Holiday Itinerary

Check in to your hotel which boasts magnificent grounds in the heart of the Yorkshire countryside. We will drop the bike off at the hotel for you or you can bring your own bike.

This is a self guided ride and we have the perfect routes for you to explore the stunning Yorkshire Dales. Spend some time off road cycling the bridleways and paths or hit the roads made famous by the Tour de Yorkshire. Don't forget to stop at Betty's Tea Room, one of the best reasons to visit Harrogate!

This is the perfect place to discover the joys of riding in Yorkshire


Arguably the spiritual home of UK cycling, Yorkshire has some of the best riding in the country. From stunning vistas across the Yorkshire Dales to roads well trodden by the Tour de Yorkshire, this is UK riding at its most enchanting..


The best time to cycle in the UK is between March and October. Spring and Autumn are a lovely time to ride when often the air is crisp and so long as you’re wearing the right equipment, exploring the great British countryside at this time can be a delight. Summer is of course an ideal time to go cycling and whilst July & August tend to be the warmest months, both May and September often offer great weather to ride. The cold winter months between November and February are best avoided although they can be cycled with the correct winter equipment.


Your stay will be at the magnificent Rudding Park Hotel on the outskirts of Harrogate. Offering a sensuous and breathtaking spa, this is the perfect base to explore the beauty of the Yorkshire countryside. We can also upgrade your room or offer single occupancy, subject to availability. Just ask our cycling experience team when you make your enquiry. 
Your stay will be bed and breakfast but we can upgrade to half or full board on request. Just ask our cycling experience team when you make your enquiry. 
The holiday is a self guided holiday allowing you to explore Harrogate and the Yorkshire Dales at your own pace. We know the area very well and have put together some recommended routes in GPX format which allows you to download these to most GPS enabled devices, and with certain software, to your smartphone. These will be sent to you once you have booked your holiday with Love Velo and each file will be titled with a short description of the ride and the distance. If you would like to see the profile of each route, we recommend that you download the files before your holiday and open them with a GPS viewer such as this
If you choose not to have a guide, you will want to know that your bike is in great condition and that you won’t have any mechanical problems during your ride. Our bikes are extremely well serviced and maintained but in the very unlikely event there is a mechanical issue with the bike (not including basic maintenance such as slipped chains or punctures), we will provide you with an emergency number for someone to come out and repair or replace your bike. 
We can offer a great hybrid bike to see the sights or you can upgrade to a hard tailed mountain bike or road bike. If you want to explore the tougher trails and bridleways, upgrade to a Cube, Merida or Scott bike with hard tail, disc brakes and front suspension. Our highest specification bike will be a full suspension mountain bike or aluminium road bike with carbon forks and Ultegra groupset 
If you want anything from gel saddles to the hire of an electric bike, just ask our cycling experience team when you make your enquiry.  
Your bike will come equipped with essential tools for you to repair a puncture, replace an inner tube or fix a slipped chain. 
Travel to Harrogate is not included but please ask our cycling experience team if you would like us to book any train or other travel.

Accordingly, it is a condition of making a booking through us that you have suitable insurance cover for the booking you have made and any activities which you expect to take part in.
