A National Trust property is challenging children and adults alike to ditch the car and get on their bikes with a special offer that runs from the last moments of summer sunshine until the end of the year.
Both the Olympics and the Paralympics have shown countries throughout the world where spirit and sheer determination can get you. So why not take their lead and enjoy some of the beautiful cycling routes that can be found in our county.
To-kick start the National Trust cycling challenge, Beningbrough Hall and Gardens is extending a trial offer for cyclists until the end of 2012. For more information and a route from York visit their dedicated blog.
If you’re more comfortable on four wheels than two, a Noughties to Forties themed event on Sunday 16 September will include a display of vintage cars from the North East Club for Pre-War Austins. To accompany this spectacular display there will also be radios from decommissioned Halifax bombers that will be transmitting Morse code. This is a fantastic opportunity to come and get a glimpse of the past and pay a visit to Beningbrough’s World War II room in the hall.
