- Supported by komoot, Edge of Heaven - The Film follows three round the world cyclists, Mark Beaumont, Jenny Graham and Markus Stitz, on a stunning journey along the beautiful Yorkshire Coast.
The new Route YC cycle routes have been designed by Great British Gravel Rides author and Bikepacking Scotland founder Markus Stitz. The network of twelve new cycling routes ranging from 9 to 260 miles (15 - 415 km) in length can be found exclusively on komoot.
At the heart of the route collection is the Route YC Adventure Route. It starts and finishes at Scarborough Railway Station and features stunning cliffs and beaches, remote moors, dark skies, picturesque villages and towns. Designed for gravel bikes, the bikepacking route is equally fun on mountain bikes, combining a good mix of gravel paths, singletrails, cycle path and quiet roads - at times on fast and flat sections, at other times negotiating the hills that give riders a taste of real Yorkshire grit. A friendly Yorkshire welcome is guaranteed where riders stop.
A shorter bikepacking route, the Route YC Adventure Weekender, packs in everything that is unique about the Yorkshire Coast into a long weekend, and a Route YC Cycle Touring Route from the ferry terminal in Hull to Staithes, offers a stunning journey along the coast on touring and e-bikes.
Released on February 5th 2024 and supported by Komoot, Edge of Heaven - The film follows three round the world cyclists, Mark Beaumont, Jenny Graham and Markus Stitz, on a stunning journey along the beautiful Yorkshire Coast.
Markus Stitz teamed up with the Scottish world record holders for a journey through some of the region’s best coast and countryside scenery, visiting local attractions on route.
Whilst of course the bike's the best way in my humble opinion to explore the world on two wheels, it's not just about the riding. It's about discovering these beautiful little Yorkshire villages and little market towns. There's a lot of history in this area which I've really appreciated coming across and seeing by bike.says Mark Beaumont
