How to order bikes


Please do give us at least 2 or more working days notice to try and plan things for you. The more advance warning you give us, the more likely it is we will be able to support your request especially during the busy summer months!

Step 1:

Fill in the request form on the website or email us ( with the following details:

  • Your name and a contact telephone number
  • Where you would like to have the bikes delivered and picked up from
  • How long you would like to rent the bikes for
  • If you need bike helmets
  • The sizes of bikes that you want to hire – please download the pdf guide if needed for more information – Frame size guide 19

Step 2:

Once we have all the details above we will email you a proforma quote along with our standard terms and conditions.

Step 3:

If you wish to progress with the reservation, then we would require you to confirm in email that you are okay with the details in the quote and that you have agreed to our standard terms. We also then need to take details of a valid credit card to take payment in advance of delivery.

Step 4:

Once we have taken payment, we will email you to confirm it has been taken and that your reservation is confirmed.

We do sometimes need to ask for a delivery and collection charge depending on where you want the bikes and how many you want delivered.

As a rule of thumb we can normally offer free delivery if within 5 miles of Tunbridge Wells and if for four or less bikes. We will normally ask for a delivery fee if further afield or we need to use a trailer to transport multiple bikes.

We are based near Tunbridge Wells and try and offer delivery where we can throughout Kent & East Sussex. The further away from Tunbridge Wells, then the more notice the better and the longer or larger the order, the more likely we will be able to facilitate things for you. Please note delivery charges will apply based on how far away you are.
