THE LANGTOFT LOOP (37 km / 23 miles)

Our entry level route is a fine introduction to this part of the Wolds and is designed for fit families or those new to cycling. The landscape is characterised by gently undulating agricultural scenery, full of wide fields ploughed in neat lines and separated by knotty hawthorn hedges. The route takes you through the former important market town of Kilham before cutting back to Langtoft, on the road from Driffield.

Just beyond Langtoft and along the Sledmere Road, is the route's major climb which will be a test of your stamina. After this you arrive at a major B road before turning down past the deserted medieval village of Cowlam from whose heights you have great views across the Wolds and down to Driffield.

The long meandering descent takes you down pleasantly into Driffield, but watch out for the short sharp uphill section which will catch you unawares!
