Very good service and e-bikes. Vern Overton Cycling is highly recommended.

Can’t fault Vern and his service. Myself and 5 friends were visiting Harrogate for the weekend. I contacted Vern about hiring bike. He got back to me really quickly answering all of my queries. He delivered our bikes to us at the accommodation.. super condition bikes.. they looked new. All had safety helmet and came with puncture repair kits. We were supplied with a possible route, bike locks and a pump. After a lovely day cycling in the rare sunshine we called Vern Knaresborough for a pick up in approx 40mins and we couldn’t have timed it better. Thank you very much 😊 We all would definitely recommend

Super helpful, and really friendly. Hired two MTBs which were sized to fit and affordable. Also offered very reasonable bike repairs. Would recommend for bike hire!

Having injured my back I needed my Giant Road bike converting to a flat bar. Vern did an amazing job and wherever possible used stock (2nd hand) parts to keep the cost down. 5 star service from a 5 star fella!

Fantastic bikes, really well prepared and running smoothly & Vern is a great person to talk to!

Vern was super helpful in renting us an electric mountain bike for the day and sorting our a route that fitted our requirements. Highly recommended.

Vern was very helpful and accommodating. We rented 12 excellent bikes. Vern delivered, fitted bikes to riders and collected. Communication, service and bikes were all great

Hired a bike just for the day off Vern liasoning was very well organized the type of bike I would need for myself and the time I was picking it up. Overall a great experience and would definitely recommend for the price and if your a keen cyclists! Some great quality bikes available aswell 👍

Vern had everything ready and he even recommended us two cycling routes to enjoy Yorkshire. The bikes were in perfect conditions to enjoy a 5h cycle.We will repeat again next year!

My wife and I rented two bikes for a week and it couldn’t have been any better. The bikes where in excellent condition, almost new, well adjusted and ready to go. We had no mechanical issues during any of our rides (which added to more than 600Km). Vern was very kind since the very beginning in every way possible: he agreed to meet at the time we needed to collect the bikes (and we were late :-( ), he lended us some stuff we hadn’t brought from Mexico, and even gave us two new water bottles as a gift! He is a very experienced rider himself and gave us a lot of advice regarding riding on and off the roads in UK and even suggested some areas to visit in the park. We are very happy with the service and highly recommend this very professional company. Also, we highly recommend visiting the Yorkshire Dales on bike, just make sure you plan ahead your rides and chose a geographically adequate place as your base (we decided on Ilkley which is a very charming town and close to many cycle circuits and hiking routes).

Amazing Time.

Vern was very friendly and accomodating. The bike I hired was brilliant and in bar and new condition. Great service, great bike and great location to get around on 2 wheels. MUST see Vern for a brilliant bike hire adventure.

Best rental road bike near Harrogate !

I rent a bike for the day.
The bike was super bike and as good as new. A pump and repair kit is supplied with the bike.
Vern was very nice and helpful.

Bikes were very good and service was exceptional. Thank you Vern!

Went out his way to fix my bike. Such a nice and friendly guy with great knowledge on bikes. Can't thank you enough for the help!

Great job!

Great, friendly service. Fixed my bike on the same day as it was booked in for. Overall 10/10, will be using again and recommending to friends & family.

Amazing Experience with Vern Overton Cycling

We have just had the most wonderful family day, riding the Nidderdale Greenway Cycle track! All thanks to Vern from Vern Overton Cycling! From the moment we contacted Vern, he supplied us with all the information and recommendations for booking 4 mountain bikes for our family day out in Harrogate, Ripley and Knaresborough! Super helpful in making recommendations and the bikes were in superb condition, supplied with maps, spare inner tubes, locks - everything you would need for a day out riding! Would highly recommend Vern's company if you are wanting to hire bikes in Harrogate & District!

Excellent bikes and service

Excellent bikes for a lovely ride on the Nidderdale Greenway. Extras like helmets, locks, pump, spare tire provided. Thank you VOC!

I had a tremendous day’s riding (90km) around Harrogate on a bike from Vern. Road bike was perfect and Vern helped out with a lift to the Wellington Inn for a post-ride beer.

