We have a range of bikes to suit ages 6 and upwards. Whilst some of the children’s bikes are available only for day hire and delivered to you, 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. Four of our venues now have children’s bikes out permanently that suit children of around 9 to 11.

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.

The following Dawes bike sizes are in the fleet:

16 inch frames – suitable for people with an inside leg measurement of around 28″ (indicative average height 5’3″-5’7″)

18 inch frames – suitable for people with an inside leg measurement of around 30″ (indicative average heigh 5’7″-5’11”)

20 inch frames – suitable for people with an inside leg measurement of around 32″ (indicative average height 5’11”-6’2″)

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 a baby seat too, both of which we can be attach to our bikes on special request (enquire for fees and availability if interested).

Our goal is simple. Bike hire made easy 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. 

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.
