Bike Happy. Cycling around York and the Yorkshire Wolds

Enjoy cycling along quiet roads of the Yorkshire Wolds

Cycling is growing in popularity and we’ve seen a rise in the number of visitors who bring their bikes with them on holiday. They’re here to enjoy the experience of quiet country roads across the Yorkshire Wolds, dedicated cycle routes and less traffic in cities like York, which positively encourages two wheels rather than four.

With this in mind, we realised we needed a bespoke cycle store to reflect our luxury cottage accommodation at High Barn.  We commissioned a local firm in Hull to build us a bike pod, which arrived and was installed, adjacent to the car parking area, earlier this year. The result is splendid! When most people see it for the first time they imagine it is a camping pod, it looks so good. So in our case, the humble bike shed has been re-created  as the luxury bike store, complete with charging for electric bikes, covered outdoor seating for rest and recovery and plenty of indoor space for up 6 bikes.

Nearby, is one of our EV charging points for cars……but that’s another story.
