It’s Bike Week 2019!

Cycling holidays in Yorkshire

This week is Bike Week 2019 – a national day designed to introduce more of us to the joys of getting about on two wheels! This is Bike Week’s 95 year of showing people that not only is there a bike for everyone, but everyone can cycle too. Whether you’d like to cycle to school or the shops, or try downhill mountain biking, cycling is a cheap, healthy way to travel whilst having fun at the same time.

Our cycle-friendly Yorkshire hotel

As regular readers of our blog will already know, here at Rendezvous we’re already big fans of cycling. We’re lucky enough to have had the Grand Depart of the 2014 Tour de France pass very close by, whilst the Tour de Yorkshire has travelled through Skipton several times. Whilst this sort of world-class cycling is beyond the reach of most of us, it has given us a real love of bikes and biking!

Luckily Skipton is located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park which just happens to be one of the UK’s premier cycling areas. Boasting everything from relaxing family-friendly rides through beautiful countryside, through to challenging mountain biking and impressive hill climbs, the Yorkshire Dales has something for cyclists of all abilities.

We offer a very warm welcome to cyclists and go the extra mile to provide facilities designed to make it as easy as possible to holiday in the Yorkshire Dales with your bike. From safe bike storage and drying rooms, through to packed lunches, cycling trips, tours, bike here and help with route planning, it’s our aim to help you make the most of a cycling break in Yorkshire.

Sunday lunch in Skipton

The best Sunday lunch in Skipton?

Enjoy a traditional Sunday lunch at the Rendezvous Hotel in Skipton

There are few things better in life than sitting down to enjoy a delicious home-cooked Sunday lunch. Here at the Rendezvous we take great pride in offering what we think is the best Sunday lunch in Skipton; lovingly prepared by our talented chef using high-quality fresh ingredients, many of which are sourced locally.

Our Sunday lunch menu includes all the traditional favourites we know you love including 28 day matured rib eye of beef or roast leg of lamb, alongside roast duck, wild mushroom gnocchi or even tandoori salmon! In addition, as all Sunday lunch aficionados will know, the best way to ensure roast meet is as tender and succulent as possible, our roast beef and lamb are carved at the table – delicious! Starters include soup of the day, prawn cocktail or chicken liver parfait, whilst our pudding selection is second to none – from apple crumble and custard, through to lemon tart or traditional Yorkshire Parkin with vanilla ice cream and toffee sauce.

Enjoying Sunday lunch in a beautiful setting really is the icing on the cake and we serve ours in the gorgeous surroundings of our Baby Swan conservatory restaurant. Looking out across the Leeds Liverpool Canal with panoramic views to the green hills of the Yorkshire Dales, our Baby Swan restaurant is the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy Skipton’s best Sunday lunch!
