Renting a bike

Our cycle hire scheme is the easiest way to get on a bike quickly. It's great if you want to hire a bike for a short time, and is available to everyone over 14 years of age.

When hiring a bike for more than a few hours, you might be able to save some money by using a company that specialises in hiring for longer periods.
