Day 2: Slow Tour of Yorkshire

Hull to Hornsea

On the second day we followed a disused railway from Hull to Hornsea.

Hornsea is:

  • a small seaside resort
  • known for its blue flag beach
  • well known for its pottery
  • an acquired taste
  • an up and coming town.

There was no major towns along the way on this path, only minor villages. We tried to to stop of for coffee and cake, but it’s only open seasonally.

The ride was only 27km. As usually the urban path in Hull needs a bit of repair, but as we got out onto unsealed path it became better. The Hornsea rail trail is part of the trans-Pennine trail and represents the eastern end.

In summary, quite a beautiful and relatively relaxing ride.

We caught up with the relatives for lunch in Hornsea. Then folder our bikes back up to take the bus back back to Hull.
