Route 8

Copgrove Circular (26 miles)

Knaresborough, head up Boroughbridge Road and turn L to Farnham. R in Farnham and L at crossroads. L to Occaney and R into Copgrove. Take bridle path to Roecliffe. At end turn L to Bishop Monkton, L towards Burton Leonard, Farnham,Knaresborough and Beryl Burton path back to Harrogate.

The short ‘gravel’ section North of Copgrove is really just ‘distressed’ tarmac and easily navigable even on the most expensive of bikes…
