Last minute decision to go cycling as a whole family and we only needed to hire one adult bike and child seat, so we weren't 'big' customers . The shop couldn't have been any more accommodating. Good bike and child seat, good advice on a suggested route, a map was provided, and a discount thrown in (without asking) because it... More

Good quality bikes, helpful staff and well demarcated routes. Despite the cold weather, had a brilliant time cycling The New Forest from our base at Burley. Surely the go-to place for bike hire in the NF.

Hi There, thank you for your positive review! The New Forest is indeed a great place to ride year round due to the hard packed gravel trails that drain well and don't get too muddy! we're glad you had a good time, hope to see you again soon! Tom. More

Hired four bikes for Saturday cycle - despite the snowflakes! Very helpful staff who took the time to make sure we were happy with the bikes and helmets, had sufficient locks and free backpacks for the ride. Unfortunately a chain came off one of the bikes within the first half mile but the bike was quickly swapped out. No more... More

As it was near the end of a Winter day (2 pm with little more than two hours daylight remaining) the proprietor gave us a special deal of two bikes for £18. We completed the woodland trail, they offer you maps of the trails and a rucksack to keep vital belongings in, very impressive.

Arrived on holiday to find a spoke had broken on my new bike. Took it to this shop and it was fixed within an hour and at a very good price. Also we purchased their cycle route maps and have tried 3 so far. Very enjoyable.

A great cycle hire, with a variety of cycles, although do book ahead if you want one of the limited types like the electric or the tandem. The staff are friendly and quick, even in busy times. The basic bikes were comfortable and very well maintained. The maps of the different routes are much clearer than you think when you... More
