If you are not sure what you want to hire, come along to one our trial and advice sessions first and we can help you figure out what will suit your family. You can hire equipment to take away at the end of the session.

Hire Rates

  • Bike seat front:  £10 a week
  • Bike seat rear: £12 a week
  • Croozer/Thule Trailers single: £40 a week
  • Croozer/Thule Trailers double: £45 a week

Hire of equipment is on a first come, first served basis.  We cannot guarantee the item you want to hire will be available on the day. It may be booked already. However, you can pre-book via email before the session or go on to onto a waiting list if what you want is booked out.

Hire returns will be the following week in the same park or location you hired from 10am to 10.30 am.

We don’t offer a fitting service as part of the sessions, but all hire equipment comes with instructions and/or manuals to fit to your bike. Your local bike shop or our sister company Manchester Bike Hire can fit it for you.