Fantastic, friendly all round service

I contacted Vern to do a full service on two of my bikes, Both specialized, an ageing Rockhopper mountain bike and a sirrus hybrid used for commuting, both were both showing a bit of age mechanically! Vern was very friendly and professional when arranging the service and for a small fee agreed to pick up the bikes, There was no hurry I pointed out as I used another bike in the meantime but both were done after a few days, Vern did a written report of any issues found and any work carried out as well as brake pad wear which was really useful. Vern dropped the bikes off and I took them both for a little test ride. Well it was like riding brand new bikes (war scars still there) they were so clean and everything felt just right, nice and tight, gear change smooth. Cant thank Vern enough and will do my best to recommend him to friends and family.

wonderful experience with Vern, great bikes, super location to ride to Ripley Castle and then off road largely to Knaresborough on bike paths. better location to ride from than Harrogate!

Our family of five have just hired bikes from Vern and had a great day out today, cycling around Ripley, Harrogate and the countryside. Vern was really friendly, helpful and highly knowledgeable about bikes and the area. The bikes looked new, were of high quantity and really well maintained. Thank you very much, we can highly recommend to anyone!

Contacted Vern a few days before a planned trip to see friends in Otley hoping to get a ride in whilst visiting. He responded really quickly, was easy to communicate with and provided a great bike and all required kit for a days riding. Highly recommended.

Awesome service! I rented a gravel bike for the day, good quality bike and Vern couldn’t have been more accommodating. Excellent location to start a tour from, many quiet country roads to enjoy.

I needed an e-bike for a long week-end and Vern very efficiently replied to my messages and then delivered a good ebike in perfect condition to the hotel, even before I arrived, and also picked it up after. Very good service. Of course I had to pay for the delivery, but that's normal.

Professional bike workshop

Very kind and professional, me and my friends had a puncture and shifting problems on our way riding c to c, fixed for us easily for half an hour, definitely a place to recommend

Excellent cycle hire

Vern was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The mountain bikes we hired were high quality and really well maintained. We look forward to hiring again when next in the area.

E-bike hire at its best!

Vern was friendly and helpful and very communicative, we hired 2 electric mountain bikes and they were superb and very well setup! He recommended a couple of different routes and the one we chose was great, we chose to cut it a bit shorter as it was such a hot day but still had a really nice ride! Highly recommended and a fantastic add on to our holiday in the Dales! Tim & Carole

Exceptional Customer Service!

Can't say enough the positive experience dealing with Vern. I contacted numerous bike rental agencies in the area looking for a small 47cm carbon road bike to no avail. Vern didn't have one either but he actually purchased a 47cm frame and built it for me. Unbelievable, what service! ! He also provided us some routes and was very responsive when we had an issue. The riding is amazing and challenging in the Dales with lots of punchy 18-25% climbs. Highly, highly recommend Vern Overton Cycling!

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.

We contacted Vern Saturday to rent bikes Sunday. He was very responsive and helpful, even brought the bikes to the train station for us. Three of us used road bikes and one used an e-bike, he helped size us and provided locks and helmets. Knowing we wanted to ride from Harrogate to Fountains Abbey, he mapped out a good route and showed us where to start. We could not have asked for better bikes or better service, it made our day so perfect. Highly recommend exploring this gorgeous area on 2 wheels and having VOC set you up and equip you. Many thanks from the four Yanks you helped Vern!

Perfect bike hire.

Friendly service from the word go. I explained the type of cycling we planned and our heights and 2 appropriate (hybrid) bikes were selected for us dropped off at our hotel. All perfect.

Weekend bike hire - all good.

We hired 2 x bikes for a weekend of cycling around Harrogate. The bikes were delivered to/collected from our hotel. Friendly service, good, well-maintained bikes. Perfect.

Yorkshire Dales MTB

Great service from Vern! He was very accommodating with our last minute reservation and he also arranged for the bikes to be dropped off and picked up at Loft House for us (as we didn’t have bike racks). The bikes were perfect for the Dales terrain (we did the Nidderdale classic route)!

