Route 169 of the National Cycle Network, known locally as the Scunthorpe Ridgeway, travels north to south through Scunthorpe and passes through green, open spaces with beautiful views of the Trent Valley.

This route was designed to link communities together, providing better access for everyday journeys to schools, local shops and workplaces.

The Ridgeway forms a spinal route through Scunthorpe, from Manor Park in the south through to Normanby Hall to the north of the town. 

There are plans to link the Ridgeway to the large neighbouring village of Winterton in the future.
