Recycling Update


As hopefully you will now be aware we collect old inner tubes for recycling.

So far I estimate we have collected  over 300 tubes, many thanks to all the customers who have brought in there old tubes.

We are now well over the minimum weight requirement.  Dont worry we are still collecting, remember we can take any tubes larger than 26 inch even if they have been puncture repaired. As long as they have not been cut or slit.

New Trek Marlin 29er Hire models


We are please to be able to offer 4 trek Marlin 29ers to add to the hire fleat.

Trek Marlin 29er

What is so special about a bike with 29 inch wheels, wheel that extra 3 inches compared to the the standard 26 inch wheels, found on most bikes makes for a totally different riding experience. In layman’s terms bigger wheels mean you roll over more. When climbing this means you carry momentum over technical features making it easier to clear technical climbs. The improvements when descending are again on more technical terrain the wheels roll/carry over dips and drops in a way that inspires confidence. Due to the larger wheels the ride height (bb) is higher than a 26 inch wheeled bike. Giving you a higher ground clearance which comes very handy on technical rocky trails.


So if you are considering the switch over to one or just fancy a try to see what the hype is about. Why not come try one out on some of the best trails anywhere.

We are 2 different size available 17.5 and 19.0 inch models. Full details can be found on the Hire bikes page.
