Temporary Closure

Following the latest government guidelines, the centre will be temporarily closed from 5th November to 2nd December 2020. For all enquires please get in touch through the contact us page on our website. Stay safe and we hope to see you again soon in December!


Initially we have reopened for cycle hire by online bookings only. Bookings on the day are possible using your smart phone, although this is subject to availability. Bikes and equipment are cleaned, safety checked, then handed over outside the centre in the fresh air at the pre-booked date and time. For bike sales or repairs please email using our contact form to book an appointment. Only one customer may enter the centre at a time. Payment by card only.


Although the centre is temporarily closed due to coronavirus, we’ve been busy painting, refurbishing and deep cleaning ready for reopening, hopefully soon! Stay safe and we hope to see you in the near future.

Temporary Closure

Following the recent government guidelines we have made the tough decision to temporarily close the cycle hire centre. The is for the safety of customers, staff and to help reduce the spread of coronavirus. Please note, this is just a temporary measure and we look forward to reopening the centre again at a future date. Please contact us by email if you have any queries or if would like to rearrange a booking. Stay safe and we wish you all the best during these challenging times.
