A series of seven cycle maps, one of which is in the Pocklington area and district area, are now available to download onto smart phones or other compatible devices.

The maps include 41 rides of varying lengths across the East Riding.

There’s three rides created for Pocklington with the short route four and a half miles long, the middle one (8 miles long) taking in Burnby an Nunburnholme, and the long ride (12.5 miles) going through Bielby, Everingham and Hayton.

Designed by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s transport policy team, the maps can be found on the authority’s website.

The rides can now also be downloaded using simple step-by-step instructions onto Garmin, MemoryMap or SatMap devices.

The GPX routes can also be downloaded onto applications for Android or iPhones.

A council spokesman said: “The maps have proved very popular with local residents and visitors to the area and have recently been distributed to a range of venues, including caravan sites, B&Bs, cafes, glamping sites, tourist attractions, libraries, tourist information centres and customer service centres.

“If you wish to view any of the cycle maps and download the rides, visit www.eastriding.gov.uk/council/plans-and-policies/other-plans-and-policies-information/transport/transport-policy/#walkers-and-cyclists

“Paper copies of the maps are also still available by emailing transport.policy@eastriding.gov.uk.”
