About

Just inland from Filey Bay, Humanby was once one of the 12 market towns in the East Riding and still retains its own station on the Yorkshire Coast Railway line. From here you visit small villages and hamlets as you ride around the broad swathe of the Great Wold Valley and either side of the Gypsey Race - the only, albeit intermittent, surface stream on the Wolds. Thwing takes it name from the Scandinavian language meaning 'strip of high land', there's an art gallery at Willerby Wold Farm (Wed-Sun), while Fordon has what must be one of the tiniest churches.
