Chevin Cycles is an award-winning small local chain of shops that originated in neighbouring Otley but has a strong presence in Skipton thanks to this store, jam-packed with bikes of all shapes and sizes.
They also stock a wide range of gear: helmets, clothing and accessories and have a workshop for any visitors whose bike needs a tune up (this would have to be booked in advance as it does get busy).
Perhaps, more importantly, for those looking to cycle and take it easy or manage to keep up with fitter friends and family, they offer electric cycle hire. Simply jump on and, when your legs are too tired, let the electric motor take over. It’s a great way to beat some of the challenging hills around Skipton.
