Hire bikes are assessed by a qualified mechanic prior to being hired but please make sure that you follow the Mountain Bikers Checklist for your own safety (please request a copy if you are not familiar with it), and assess your bike before riding and regularly during your ride.

PAYMENT for hiring is due at time of booking. Delays in returning rental bikes will be charged for at a rate of £5 per bike, per 15 minutes late.
LOSS AND DAMAGE DEPOSIT – A deposit is required for each bike hired. The amount of this deposit will vary depending on the value of bike being hired, this will be detailed in the specific details for each bike. This deposit is refundable on safe return of the bike. We will take a swipe of your card for this deposit which will need to be pre-authorised by your bank. The hirer will be liable to pay in full the cost of any loss or damage of the bike / equipment which may be over and above that of the security deposit.
