      Road Bike Hire

      For all our cycling trips we have an excellent fleet of bikes available to hire.

      Each bike comes equipped with a bike computer, compact handlebar bag plus a saddle bag with spare tube, tyre levers and pump. Helmets and water bottles are included.

      • For our road bikes, we offer the Trek Checkpoint ALR 5 – 49, 52, 54, 56, 58, 61 cm frames available – all bikes are fitted with road tyres

      • For our hybrid bike, we offer the Trek FX Sport 4 – Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, XX-Large available

      • For our e-bike, we offer the Trek Verve+ – Small, Medium or Large available

      Road Bike – £175
      Hybrid Bike – £175
      E-Bike – £300*

      *If you think that you or a travelling companion would need an e-bike to complete the trip please speak to one of our friendly adventure consultants before booking. There are a maximum of 2 e-bikes available per trip and these are strictly on a first come, first served basis.

      Please note that since our 5 Countries tour is a longer trip bike hire costs £225 per bike for road and hybrid bikes.


      The benefits of hiring from us are:

      • You don’t need to worry about transporting your bike to or from the start / end point;
      • Your bike will be fully customised for you and ready to ride on Day 1;
      • We will ensure it is kept in top condition during the trip;
      • You simply hand the bike back at the journey’s end.

      To reserve your bike:

      • Online – Simply note that you require a hire bike in your traveller notes when you book. The hire cost will be added to your invoice when we process your booking.
      • Phone – Simply let us know you want to hire a bike and we can add it to your booking.

      Sizing and customisation:

      After booking we will send you an online form to complete with your sizing information and any specific requests for your bike setup. This will let us assign you a bike and have it set to your requirements for when you arrive.

      in your own words

      This has quickly risen to the top of my short list of trips I must do again (along with the Outer Hebrides!). Beautiful scenery, great undulating rides, wonderful accommodations. Highly recommend!
