Richmondshire has some of the finest cycling in Britain - fine enough for a recent Tour de France. Hundreds of cyclists pass through Richmond daily: packs of whippet-like club riders; muddy mountain-bikers; sweaty families on brand new e-bikes - we get all sorts. That is why, slowly and accidentally, Richmond Information Centre has become one of the best sources of info on cycling in the area.
We've got cycle maps and guides to most of the North of England; details of Sustrans routes, Hadrian's Cycleway, the Reivers' Route and the C2C; mountain-bike guides to the Lakes, Howgill Fells and Yorkshire Dales. For the real tigers we've got Cycling Climbs of Yorkshire - including the Côte de Buttertubs, of course - and there's a lovely new Swaledale by Bike map. Our volunteers may even suggest cafes and pubs where you can refuel and re-hydrate; try the wonderful Dales Bike Centre Café in Fremington, which is home to some really serious cake.
Don't whizz through Richmond! Park up in the Market Place (where you can pretend you're riding the Paris–Roubaix cobbles) and visit our booth in the Market Hall, to find some new two-wheeled adventure.
PS: we don't fix punctures.
