Found Vern online and organised a bike hire from overseas. It was easily organised and once on holiday collected the bike with no issues. The bike was low spec but in good condition and well maintained. Vern was helpful and knowledgeable and I strongly recommend his services.

Perfect experience renting a road bike from Vern, I can give my best recommendations for him

Perfect experience renting road bike from Vern

We rented two e-bikes from Vern for a circular route of about 45 miles. It was a glorious ride! The bikes were perfect for the up and down of this countryside. Vern got us all geared up and was available by phone for when we returned. A perfect day on excellent bikes!!

Vern rented us 25 bikes and was unbelievable throughout! He sorted a route, adapted plans, found an electric bike for one person. He also coordinated to pick some people up early who found the cycle challenging. Thank you so much, Vern. You and Dave were amazing. We look forward to renting from you again!

My girlfriend and I hired two hardtail mountain bikes from Vern, to explore Nidderdale. Vern was fantastic - flexible with pick up and drop off, provided us with a map and was really friendly. We rode out from the pick up point and past Gouthwaite reservoir and Scar House Reservoir. The bikes dealt with terrain effortlessly and we had a lovely day out, despite rain and wind. I would recommend getting the bikes dropped at a starting point, so as to minimize the time spent on roads. Cheers, Dave

Such great service. We couldn't find a local hire shop with what we needed, but Vern delivered two perfect MTBs to us in Hellifield. He was very flexible and went out of his way to make sure we had what we needed. Very reasonable charge and we had a fantastic week, though my legs are properly tired now! Highly recommended.

We rented 4 bikes from Vern for a couple of days. The bikes and delivery/collection service were excellent. Vern was also really flexible with timings and was very willing to share his local knowledge to advise us of appropriate MTB routes. Highly recommended.

My Explorer Group hired 9 Mountain bikes to take out for the day, It was a really affordable hire. We were given brand new Mountain Bikes that the Explorers loved, Vern was very knowledgeable and suggested routes based on our riders experience. Great place of hire, would use again and recommend to anyone visiting harrogate and the local area.

Massive thanks to Vern for servicing my bike. Excellent customer service and the bike feels like new. Would highly recommend! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A really great Bike Service done by Vern Overton this week, just been out on the bike, it is working like a dream and feels like new again. Great service, good value, Vern is a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend.

Quick, honest and high quality repair!

My bike needed a service as it'd been some time since it had one, and the gears had started to seize up somewhat. I took it to Vern after seeing his reviews on here. After he'd finished, I was delighted that the bike ran as good as new. Very flexible on drop off and pick up times. Superb service and result - would highly recommend.

We used Vern’s bike hire in October 2020 (sorry for such a belated review, Vern!) and the service was fantastic. Flexible pickup/drop-off times, great price and invaluable route advice. He even came into Harrogate to help us work the gears after we’d picked up the bikes and headed off!

This review is way overdue - but i want to say that Vern went out of his way (literally) to deliver the bike to me at Harogate Station and pick i up after my week of cycling. The bikes were in top condition, reasonably priced, and Vern helped us out with route planning too. Highly recommend.

Bike hire in North Yorkshire

You never know who might call next! Just hired-out 30 of our bike’s to Wolverhampton Wanderers FC who were carrying out Pre-Season Training at Aldwark Manor Hotel and Spa in North Yorkshire. Cycling is one of their chosen activities when recovering from a hard game. See https://www.voc.bike for full details of hiring our bike’s.

Thanks to Vern, I had a fantastic cycling holiday exploring the beautiful Yorkshire countryside for over a week without the effort, stress and carbon emissions of bringing my own bike to the UK. He set me up with a lovely road bike and couldn't have been more helpful. Communications were always prompt and friendly. There is so much cycling to be enjoyed in this area whether you stay local or venture far out into the Dales. Thoroughly recommended.

We cycled the Way of the Roses with our adult children and some friends. We had been struggling to put together bike rental, bike transport and baggage forwarding, but after contacting Vern, found he could do it all and at a better price than separate providers. He was always prompt in his responses when we were planning and had lots of very useful suggestions. His equipment, which included carbon fiber Trek road bikes, helmets, locks and repair kits was all first rate. He met us as planned the first morning, right on time, and dropped our bags before our arrival at our hotels along the way. He adjusted the bikes to fit us, offered our choice of pedal type and even did a tune up along the way. It was clear that he really cared about our experience and about the service he offers and his knowledge of cycling comes from personal experience. I would very highly recommend Vern for anyone considering a trip like ours across the UK.
