  • Mills n Moors Series ’30 for 30′
    Join us as we celebrate 30 years of the Blazing Saddles bike shop with two routes of 30km and 30 miles that take in some of the best trails above Hebden Bridge in the upper Calder Valley, West Yorkshire. Entry is for the whole event then just choose your route on the day.
    (a) Wizard of Whirlaw
    30km gravel / mtb route with 800 meters of climbing
    (b) Top of the Stairs
    31 mile gravel / mtb route with 920 meters of climbing

    Please note both routes go DOWN the Penny Steps!

    Giving something back to the Calder Valley
    The event will aid the work of Slow the Flow and Calder Valley Mountain Rescue. Entry £15.
    The rides on the ‘Mills n Moors Series’ are a personal challenge. They are not races, there is no ‘mass start’ and the route is NOT way marked. Both routes start form the lane at the back of the shop, head along the canal towpath and then its up to the tops.
    At the end of the ride they’ll be a party in the yard at the back at the shop to which everyone is invited!
    The routes use bridleways and tracks of gravel, peat and stone and whilst they are challenging, as we cross large areas of cross open moorland and there is no rescue vehicle, they are NOT techy enduro or downhill mtb style routes.
    Maps and a description of the routes together with the location of the starting line can be found on the Yorkshire Divide website:
    Start Time

    Meet us at the start line between 8.30am-10am for a cup of tea / coffee and pick up your embroidered cloth badge and head off. There is no ‘mass start’.

    The group social ride departs at 10.10am. If you aren’t 100% confident about following a gpx route file or just want to ride with a bunch of other folk on a bike then join us. There is no fixed speed we cycle at. We will be stopping and waiting for each other and we can take turns opening the many gates!

    Any one of the following bikes would get you around the route: Gravel bike / Cyclocross bike / Mountain bike / E-bike The terrain is not suitable for road bikes. Any question about the ride then please contact:

  • SALE – The Vektron is now on sale! Was £3500 now £2899

    Ride it, Fold it, Go Further

    The Vektron is a best-in-class electric bike that folds in 10 seconds to go on trains, in cars, and under desks. Shorten distances and flatten the hills on your commute, or put a couple of Vektrons in the trunk of your car on your next trip, so you can explore further.
    The Tern Vektron Q9 in detail

    Best in Class

    In test after test, the Vektron is called the best folding e-bike on the market. With an updated frame, upgraded Bosch motors, and a wide ecosystem of accessories to help you carry your stuff, the Vektron will easily turn a lot of your car trips into bike trips.

    Ready to Roll

    Once you fold your Vektron, it’s easy to roll it around. The new frame design also lets you keep the bike in vertical position when folded, so stopping and going is easier than ever.

    Takes You Further

    Take your Vektron on a train or bus to cover those extra-long commutes, or to complete the first and last leg of your commute faster. Ride to the station, hop on, hop off, and keep riding.

    One Size Fits Most

    The Vektron has a low-step frame design and resizes in seconds—no tools required—to fit riders between 147 and 195 cm (4’10” – 6’5”), so you can share the bike with anyone in your family.

    Child seat compatible

    School runs have never been more fun! The frame-integrated Atlas V Rack™ is designed to fit a Thule Yepp Maxi or a Dash® RM seat—no adapters needed.

    Built to Last

    Our philosophy is to keep our bikes on the road for as long as possible, not to create disposable products that are built to fail. We start with intentional design choices that make the bike serviceable and safe—and end up with a reliable vehicle you can use day in, day out. Then, we back it up with great local service and a 10-year warranty for peace of mind.
