Cycle and Climbing Hire

Hire Information

Come and pedal a bike through the beautiful countryside, along traffic-free tracks and purpose-built trails, nature spotting and getting fit in the fresh air. Work up an appetite for a pub lunch and take advantage of our meal offers, exclusive to our hirers.

How to book

We recommend that you call ahead to book your hire bikes, particularly at weekends and during the summer holidays. Our friendly Hire Team is here to take your call 7 days a week, from 9am to 6pm. We will hold your reserved bikes until 10.30am. If you are booking bikes for a group (10 bikes or more), we can sometimes reserve bikes until later in the day - please call our Hire Team to discuss your needs.

When hiring from us, you'll need;

  • To pay with a credit or debit card - this is for security purposes
  • An adult to book if you are under 16
  • To be responsible for the bike and hire equipment
  • To wear appropriate clothing: we recommend breathable, loose fit clothing, a couple of layers and a light windproof/showerproof jacket. We don't recommend cycling in sandals or flip flops.

For the more adventurous, hire a road bike and explore the local country lanes, or take one of our platinum mountain bikes to a specialist mountain bike trail centre. You can even hire a bike for a sportive or triathlon - perfect if you're new to the sport!

Rutland Water - Whitwell & Normanton

Rutland is a magical place for cycling. Since 1981 we have been introducing people of all ages to the delights to be found by bike around the water's edge and beyond. Hire a bike from our Whitwell or Normanton centre and enjoy 23 miles of traffic-free waterside tracks - or take to the lanes and discover Rutland's hidden delights on two wheels.

As passionate cyclists, we don't think there is a better way to explore the area. There is an incredible richness of flora and fauna to enjoy on your trip. A highlight for many is the Ospreys who reside here from April to September. 2001 saw the first Osprey chick to fledge in central England in 150 years and now there are several pairs at Rutland. Yet there is much more: a wide variety of hawks, waders, warblers and songbirds can be seen at all times of year. Can you spot a really rare beast though; will you see the fabled Rutland Panther?

Around the Water's edge is a variety of welcoming cafes, pubs and restaurants, many of which provide special offers to our cyclists. With a wealth of attractions nearby and comfortable places to stay, we are sure you will have a wonderful visit.

Grafham Water

Grafham Water is Cambridgeshire's prettiest and best-kept secret and there is no better way to explore it than by bike. Come and discover the tranquil waterscapes, varied wildlife and diverse habitats of this wonderful location, a Site of Special Scientific Interest which attracts around 170 species each year. Enjoy 10 miles of peaceful waterside pedalling, or adventure out onto local bridleways along the Three Shires Way.

The variety of wildlife and beautiful wild flowers means there is always something to see, whatever the season. On your cycling adventure you will doubtless see many other water users: fishermen after trout, sailors and windsurfers before the wind, and nature spotters revelling in this unique location. Grafham Water has also become one of the most important bird watching sites in Britain.

Whichever route you choose, we're sure you'll have a fantastic time on two wheels at Grafham.

Fineshade Wood

Choose from the UK's best range of mountain bikes to hire, including hardtail, full suspension and 29ers.

Which Bikes Can I Hire?
