Since 1991, we’ve been providing bike hire from our premises in Suffolk. Renting out good quality bicycles has been an integral part of our cycling holiday offering since this time.
Now, from our base in Needham Market in Suffolk, you can just rent the bikes if that is what you would prefer. Our fleet is made up of good quality, well maintained, adult hybrid bicycles from Dawes and Claud Butler (youth and child bikes from Squish are also available). All bikes are mechanically checked and adjusted before each and every hire. (This is why the price difference between 1 and 2 day hire periods is not significant.)
We also have a small number of Pedal Assist Electric bikes (from Sparta and Whisper) available for hire. Please note that these can only be reserved a maximum 7 days in advance for July and August hires as we hold these primarily for customers taking our fully packaged Cycle Breaks cycling holidays.
