Stage 2 - Expansion



Here at Dales Bike Centre,  'THE' hub of great mountain biking and road cycling in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, we've exciting times ahead!!

May 2018 we were granted full planning permission by unanimous decision of the Yorkshire Dales National Park Planning committee for an ambitious expansion.

The £1million pound project will:

  • Extend and improve our café from 23 seats to 70
  • Add an additional eight en-suite twin, double & family  bed & breakfast guest rooms.
  • New larger secure guest bike storage
  • New sauna room
  • Larger more effecient drying room & laundry facility
  • Extend bike hire storage and provision
  • Re-site and extend car parking

A single storey cafe building designed to extend indoor seating capacity to 70 covers will incorporate a grass roof, glass front elevation and glass link to the current cafe building.

A second building primarily expands the accommodation with an extra five double/twin en-suite rooms and 3 family (or triple) ensuite rooms. Room layouts have been thoughtfully designed specifically with cyclists in mind.

A third building will house the guests’ secure bike store and sauna along with toilets and showers for day visitors exploring Swaledale by bike.

We are keen for works to start November 2018 with a completion date of August 2019.

Crowd/Friend Funding:

As part of this ambitious expansion we are looking to raise £150,000 in a Crowd/Friend Funding scheme with the remaining £850,000 to be raise by us.  If we can attract 1500 friends to pre-book one of the new  twin/double en-suite rooms for one night at £100 we'll make it.  The room can be taken up anytime within 3 years of opening, for your commitment and help we'll be throwing in a few additional little treats.  We are currently working on the finer detail of this Pre-book Room scheme along with many other Crowd/friend Funding options.
