Robin Hood's Bay

Robin Hood's Bay, Yorkshire, England

Loop - Hilly

The most popular historic village clinging to the cliffs of North Yorkshire is Robin Hood's Bay. Known in the past for smuggling, legend has it that goods could get from the sea to the top of the village without seeing daylight. Easy to believe as you cycle up the steep, narrow street between the houses. After hauling yourself up through the village, there is still 2km of climbing up onto the moors, a climb that has been used on the Tour de Yorkshire. The ride starts and ends at the 100-year-old swing bridge in the fishing town of Whitby. Briefly, at 31% at 10.28 Km, we believe this to be the steepest climb on FulGaz.
