Just Bike Hire in Suffolk

Since 1991, we’ve been providing bike hire in Suffolk from our premises in Needham Market. Renting out good quality bicycles has been an integral part of our cycling holiday offering since this time and over recent years, we have added great electric bikes to our fleet.

Now, from our Suffolk base, you can just rent the bikes, if that is what you would prefer. 

About our Suffolk Bike Rental Fleet 

We offer good quality adult hybrid bicycles from Dawes and Claud Butler  and also have youth and child bikes from Squish available for hire in Suffolk.  All bikes are well-maintained by our expert team in our workshop, and 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 number of Pedal Assist Electric bikes (from Sparta and Whisper) available for bike hire in Suffolk.  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.
