Lovely feedback

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

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
