    Our Standard Hire bikes include bikes from Scott, Specialized, Merida and Cube. 

    All have front suspension to help you have a more comfortable ride around the gravel tracks.  Most have 27 gears or more, and a mix between disk brakes and v-brakes (around the rim of the wheel).  Within the standard fleet we have a different mix of wheel sizes including 26”, 27.5” and 29”. 

    These bikes are designed for use on the gravel tracks around the forest.


    We understand that finding a perfect bike can be a problem so whilst you are out riding remember, if you ride a bike on hire and fall in love with it you can ask the staff for a price and walk away with it on the day!  (You will get your hire price knocked off the price you pay for the bike!)  It will get a full service before you leave (usually takes between 30min – 1hour), and you get another free full service in 6/12 months time.  All our hire bikes are sold off art the end of every season, with many bikes having only been used for 6 months – ask in the shop for details when you come to hire.
