Group Hires / Bike Events
2023 – DUE TO SUPPLY CHAIN PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND BREXIT WE CANNOT CATER FOR GROUP BOOKINGS OF MORE THAN 5 PEOPLE DURING PEAK SEASON (JUNE 25TH – AUGUST 25TH).
As specialists in bike rentals we cater for larger groups for any period from a half day city tour, corporate and conference bike events or extended educational study groups of a few weeks (for 2023 availability will continue to be a problem due to supply chain and wholesale pricing issues) . Whether you are organizing a fun day, conference or traveling with a class of students we have many years experience in tailoring bookings for your needs . If your group is more than 5 people then we will need to prepare a booking in advance. Please contact us with details and we will reply to discuss the possibilities.
B2B Bike Leasing
Over the years we’ve been approached by a number of local companies to offer bikes fleets for employees and visitor to be able to access cycling from the workplace. This is a tailored service, so through understanding the clients requirements and agreed specification we provide fully equipped bikes along with a scheduled servicing and repair plan within an contract for bikes, accessories and maintenance. Contracts can be renewed upon completion and clients will receive all new equipment. Please contact us if your company is considering such an idea to as we will be happy to discuss the possibilities.
