The Dales Bike Centre has picked up another to add to its growing collection.
Last Friday owners Stuart and Brenda Price were presented the Energy Sustainability gong at the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority Best Building Design Awards.
Key features included within the build that impressed the judges were the ground source heating system, water recycling bike wash, heat exchange ventilation system and Bio disc mini treatment plant.
The centre is situated in Swaledale, in the north-eastern corner of the Dales, and was opens by Stuart and Brenda in January 2009 with 14-bed accommodation, a bike shop and a cafe.
It also boasts a secure bike store, a drying room, laundry and 24-hour cake access.
“It took us two-and-a-half years to get planning permission for the bike centre from the national park,” said Stuart.
“It’s great to get this award and the recognition for the efforts we went to designing and building Dales Bike Centre.
“Since we opened the support we’ve received from the mountain bike community has been ace and we’re looking forward to another great year next year.”
