Project Description



Cycling gives you the freedom to explore and to really enjoy this hidden corner of England at your own pace.

With the Trans Pennine Trail stretching from Hornsea down to Southport, there is a vast array of different cycling trail you could follow, catering for the most inexperience cyclist to even the most skilled cyclist.

Local Trans Pennine Trail places – The East Trans Pennine Trail covers the route from Barnsley to the great port of Kingston upon Hull and the seaside town of Hornsea. The route also includes the northern extension route from Selby to York.

You will travel through an amazing range of sights and scenery as the TPT passes through the countryside, towns and cities of the North of England from old railways and canals to riverside footpaths, woodland bridleways, historic city streets and quiet country lanes.

The route starts at RSPB Old Moor Barnsley, continuing through the Dearne Valley before reaching the River Don at Doncaster. It then turns north here via quiet lanes and alongside the New Junction Canal to Selby. At Selby an extension of the Trail continues north to the historic city of York, whilst the main Trail swings east following parallel to the Rivers Ouse and Humber. After passing through the foothills of the Yorkshire Wolds, the Trail reaches Kingston u.
