England Bike Tours and UK Cycling Holidays from SCOOT

Yorkshire, UK. The best place for a cycling holiday and Scoot can find the perfect combination for you

 

Great bikes

We make sure that your bike and equipment are ideal for your cycling holiday.  Our routes are mainly along country lanes and good cycle paths beside rivers and canals There are some off-road sections on some routes so we have chosen versatile hybrid bikes for guests to use as they cycle around Yorkshire.

Our current fleet for holidays consists of ladies and gents Ridgeback Velocity bikes.  They are reasonably light in weight but sturdy enough for the rougher off-road paths.  They come with mud guards and a pannier rack.

We ask you for your height beforehand so that we meet you on arrival with appropriate bikes.  Our ladies bikes come in small (17" frame) or medium (19") and our gents bikes now come in 3 different sizes - medium (19"), large (21") ans extra large (23") for your comfort.

Tool kit

Our bikes are serviced before every holiday but it's impossible to know if you will get a puncture during your trip.  Most customers arrive back after several days with no trouble at all but we provide you with a pump, spare inner tube and tool kit just in case!  We also include easy to follow instructions on how to use the kit.

Don't forget - your holiday comes with our support and you can contact us if you need to.

SCOOT Cycling Code

At SCOOT CYCLING HOLIDAYS we believe that everyone should make the most of Yorkshire's fabulous outdoors as often as possible, whether it’s cycling, riding, walking or running. There are many occasions when we will share space with others. This guide will help us ensure that we all explore safely and courteously.

 

ALL ROUTES

 

  • Please cycle with consideration for other users at all times, whether they are pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders or drivers. Give way to pedestrians and always acknowledge those who give way to you.
  • Cycle only within your capabilities and match your speed to the surface and your skills
  • Let somebody know your route in advance and when you expect to be back
  • Try to get to the start and finish of your cycle ride by public transport

 

SHARED PATHWAYS

Many traffic free routes are used.  Some may be part of the National Cycle Network or possibly a disused railway line. Remember that they are suitable not only for cyclists, but walkers, horse riders and wheelchair users – please show respect for others and follow a few simple guidelines.  That way everyone gets the benefit.

 

  • Keep to your side of any dividing line
  • Do not cycle at high speed, you must be prepared to slow down or even stop suddenly
  • Be cautious when you approach junctions and bends
  • Be aware that many people are hard of hearing or visually impaired, they may not know you are there
  • Use your bell to alert people that you are there
  • Always give way to wheelchair users and horse riders

 

COUNTRYSIDE CYCLING

  • Follow the Country Code
  • Take your litter home
  • Respect farming, forestry and other land management activities
  • Keep erosion at bay by limiting the impact of off road cycling
  • In remote areas carry some food, water, repair kit, waterproofs, map and mobile phone

 

ROAD CYCLING

Our planned routes use minor roads through towns

 

  • Follow the highway code
  • Make sure you are visible – especially at junctions where most accidents happen
  • Keep lights on in poor visibility or darkness
  • Wear a helmet and colourful clothing
  • Make sure your bike is roadworthy
  • Do not cycle on pavements – unless specifically designated and keep to your side of a shared path
  • Alert pedestrians with your bell

 

THE BICYCLE DOES NOT CAUSE POLLUTION OR CONTRIBUTE TO CLIMATE CHANGE.

BE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY.

CHOOSE TO CYCLE. CHOOSE TO SCOOT.
