‘The Travel Hack’ – Monica Stott

We are unable to accept any new bookings (Bike Hire, Repairs or Servicing) for the period of 12 - 29 August. Vern will be busy with a cycling tour. Outstanding bookings which have been confirmed will of course go ahead.

Cycling in Yorkshire

I was then back in the car and drove from Scarborough to Brimham Rocks in North Yorkshire where I was going to be cycling part of the Tour de Yorkshire route!

I arrived a little early so had a walk around the incredible balancing rock formations. The rocks are nearly 30 feet high and they look like a giant perfectly placed them all in these balancing structures.

My guide for the ride was Vern Overton from Vern Overton Cycling, a local guide who offers bike hire, guiding and also coaching. It’s been a long time since I’ve ridden a road bike but Vern’s kind encouragement had me feeling confident again and I loved our ride through the winding country lanes.

I was a bit unlucky with the weather here as it was grey and cloudy and I couldn’t see the Yorkshire landscape in all its glory so it’s definitely a place I need to go back to.
