We have a fleet of six hire bikes, each of which can taken for anything from four hours to a week or more. They’re good quality hybrids from Revolution and Raleigh, in a range of women’s and men’s sizes. Prices start from just £10 for a half day. We also have a Carry Freedom Y-frame trailer for hire at the same rates.
Each bike comes complete with a rack and pannier, mudguards, front and rear LED lights, D-lock and cable lock, spare inner tube, pump, tyre levers and puncture repair kit. All included in the hire price. All bikes have triple chainsets, so you won’t have any trouble with Bristol’s hills.
Our trailer is a brilliant Carry Freedom Y-frame (small). You can see full details on the Carry Freedom site, here. Hire includes a hitch for attaching the trailer to your rear axle, where it fits securely and doesn’t adversely affect bike handling. At present we supply only the flat bed trailer, without box. It’ll easily take a typical recycling size box, which can be bungeed on, but you’l need to provide this yourself. The flatbed comes with two study velcro straps, or we can supply bungees for larger loads (no extra cost).
Bike and trailer hire is only available during workshop opening hours, as each bike needs to be checked out or in by a mechanic for safety reasons.That means 0900 to 1730 Monday to Friday or 1000 to 1730 on Saturdays. This applies to both taking and returning bikes/trailer.
Prices for bikes or trailer are as follows.
- Half day (up to four hours) – £10
- Full day (up to eight hours) – £15
- Weekend (Friday to Monday) – £35
- Week (e.g. Saturday to Saturday) – £60
You’ll need to leave a valid photo ID (e.g. passport or driving license) in order to take a bike/trailer away. Either that or leave a £300 cash deposit, refundable on return of the bike and accessories in satisfactory condition.
We can supply helmets with hire bikes, but please note that we can’t be sure of how they have been treated by previous users.
You’ll need to read and agree to our terms and conditions when you hire a bike or trailer. You can see them here.
