Ryedale's Countryside - North Yorkshire
With the Cleveland Way and Wolds Way National Trails (www.nationaltrail.co.uk) and hundreds of miles of footpaths in the North Yorkshire countryside, this is great walking country, whether you fancy a short stroll or an all day hike.
if you prefer two wheels, the Moor to Sea Cycle route (www.moortoseacycle.net) links over 80 miles of forest tracks, quiet country lanes and the old coast railway. Or for the more adventurous, try the graded mountain bike routes at Dalby Forest ranging from peaceful trails to challenging climbs.
With a cracking coastline, your adventure doesnt have to be on dry land; surf boards to sail boat, speed boats to slow boats - you'll find plenty to choose from.
For something a bit different, take to the trees on one or two high wire courses or ride the thermals with Yorkshire Gliding Club. You'll also find riding centres, a racecourse and no fewer than ten scenic golf courses.
