The Wheatley Arms work closely with Ilkley based Yorkshire Velo Tours to provide the ideal starting point for cycling in the Yorkshire Dales.

The 2017 programme is out now with a vastly expanded range of options catering for both experienced cyclists to those wanting a more leisurely trip where the cafe stops and evening dining are as important as the cycling.

3 options now available typically comprising 3 days’ riding and 4 nights’ luxury accommodation. Two of the tours are based in Ilkley at the Wheatley Arms, an ideal base for routes in all directions. There is also a 2 base tour with overnight stays at the Wheatley Arms and Wensleydale.

Classic Yorkshire rides one Saturday a month. Ride in small groups each with a ride leader and have dedicated van support and mechanic on hand at all times. Weekend package also available for these events that also includes a steady ride on the Sunday morning.

The Wheatley Arms and Yorkshire Velo Tours now offer a corporate cycling day package as well as a ‘group cycling adventure’ for groups to book and tailor a ride and hospitality exactly to their specification.

The route guides draw on invaluable local knowledge, which is like gold dust for a visiting cyclist and can turn an average trip into a truly memorable adventure. Ride/map info, download to GPS device and key info for the ride, including where the main climbs are and most importantly recommendations for cafe stops using tried and tested local establishments.

Since the recent announcement on the World Championships in 2019, there is certainly no better time come and cycle in Yorkshire!
