We have bike storage, bike wash, workshop with tools and stands, kit room for drying wet gear and a wealth of local knowledge to give some great pointers on where to ride.
We have some of the quietest and most scenic routes and trails in the UK. Our area has hosted stages of The Tour of Britain, Tour de Yorkshire and the UCI Mountain Biking XC World Cup. We have everything from gentle three hour rides around rural lanes and tracks right through to full day epics on and off road across the steep valleys of the North York Moors to the Yorkshire Coast and back. We're also handy for cycling in the Howardian Hills and the Yorkshire Wolds so we're at the centre of a cycling paradise!
We also offer something extra through Gone Mountain Biking our guiding, coaching and training business. We offer stays of two nights or more with guided rides (on road or mountain bike) to help you get straight to the best routes and mountain bike skills coaching days or courses for all levels from beginners to budding XC racers.
Our guided rides on and off road are designed to get you straight the the best routes and trails, to see the best views and pop in at the best tea rooms and cafes. You wont be worried about carrying maps or taking a wrong turn. The rides are designed around your needs and at your level. Mike will guide you and is also a trained cycle mechanic who can offer help and support with those minor mishaps.
Our road rides are at your pace whether it's a leisurely road ride out through the Castle Howard estate and back or an epic loop that takes in the North York Moors with lunch at a quaint Yorkshire Coast cafe.
Our mountain bike rides are designed around your fitness and ability (so no fibbing!) and can be a mix of the best bits in Dalby with some 'wild' Moors riding or full on technical epics through awe inspiring scenery.
