The largest bike hire centre in the Yorkshire Dales.
Explore stunning Swaledale and the Yorkshire Dales on top quality bikes.
Our fleet of over 40 top quality current model hire bikes is the largest in the Yorkshire Dales. Each hire bike comes clean and has been safety checked to ensure it's in perfect working order. Price includes bike helmet, route map, pump and small spares pack. Hire available for Full Day or a Half Day being either morning or afternoon, multi day hire also available.
We can suggest routes from the low level easy going Off-Road 'Swale Trail' to something aimed at the more experienced mountain biker as well as road rides suited to the novice or experience rider. We'll provide a detailed route map and plenty of advice to help you explore and make the most of your time cycling Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales.
Here at Dales Bike Centre we are the gateway to 'Swale Trail', the Yorkshire Dales only dedicated easy going off-road mountain bike trail. Swale Trail is a stunning picturesque ride up Swaledale shadowing the river Swale on easy going trails. Ideal route for the not-so-extreme of off road cyclists, MTB'ers and families with children that are confident riders. Being a linear route riders can take in as much of Swale Trail as they like. For some families with younger riders 3 or 4km out then back is plenty fun, for the stronger kids large and small the 12km to the pretty village of Gunnerside and the Kings Head pub or Ghyllfoot cafe for a little refreshment before heading back is perfect. For those feeling adventurous pressing on from Gunnerside to the village Keld is hard work but is well rewarded with great views.
