Friday Night Ride

The Friday night ride is that perfect time to grab a weekend ride before the weekends even begun. We meet here at Dales Bike Centre and start riding at 19:00 on the sounding of Grinton Church bells. 2 hours ride UPHILL & DOWN'DALE with visit to our local pub afterwards for a swift beer and a bite to eat.

Lights are essential from September til May. We have a few USE Exposure demo front lights to hire for £5, rear lights are a must.

More details and join in the conversation on our Friday Night Facebook page.

Monthly Shop Mountain Bike Ride

On the first Sunday of the month - Come and join us for a regular monthly mountain bike ride round some of Swaledale's finest trails.
The route will take in a chunk of 'Up' and plenty of blasts 'Down' it'll be 'Sporting' but a lot of fun! 
Thing is.. if you've ridden Swaledale you'll know there'll be the usual lung busting uphill before the smiles all the way downhill, it's just the way it is here.

Every month we ride out, join us on the first Sunday for a sociable ride out.
Meet up here at Dales Bike Centre and be ready for a 10:30am fire-up of the pedals.
3 hours ride, hitting some trails then back for the obligatory coffee'n'cake refuel at 1:30'ish
Expect 25-30km with between 500-700metres of climbing.
