Things you need to know before you hire!
We are currently hiring bikes but this is subject to change at short notice. Sorry – we don’t have e-bikes at present but hope to have them available summer 2021.
We don’t ask for a deposit for a bike hired but we will need ID from you – either a photo driving licence, or a passport PLUS a current utility bill or similar to confirm your address, PLUS a current debit or credit card. We really don’t want to disappoint you so please remember to bring your ID along with you. We will hold your ID and card as collateral until you bring the bikes back to us.
We may do a pre-authorisation on our card reader when you come in to collect your bike, particularly if you want to take out an e-bike. This means we can hold a sum in readiness should you abscond with our bike or cause damage to it (beyond standard wear and tear). No money will come out of your account with a pre-authorisation unless we have to cover loss or damage. The pre-authorisation will be cancelled when the bike is returned safely and no financial details are retained by us.
“No shows” – we reserve the right to collect the sum equal to the cost of the bike hire from your card lodged on our booking site unless you have cancelled your booking in accordance with the terms and conditions (below).
Adult Basic Mountain Bike/Hybrid: 1 hour – £14; up to 2 hours – £19; up to 4 hours – £24; 4 hours+ £30

Mountain biking is a hazardous activity and you hire a bike entirely at your own risk. We will require hirers to sign a waiver form before taking out bikes.
Never attempt any feature unless you are 100% confident you know what you are doing.
Hirers must be over 16. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
All hirers must wear a cycle helmet. Hirers may bring their own helmet (which must be in suitable condition) or we can hire you one for a small charge. Bike locks and bags are also available to hire, just ask on check in. Water bottles can be purchased.
