Can I cycle anywhere in Guernsey?

The maps we provide clearly show the different roads/pathways on the island.  We ask you not to ride on the beaches, cliff paths, pavements or any other non-cycling designated area.

Do you provide bike lights?

Yes we do, there is a £10 one-off charge for these, just select when booking online or let us know and we can add them to your hire.

I have a baby/toddler/small child, what’s the best option for carrying them?

We have child seats fitted onto unisex adult bikes, these generally take up to 20KG and are recommended for babies/small children that are able to support themselves and their head comfortably and confidently. A trailer can carry up to 40KG and has two small seats recommended for one or two small children able to support themselves and their head.  A Tag-a-long is fitted to an adult bike and will take a child who can balance and feel safe cycling along behind. All of these options are at the parent’s discretion. Child seats are for a minimum age of 12 months.

About Booking

Do I need to pre-book or can I rent on the day?

We require pre payment and booking in advance by 12pm on the day prior to bike hire to guarantee delivery of your bike hire.  Otherwise we can arrange collection.

Can I rent for less than 24 hours?

We do not offer 24 hour rental or half day hire.

Can I book a large group?

We can easily cater for large groups adult or child, pre-booking is recommended for a group discount.

Should I choose a mountain or a trekking bike, what’s the difference?

A trekking bike is a good all round comfortable upright ride for Guernsey's lanes, coastal paths and roads, plus it comes with a basket. A mountain bike has wider tyres and is good for exploring coastal paths and rougher lane and road surfaces but cannot hold a basket.

No problem, give us a call or email as soon as your situation changes and we can sort that out for you.  Please see our Terms & Conditions for cancellation policy.
