“It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best” – Ernest Hemmingway

We believe that the humble bicycle is everyone’s golden ticket to their own unique adventure. Whether or not you’re a ‘cyclist’, to escape on a bike is to immerse yourself in both a landscape and its culture; whether that’s right on your own doorstep or on the other side of the planet. Traveling slowly enough to observe the smallest details in the environment but fast enough to notice vast changes in it too, you have total freedom to explore and to stop or go whenever you want. It’s easily possible to carry enough stuff to support yourself comfortably whilst a the the same time forcing you to simplify life down to it’s essentials. In the search for food, water and shelter you likely to make friends out of strangers and engage in local cultures in places you’d never expected to find yourself. Unlike most other forms of transport, traveling by bicycle is not about the destination but the places inbetween.

 However, to unlock all of these unknown wonders there’s one or two things you’ll need first….

That’s where we come in. We’ve got all the stuff you need for a cycling adventure, even if you’ve never done anything like it before. Rather than shelling out loads of money buying all the kit, why not try it out by renting it of us first? We’ve got full bike and equipment hire set ups to suit you and if you’ve got your own bike you’d like to use, you can hire just the the kit for your adventure.

For first timers, to get clued up on what to do and how to use the gear we highly recommend coming along on one of our Introductory Courses(link) where you’ll get half price bike and kit hire on a great two day practical course where we show you all the ropes and head out to sleep under the stars.
