Our bikes – the range we have suits ages 8 and upwards as well as attachments to help you get out and about with younger kids too. Whilst some of the children’s ones are available only for day hire and delivered to you (see delivery and collection service), we also have many bikes already out and about that you can pick up and will suit many children and adults aged from around 12 and upwards (see partner locations to hire the bikes via the mobile app).
We are proud that the majority of our fleet are 21 speed Hybrid Dawes bikes, perfect for exploring the local countryside. For almost 100 years Dawes has been one of the finest bicycle brands in the UK. The Dawes factory made bikes for the armed services during the war and has since supported a whole host of British racing cyclists over the years both on and off-road – (see a bit about Dawes here).
The following Dawes bike sizes are in the fleet:
16 inch frames – suitable for people with an inside leg measurement of around 25″-28″ (indicative average height 4’8″-5’5″)
18 inch frames – suitable for people with an inside leg measurement of around 28″-30″ (indicative average heigh 5’5″-6′)
20 inch frames – suitable for people with an inside leg measurement of around 30+” (indicative average height 6’+ taller)
All of the Dawes bikes have adjustable saddle heights.
In addition to the the above, we also have BMX stunt, Carerra and Apollo 18 speed, 14 inch frame children’s bikes. We have a ‘Tag Long’ and baby seats too, which we can be attach to our bikes on special request (enquire for fees and availability if interested).

We have carefully chosen our bikes to suit getting around the countryside. They are both light and durable. The tyres are puncture resistant and also contain a sealant that automatically repairs small punctures if they occur.
