Bike Hire

At Whinlatter Bikes, we have a large fleet of mountain, road, kids and electric bikes available year-round. No matter where you want to explore, we have the bike to suit you. The Shimano electric motor system used on our Merida ebikes enables every single hill in the surrounding area to be tackled, leaving no corner of the North Lakes' unreachable. 

Each bike hired from Whinlatter Bikes is supplied with everything you need for the days riding at no extra cost. Helmets, repair kits and even maps are all essentials when riding, so we supply them free of charge with each bike!

All of our staff members have excellent knowledge of local trails, road routes and famliy days out. Each ride we reccomend has been tried and tested, with every possible cafe along the way also sampled in our quest for the perfect pit-stop!

Renting with Whinlatter Bikes has never been easier! With our online booking system coming online soon, we can still take bookings via phone or email! 

We rent all of our bikes for half and full days, and we also offer discount for group and longer bookings! Read on for more info...
