Ride Free offers great value bicycle hire, delivered where you want it, catering for the whole family. Based just north of York, the pleasantly rolling countryside of the Howardian Hills and the southern fringes of the North York Moors provide a fantastic playground of quiet country lanes and leisurely tracks to cycle on, with superb visitor attractions easily reached and an abundance of village pubs and cafés making the ideal refreshment points along the way.
Dual track mountain bikes, perfectly suited to the mix of road and track riding in the area, can be provided in a range of sizes as well as child seats, trailers, tag-a-longs and junior bikes to cater for all. They can be hired for day trips or for multiple days at significantly reduced rates, tailored to your requirements. See Cycle Hire for more detail and our current price list.
Your bikes will be delivered to and collected from your accommodation or other agreed meeting point to suit you, and come with helmets, locks, repair kit and local area map in a backpack. To help plan your ride, please see our guide to Local Information & Routes.
All bikes are cleaned and maintained by a professionally qualified cycle mechanic and support is on call in the event of any unforeseen mishaps (as far as practicable). If your own bikes are in need of repair, then a mobile bike mechanic service is also offered to allow you to get on with your visit without hassle.
Whether you live in the area or are just visiting, a Cytech qualified, mobile bike mechanic is available to come to you and provide a basic service, assessment and safety check of your bike (which is recommended every 6 months or so). Simple repairs can be undertaken on the spot, subject to having the correct spare parts.
Following on from the above, if any further repair work or in-depth servicing is recommended and agreed, your bike will be recovered to our workshop, any replacement parts ordered if required, then once the work is complete, returned at your convenience. See Servicing & Repair for more detail and our current price list.
