How long would it take (approximately) to cycle from York to Leeds?

maybe from the center of York to somewhere like the Headrow.

    JTS's answer is perfectly correct but that is taking into account the use of a 70mph dual carriageway (A64).

    I would probably assume around 3/4 hours (including breaks and getting lost) using the back roads parallel to the dual carriageway.

    Although it is legal to cycle on a dual carriageway i would not recommend it due to a safety aspect.

    That will be around 25 miles.

    So travelling one mile in around 8-10 minutes, it should take you 200 minutes, which is around 3.5 hours. If you're taking it slow and not riding fast, it'll be around that time.

    However, if you're a keen cyclist, or have a good fitness level, you should easily manage a mile every 5 minutes, which would be around 125 minutes, so just over 2 hours.
