WHERE CAN I HIRE?

WE HAVE TWO VENUES THAT WE OFFER BIKE HIRE FROM. CHECK BELOW TO SEE WHICH VENUE WILL SUIT YOU BEST

WINDERMERE CANOE KAYAK
BOWNESS

This is the ultimate bike hire spot for traffic-free family-friendly rides in the Lakes.

Straight onto the Windermere Ferry for a trip across the water, and then a ride to Wray Castle.

Hawkshead, Grizedale, Coniston, Grasmere, Rydal, The Langdales and more can be found by heading a little furter afield along bridlepaths and quiet lanes.

Total adventure bike hire
Windermere

This venue supports a wider offering of bikes, including Premium models and Gravel bikes.

The western shore line is still accessible by ferry, only a short road ride away, and from here there is easier access to more challenging mountain bike trails in the fells to the north and east of Windermere.

This venue does not suit families with young children, or riders nervous of the roads, as well as our Bowness venue.

WHAT CAN I HIRE?

WE HAVE AN EXTENSIVE RANGE OF BIKES TO CHOOSE FROM. YOU'LL FIND THAT DIFFERENT BIKES ARE AT DIFFERENT VENUES

With our broad range of bikes, we've got you covered for bike hire.

Kids bikes from £19 - Adult bikes from £29 - Electric bikes from £49.

Our two main brands are Scott and Forme, so quality product is always assured. We have children bikes, mountain bikes, premium MTBs, gravel bikes and, of course, electric bikes. 

You'll be able to choose the bike type when you make your reservation. You may need to change hire venues if you don't see the style of bike you are after.

The FAQ's SECTION

We don't think so! Everyone should be able to enjoy the thrill of riding a bike regardless of age. As long as you fit the bike and are able to ride, you are good to go. We don't provide stabilisers and unfortunately will not hire to novice riders who are unable to ride.

The only age restriction is for electric bikes, you must be at least 14 years of age to legally ride an electric bike in the UK, so we can't hire an eBike to anyone younger. Proof of age may be required for younger looking riders, so please come prepared and don't be offended if asked for it.

Our two venues are not far apart, but offer different bike types, and our Bowness venue does suit families better with no requirement to ride on busy roads.

Your choice of venue may simply be based on what type of bike you need, or proximity to your accommodation. For more detailed info please scroll back up the page to the venue section.

We offer a few different types of bike:

MTB's

  • Standard MTB's for general use on roads and trails up to intermediate level.
  • Premium hardtail MTB's for those looking for something lighter and a little more agile over more adventurous terrain.
  • Full suspension MTB's are a better choice for more advanced trails snd are equipped with a dropper post to make tricky descents safer.

Electric bikes

  • Electric hybrids are suited to quiet lanes and gentle bridlepaths and will provide gentle support on the hills to make the ride easier.
  • Electric hardtail MTB's are a well specced and powerful machine, suited to roads and trails up to intermediate level.
  • Electric Full Suspension MTB's are the best choice for rough off-road rides on trickier terrain. With big wheels, supple suspension, powerful brakes and a dropper post, they suit trails better than tarmac.

Gravel

  • Gravel bikes are a good all-rounder for seeing as much of the Lakes as poss in the smallest amount of time. They'll cover ground well on tarmac, and take basic off-road trails in their stride. But don't be tempted to try picking off terrain that is too ambitious, that is what an MTB is for.

During the booking process you will find a height guide next to each size offering. This is here to help guide you to the correct size option.
