Bike hire made easy


Really great service, handy if you don’t own your own bike but want to go for a bike ride with others that do. Super easy app on my phone meant that picking up the bike was a doddle. The bike itself was perfect so we had a really comfy ride down to Hartfield. The basket on the front was handy too! Such a great idea, will definitely be trying another pick up point over the summer to explore other places in Sussex. – Facebook 5 star review on 11th July

Thank you awards people!

We are so proud to have been shortlisted as 2018 finalists by the Rural Business awards for 'best start-up company' in the South East! ...and in the Ethical Business category for the Love Where We Live Awards by Tunbridge Wells Borough Council

What a fantastic day we’ve just spent cycling around the cycle paths from Penshurst Place to Tonbridge. Great family day out (no screens), fantastic bikes, so effortless. Highly recommend it, and brilliant exercise as well not to mention lovely countryside with gorgeous views, lambs frolicking and perfectly positioned cafe half way through. Friday 13th April

Who we are

bike hire made easy

Bike hire made easy in the countryside

Our goal is simple. We want to make bike hire more accessible to more people in the countryside. Whether visiting the well known spots or discovering the hidden gems, great local pubs, village shops or innovative businesses, our countryside is here to celebrate and explore. Our bicycles are here to help enable you to do so. 

How to hire our bikes

Please note that we have now brought in bikes from some of our partner venues for the Winter. You can still hire bikes from these venues but we ask that you just get in contact in advance of your visit to arrange things (ideally give us at least 24 hours notice). Alternatively bikes are still out at the following venues where you can just turn up and go: Penshurst PlaceThe Spa Valley Railway in Groombridge, The Anchor Inn in Hartfield and Tablehurst Farm in Forest Row.   

Use the Mobile app

Download the ‘Linka Go‘ app and use it to open our internet enabled bike locks and hire our bikes positioned at many pubs and businesses around the Kent and East Sussex countryside. A list of places our bikes are located is be shown on the bike locations page on the website as well as searchable on the interactive map contained on the app.
