with its historic buildings and variety of refreshment stops.  A short climb takes you above the village to enjoy magnificent views of the coast, followed by a steep and windy decline to the small, picturesque village of Folkton. You then head along the quiet, flat road of Cayton Carr and into Cayton itself, and then the village of Osgodby offers a pleasant descent to the edge of Scarborough.  A short ride along a shared cycle path takes you to the start of the climb up to Olivers' Mount.  At the top, stopping at the War Memorial to appreciate the panoramic views over Scarorough is a must.  There is also an excellent tea room at the top, which is open all year round.  You will descend at the opposite side of the Oliver's Mount.  Take care as some of the bends are severe and can take you by surprise.  If you wish to visit Scarborough's array of attractions, you will need to take a detour from the route but it is well signed.  The return journey touches on a small section of the outbound journey at Osgodby, but this time takes you along the cliff-side road at Cayton Bay, offering spectacular views of the coast back towards Scarborough, through Lebberston to avoid the busy A165, which you do have to cross for the final run back into Filey.
