What To Bring

Photo ID, such as a valid passport or driving license, as your hire deposit.

Your helmet, if you have one. If you don’t, don’t worry as you can borrow one from us (included in your bike hire).

Your phone for taking photos/videos on your ride, and to call us if you need to when out in the forest.

A drinks/water bottle to carry your drink with you on the bike.

Comfortable, active clothing to wear that you can move freely in and that won’t snag when you ride.

Gloves and eyewear/sunglasses are also a good idea for greater comfort and protection.

A suitable bag, such as a backpack, to carry spare clothing, snacks, your phone and anything else you want to take with you.

If you’re hiring a bike, we also offer a 10% discount when buying a helmet and gloves together, and 50% off our own Quench water bottles if you need one – just ask us in-store.


Our Prices 

We hire bikes by the hour, with prices starting from as little as £15 for a kids bike; £22 for an adult standard mountain bike; £32.50 for an electric mountain bike hardtail, and £42 for an electric full suspension mountain bike so you can choose a budget, a bike and a duration to suit you. We recommend a minimum of two hours to complete either trail at a leisurely pace, although we also can hire bikes for 1hr, 3hrs, and all day.
