Local Volunteers Caring for Local Greenways
York's Greenways are traffic free paths for cyclists pedestrians and wheelchair users. They form part of the National Cycle network and the TransPennine Trail and link the city centre with the surrounding countryside. Well surfaced and with gentle gradients, they are suitable for families and residents and visitors of all ages. They are havens for wildlife and biodiversity.
Come out and explore the Greenways on foot, by bike or wheelchair - cycle the solar system, learn about the York - Selby path's past as a railway line to London.
Try the Foss Islands Greenway out to Osbaldwick and discover St Nick's Nature Reserve.
Head to Beningborough across Rawcliffe Ings or out to Rufford via Acomb
Stop for refreshments along the way and enjoy getting out into the green... there's lots to explore!
