Promoting Cycling in the Yorkshire Dales

Located in the heart of beautiful Wensleydale, Stage 1 is a innovative family run cycling hub offering affordable hire, repairs and supported tours. Stage 1 Cycles is based in Hawes and aims to encourage access by bike to the National Park routes and beyond for everyone, everyday. Whether you are an elite cyclist or a new starter we have the services to support you.

In addition to regular off-road and road bikes we have trailers, tag along and junior bikes for hire, ensuring there is a way for everyone to participate. If you have the family to entertain then look out for our special holiday activities planned during School holidays in collaboration with Castle Bolton.

Stage 1 will support all your needs to get you started on your cycling adventure. We have spares in our shop and can provide an emergency or scheduled repair service. We can even build you a new bike if you give us a enough notice!

Stage 1 cycles offer a bespoke guided tour programme which will build a cycling experience around your individual requirements. Whether you would like a leisurely cycle to Semer Water with the kids for a picnic or 3 days off road in the hills and a crash pad, we can accommodate all your requirements and get you on the road.

We can also organise corporate events and specialist skills courses with CTC trail leader/National instructors instructors. Get in touch for more information.
