New: Monthly subscription

Ideal if you plan to be a frequent user of one of our bikes! For £25 a month you can hire one bike at a time for up to 2 x 1 hour bike rides a day as part of the monthly fee. Perhaps you are looking to get fit for the summer, or you want to use a bike to hop between the Countrybike posts at Heathfield, Horam, Hailsham or Polegate (near the station) on the Cuckoo Trail. If so, then the plan could be ideal for you.

RESTRICTIONS:

  • You are permitted to hire the bikes twice a day for up to one hour. Additional time is then charged at £2.50 per 30 minutes.
  • You must return the bike to the location you hired it from unless hiring a bike on the Cuckoo Trail. On the Cuckoo Trail, you are permitted to end your ride at any of the designated Countrybike posts along the route (located at Heathfield, Horam, Hailsham and Polegate) as long as you can safely secure the bike to a free bike post. 
  • Please note due to limitations of the App, you cannot hire multiple bikes simultaneously if signed up to this plan. If signed up and you want to hire multiple bikes, then you must register another email address and sign-up to the Pay as You go plan.
