Standard Bike

A standard bike is perfect those wanting a relaxing ride to see the scenery and explore the many gravel track trails that Grizedale has to offer, though be warned we are hilly!

Standard Bikes are front suspension mountain bikes from a range of brands such as Scott, Specialized and Saracen. They have a good range of gears and disk brakes. These bikes must only be used on the gravel tracks throughout the forest. The gravel tracks offer many miles of trails around both sides of the beautiful Grizedale Forest, with many uphill’s and exciting downhills, it is a challenge with some wonderful views to make all the effort worthwhile. For more on trails please follow this link.

Please note that these bikes are not suitable for going onto the North Face Trail or Bridleways; if you wish to explore some of these more technical riding please look at the Premium hire bikes.

Premium Bike

A Premium Bike is perfect to explore most of the trails Grizedale has to offer, and is a minimum requirement if you wish to explore the North Face Trail or Bridleways. The North Face Trail is our technical single track trail through the forest. This trail is designed for more confident riders as it is a narrow trail with rock steps, board walks, berms and other obstacles. If you wish to have a go at this trail, but are not sure pop into the shop and we will be happy to show you some of the easier sections to have a play on. If you are an experienced rider or have done the North Face trail before, then we recommend exploring the bridleways which are the natural single track through the forest. Pop into the shop for more details, or click here for more information on the trails.

Electric Bike

The electric bikes are a fun way to explore the forest on the gravel tracks.  They have an electric motor to assist you up the hills and so making it easier to explore more of the forest.  These bikes are perfect if you are wanting to explore lots of the forest, as they allow you to ride further.  They are also recommended for anyone who knows they do not enjoy the strain of an uphill, we also recommend them for towing a trailer as the electrics make the experience of towing much more interesting.

Premium Electrics

These our our full suspension electric bikes designed to go anywhere in the forest!  All the bikes are Specialized Levo’s, and are designed for the riggors of the single track.  These bikes are perfect to all those wanting a bit of a boost whist out on the trail.  A must try for all mountain bikes!

Full Suspension Bike

If you are use to riding a hard tail and are looking to take your riding to the next level, then why not try a full suspension bike?  These make riding easier, and more playful.  We will help you set up the suspension suitable for you, and then you will be ready to explore.

Tag-a-long and Trailers

For all those adventurous children who want to explore with the family we have something for you.  From 1 years old upward we have trailers that can be towed by an adults bike.  The trailers have a full roll cage and have space for two children.  We recommend hiring an electric bike to tow trailers to make it easier to hit the hills.
If your child is a little big for the trailers, and is riding with stabilisers or on their own but needs help up the hills we have tag-a-longs.  These attach to the seat post of an adults bike and allow the child to pedal along with the adults!

Children’s Bike

Our children’s bikes are either a 20″ wheel bike or a 24″ wheel bike. (We recommend anyone who is too small for a 20″ bike to go on a tag-a-long as we are very hilly for little legs!)  Any child who is taller than a children’s 24″ bike will be on a standard adults XS bike and will pay adult prices.
