DAY 4 Pocklington - Bridlington 43 miles

This 170 mile tour includes four days cycling and four nights in B&Bs along the way, the first night is at the start point in Morecambe the day before the tour starts. In the morning, after a good night's sleep in Morecambe and once you've filled up on a hearty breakfast, we'll come and collect you and your bikes from the B&B and take you to the start point on the sunny Morecambe Bay promenade. This is where we'll have a good chat about the route for the day, including places to stop off along the way, for both eating and sightseeing! The group will then set off and our support vehicle will leapfrog you throughout the day, supplying drinks and snacks when needed and some spare parts and tools for the bikes.

Each day we will give you a briefing about the day's ride in the morning and we'll always be a quick phone call away if you need any assistance on the route. You'll pass through the Forest of Bowland, the Yorkshire Dales, Nidderdale AONB and the Yorkshire Wolds, so there will be plenty of spectacular views for you to take in on your four day tour. Finally on the last day, once you've arrived in Bridlington and eaten the almost mandatory fish 'n' chips, we'll collect you, the group, your bikes and bring you back to Morecambe.
