The area offers a huge array of mountain biking route options with the main road, as mentioned, running north to south. Then there's the dismantled old mining railway, which meanders across High Blakey Moor to the west, to Bloworth Crossing and beyond. This was once off-limits to mountain bikes but has recently been upgraded to a bridleway. To the east, the same rail route skirts around the head of Rosedale leading past the old mine buildings to Hill Cottages.

About Great Fryupdale Descent
This is one of the best descents in the North Yorks Moors. It is a steep, rocky descent with tight switchbacks and a near-vertical drop off one side. Probably the most technical descent in the North York Moors, this on is not for the faint-hearted!
