Cyclists visiting the Yorkshire Dales National Park will be able to try out a new route from this weekend.
Saturday will see the opening of the 170-mile Way of the Roses cycle route from Morecambe to Bridlington via Lancaster, the Forest of Bowland, the National Park, Nidderdale, Ripon, York and the Yorkshire Wolds.
It is being opened to tie in with the 15th anniversary of the National Cycle Network developed by the sustainable transport charity Sustrans.
