Bike ideas for your get-away with us.

If you’re bringing your own bikes you’ll find plenty of space to store them inside (downstairs in the cellar if they’re muddy) and an outside tap in the garden if they need a wash. If you want to hire bikes for your weekend adventures then just contact the amazing folk at Blazing Saddles (

Hebden Bridge is set up for all kinds of biking.

You could follow a road route that was used in the Tour de Yorkshire (come and stay during the Tour de Yorkshire weekend for a bike filled weekend) or take the Cragg Vale Challenge – can you get to the top of the longest continuous hill in England (8km of continuous uphill!) – it starts just 1.5km from leaving your front door at MMH along Route 66.

Or take to the hills – there are plenty of challenging roads and paths that go uphill and down dale along the valley sides and up towards the moors. Local routes and maps available from cycle Calderdale (  or Blazing Saddles.

For an extreme downhill challenge try Havok Downhill Bike Park ( in Cornholme (20mins drive towards Burnley from MMH).

Bike sustrans route 66: Mayroyd Mill House is on Sustrans Route 66 ( , so you just hop on your bike right out of the front door and head off for a day of exploring on cycle routes that will take you through beautiful scenary, passing canal path pubs, and able to explore the industrial heritage of the northern peninnes. This is also a great route for kids to try. We often cycle down Route 66 to go swimming at Sowerby Bridge Swimming Pool – there is always a train option home again from Sowerby Bridge to Hebden Bridge (you can take bikes on trains in West Yorkshire subject to space being available on the train…no need to book)
