Bike Hire from Ferry Nab, Bowness-on-Windermere

The Lake District has some of the best biking trails in the UK.  From our base, on the shores of Windermere Lake, you have a choice of routes suitable for all levels of fitness and ability. We are right next to the Windermere Ferry, so access to the beautiful western shore is very easy.

Please note, the current COVID-19 requirements for public transport means that you will only be allowed to use the ferry if you are wearing a face covering. Currently they will also only accept contactless payments.

Helmets are provided and must be worn when hiring our bikes. You will also receive a lock and a route map to keep you on the right track. Routes are also available to be downloaded into your smart device.

Please note there must be one person aged 18 years or older within your party.

Bikes are available for collection from 9:00am onwards and must be back at our store by 4:00pm. Our bikes and helmets are currently being sanitised daily, to be safe for you to use.

Weather Limitations

Obviously, being surrounded by mountains and being situated in the UK we have our fair share of bad weather. Every now and again the wind picks up to an unpleasant level and we have to cancel hire for the day. Please ring before journeying to us to our base to avoid disappointment. We are happy allow experienced cyclists out in most conditions – just speak to our staff.
