|Long but gentle circuit using by roads and bridle paths where possible. Would suit most bikes, but racers may struggle on the section from Huby to Skelton (Brownmoor Lane), could use B1363 instead.|
|Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?|
|Route passes Beningborough Hall, and close to RAF airfield at Linton. Not sure of any bike shops on route, but good local amenities in Easingwold for refreshments.

|Enjoyable route, especially around Overton up to Easingwold following cycle route 65. On my road bike the track, as stated, looked a little dicey from Huby to Skelton. So I opted for the B1363, but this road is very uninspiring and a lot of traffic as well, which is what we cyclists try to avoid. Will attempt Brownmoor Lane next time, which, according to my OS Lanranger map, is only a bit rough for a mile or so. Nice ride though, definitely recommended.|

|Just finished this route, and it is a very good route for somebody trying to get back into cycling (like me).|
For the most part all the roads are quiet and some nice scenery to take in.
As the previous poster suggested Brown Moor lane is not much fun on a road bike but it doesn't take too long.
Really enjoyed this cycle.