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

Perfect experience renting road bike from Vern

I rented a road bike from Vern during a stay in Harrogate in April 2022.
I can only give Vern my very best recommendations, he was friendly and forthcoming in the booking process and we found a really good bike for me to hire, and I enjoyed cycling on for the 4 days I had it.
Prices are good and he even delivered and collected the bike from me.

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

Birthday cycle

Me and my partner hired 2 electric bikes to go out and explore the area for my birthday and pedal over to Brimham Rocks. Vern was very friendly and there was no hassle, we signed the forms, got shown how to use the bikes and off we went.
Will definitely be using VOC again the next time we’re here
Thank you!

We booked a cycling break in Harrogate. Vern provided the bikes which were excellent. He delivered the bikes to our hotel and collected them at the end. All arrangements made went like clockwork. A very good experience. Would highly recommend.

Great day mountain biking

We hired 4 mountain bikes - all in great condition, which were delivered to our door in the morning and picked up in the evening. Vern was friendly and knowledgable. I’d highly recommend it to anyone hiring bikes for the day

Ebike riding in Nidderdale

Hired an ebike for two days. I had never ridden one before and Vern gave a great explanation of how to get the best use from it. I was able to overtake my husband on his road bike on several climbs which was very satisfying! We did an average of 25 miles each day and I only used half the battery on each day. We could have covered 40 miles easily each day. It is hilly in Nidderdale and an ebike transforms the experience of riding for a non-regular cyclist. On the first day we cycled to Ripley on back roads and picked up the Nidderdale Greenway which took us to Harrogate, mostly off-road. The next day we did a brilliant run: Pateley Bridge, Lofthouse to Scar House reservoir and back as recommended by Vern. We gained 1000 feet in height but I hardly noticed it! Back was all downhill. Lovely quiet road. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience: worth every penny!

Extremely friendly and helpful service, great assistance at short notice and excellent bike, can't go wrong! (Mountain bike hire)

Vern to the rescue!!

I’m in Harrogate for the World Championships Cycling. My plan was to ride the Yorkshire Dales myself, as well as the Harrogate Circuit. When my frontwheel broke during a ride a few days earlier, I thought that was it.

I began looking to hire a roadbike in Harrogate and ended up at Verns site. He answered very quickly that he was all out of roadbikes but he was enthusiastic to lend me one of his spare front wheels! After some quick and clear communication we met in the center of Harrogate, where he just gave me his wheel. He didn’t want any money or something in return. He trusted me, a complete stranger, to return his wheel two days later.

Thanks to Vern I did my ride today: 126km including 2x the Harrogate Circuit.

There are so many quiet lanes and roads, and you have a choice of terrain from flat to Tour-level climbs. Lots of other cyclists about and plenty of places to stop if you wish.

We were supplied with a possible route, bike locks and a pump. After a lovely day cycling in the rare sunshine we called Vern Knaresborough for a pick up in approx 40mins and we couldn’t have timed it better. Thank you very much 😊 We all would definitely recommend

Great day mountain biking

We hired 4 mountain bikes - all in great condition, which were delivered to our door in the morning and picked up in the evening. Vern was friendly and knowledgable. I’d highly recommend it to anyone hiring bikes for the day

First class service

Booked to ride a sportive in Thirsk, N. York’s but was without a bike after an accident & left with little prospect of hiring a road bike to be able to take part. Then we found Vern on a web search. Spoke to him briefly over the phone and then completed everything by e mail and txt. Nothing was too much trouble for Vern who delivered the bike to me, fitted my pedals and all was good to go. Completed my sportive the following day and the bike was great to ride. I phoned Vern to see if I could change the day of return for the bike which was no trouble at all and I received a refund which was unexpected. Vern contacted me after dropping off the bike to say I had left a piece of personal equipment on the bike and would post to me which I received the following day. Overall very impressive service from Vern who was a pleasure to talk to who provides an excellent service. If you are in the Yorkshire area and fancy hiring bikes look no further than Vern Overton Cycling.
