Dalby Bike Hire Coming Soon

Dalby Bike Hire Coming Soon, FAQ

Where can I hire bikes if there’s no bike shop?
Our new bike hire and shop will open in Spring 2018, this is so that we can make improvements to the Courtyard and the bike hire building over the Winter period.  Unfortunately there is no bike hire available during this period but don’t worry you can still purchase Dalby trail maps, bike wash tokens and bike essentials from the Visitor Centre.   We appreciate your patience whilst these works are underway and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.    We look forward to opening our new bike shop in Spring 2018.

What will the new bike hire and shop be like?
Dalby Forest has an outstanding reputation for family cycling and world class XC trails.  We are working to attract a new cycle shop that will offer our visitors a range of bicycles for hire, whether you want to enjoy a relaxing cycle ride on our easy green cycle trails or take on the challenging climbs and tricky decents of the Dalby red trail.  The shop will have a selection of bikes for sale and carry out servicing and maintenance to keep your trusty steed in good working order.  We are looking to have a range of family based events and to encourage visitors to head out and explore the forest on 2 wheels.  We look forward to opening our new bike shop in Spring 2018.  Watch this space for more information on our new bike hire and shop provider.

I’m interested in the tender, how can I apply?
The opportunity to run a bike shop in Dalby Forest will be tendered during Winter 2017.  Please register your interest with our Estates team in the Pickering office 0300 067 4300
