Humble Bee Farm is proud to be part of Cycle England, encouraging cyclists of all abilities to enjoy exploring the area on two wheels!
As well as having the Yorkshire Wolds literally on our doorstep, we are just a short drive away from the North York Moors Cycle way, which includes spectacular landscapes from sea views to moorland vistas, and from cool forests to hidden valleys.
Yorkshire is forever connected with cycling following the successful Tour de France ‘Grand Depart’ in 2014 and the annual Tour de Yorkshire cycle event.
With its hills, dales, moors and coast, Yorkshire is a fantastic county in which to take to two wheels!
