Your once a week dose of retail therapy from Singletrack’s Premier Dealers, stockists and advertisers, Tuesday Treats gives you a quality serving of independent bike retailing and a chance to win big in this week’s prize draw.
This week, we introduce: CrispWhiteSheets.com
We’ve plucked one of our Premier Partners, CrispWhiteSheets.com from its comfort zone and spun it a few one-liners.
The company does all the hard work researching the best places for you to stay while you’re away riding. No more disappointing B&Bs or lacklustre hotels – everything Crisp White Sheets recommends is guaranteed to be top banana!
Director Zoe Oakley tells us more about five-star living at Crisp White Sheets…
I wanted to provide a genuine, comprehensive guide for like minded people featuring the best luxury hotels in the UK. From lavish boutique hotels in London, to romantic breaks at luxury lodges with hot tubs, there is something to suit all guests with a discerning taste.
We are always on the look out for new hotels that are quirky or unique. Whether you want to book restaurants with rooms, spa breaks or even dog (and mountain biker!) friendly hotels, you have come to the best place.
We want to make selecting your destination and hotel as straightforward as possible, so we have included all the information you will need regarding hotel facilities and rooms, local events, regional guides and the best places to eat and drink during your stay.
Which is the hottest hotel for mountain bikers for 2014?
The hottest new hotel catering for mountain bikers and of course their better halves is The Brimstone at Great Langdale. These guys opened in 2013 and have some of the best rooms in the country. They have a choice of places to dine depending on your mood and taste, from relaxed pub to fine dining. Grizdale Forest is accessible from their front door and they have secure bike storage and a heated boot room. After a days riding, you can head to the spa for a massage, or back to the room and find double/twin baths, complimentary canapés, wine and beers.
Where else would you suggest is a must for Singletrack readers?
Carbis Bay Hotel in Cornwall, which is very close to The Bike Barn and a great place to start off on the coast to coast trail.
Do any of the Crisp White Sheets team own a mountain bike?
Two of us have a mountain bike, sadly with a combination of flat tyres and hard seats you can imagine how many miles we have done this year so far. I am a firm believer that those gel seats must be a better option for soft females! We have to contend with dreaming of riding somewhere with fantastic views, ideally a ski lift to take us to the top so that we can freewheel down.
What do Singletrack Premier Subscribers get from you guys?
