Our shop is always fully stocked so we have many other accessories available, if you require any additional accessories just mention at the point of reserving your hire bike.

The range of bikes includes frame types for men, women and children; all of which vary in shape and size from 1 to 3 wheels!

Choosing the right bike for you should be based on the activities or journey you intend to use it for, below we have listed definitions for each type of bike we have available for hire. However, if you prefer please contact us to discuss what is available and what best fits your needs.


Bike Range | Definitions:

Hybrid Bikes
Hybrid Bikes are designed for general-purpose utility or commuter riding on paved and unpaved roads, paths, and grass trails. This range of bike uses a combination of design features from both road and mountain bikes. The riding position is more upright and comfortable for the rider. These are great bikes to explore cities on and you will find the majority of commuters ride a form of hybrid bike. Our Dawes Hybrid trekking bikes come equipped with mudguards and rear racks as standard.

Brompton Folding Bikes
We hire the best folding bikes available; Bromptons. These bikes are manufactured in the UK to the highest standard. A folding bicycle is basically a bike designed to fold into a compact form, facilitating transport and storage. The Brompton is the perfect bike to take on mixed-mode commuting (Cycling, Planes, trains and automobiles).

Pashley Traditional Town Bikes
If you would like to ride in style then look no further than a traditional Pashley town bike. Still handbuilt in Stratford-upon-Avon the way these bikes are built has changed very little since 1926. Traditional town bikes offer the most comfortable riding prompting the rider into a very regal riding position.

Mountain Bikes
Mountain bikes are built with off-road riding in mind, and are best suited for gripping onto rough terrain. They generally have numerous gears which are perfect for casual or fast riding, or mixed terrain and riding off the beaten track. The riding position is quite upright but not generally bolt upright

Children's Bikes
Childrens bikes have smaller wheels and frame sizes, the wheel sizes for our hire bikes are 20 and 24 inch.

BMXs
BMXs normally have 16 - 20 inch wheels and a single speed. Nippy bikes which are good fun to ride and suitable for all ages but we wouldn’t recommend any long distance riding on one.

Road Bikes
Road Bikes are designed to be fast, the geometery of the frames tend to put the rider into a hunched riding position that is more aero dynamic. These bikes are great for getting from A to B quickly but if you are not used to the riding style you may find it makes for an uncomfortable ride.

Touring Bikes
We offer touring bikes from one of the worlds leading manufacturers; Dawes. Touring bikes tend to have a longer wheel base, good reliable components and stronger frames that enable lots of cargo to be carried.

Tandems
A bicycle made for two. With four pedals, and two seats. The riders are positioned with one at the front (to steer) and the other behind.

Unicycles
A bicycle with just the one wheel! Great fun if you can master the single wheel.

Work Bikes
Work bikes are built to be durable and carry heavy loads. Our workbike has a large cargo area at the front suitable to carry heavy luggage, firdges or ovens. It has been used a lot during the Glastonbury Festival to carry documentation, tents and (ahem) unwell folk. We also have a decommissioned traditional postman bike available

Cruisers
Cruisers provide an upright riding position, comfortable saddle with huge curved handlebars offering the rider a very comfortable laid back riding position.


Bike Range | Alternate:

If you intend to combine on and off road riding during your stay in Oxford you are more than welcome to alternate between different bike types for different days, or if you fancy a change of bike you are welcome to change at any time.
We have a large fleet of bikes, which is always increasing, however to avoid disappointment we do recommend that you reserve the right bike for you well in advance of your visit, contact us now to make your reservation
