Full Day Price

To “flatten out the fells” for over 14 years old only – For more information please click on the picture



Children’s 20” and 24” Bikes
Please note: All children who need an adult bike will be charged at adult prices (approximately over 4”10 tall).



Trailers and Tag-a-long (Including an adult bike)
Tag-a-longs and trailers are dependant on the heights of the children.
We unfortunately cannot hire a trailer to children under 1 years old.



FAMILY RATE FOR 2 ADULTS AND 2 CHILDREN (under 16 years old)



If you wish to book the family rate and any additional children onto your family group, this booking can only be made by phone. Please call us on 01229 860335

All Bikes come with helmets included. We recommend families only taking bikes for a half day, as this gives you plenty of time to explore the trails and stop for a picnic! Please be aware we cannot refund people who come back early from a full days hire.

If you are planning to pay in CASH then you must bring PHOTOGRAPHIC ID or we will be unable to hire to you.
