How we Hire
Well, generally its to park users who want some gentle excersise and a bit of fun, or to let the kids burn off some steam after a week of being cooped up.
We can deal with larger groups, a birthday party say, or a social group, or a school group (of just about ANY sort) and we oftenhire special bikes to adland.
1. for individuals & families
Turn up and hire, its that simple!. We need an adult to fill out the hire form and to be responsible for the bikes during the hire, we take your name address and contact number, note the bikes to be hired and the hire from and to times, and we ask to keep a surety, either a bank card or driving license is fine. You get a copy of the hire form including a map of the park showing where you can and cant cycle, and you all pedal off smiling and having fun for an hour. An hour is usually enough for most people, though you can hire for longer if you wish. There’s no need to book – we have lots of bikes – if there’s a queue it’s normally not too long to wait, and if all the bikes are out already there will at least be some coming back every couple of minutes
2. for parties
Childrens parties, hen days, birthdays, small office outings etc. We can deal with groups of upto 25 kids or around 20 adults at a time with enough bikes for everyone to be riding the same sort of bike we can get everyone sharing the same fun. Of course, if a spread of bikes is required that’s not a problem either.
Everyone gets taught how tho ride the bikes if required, we give everyone a safety breifing and show them all the route, after that its time to go off into the park and have fun. Discounts of 10% apply for anyone booking over 10 bikes. We don’t need to take a deposit, if it rains – just come along anyway! For some reason kids will have 5 times more fun if its wet, just make sure everyone has a change of clothes and a towel and be prepared to get them warmed through afterwards – chips and beans works well. We’ve got space to leave bags and coats etc so you don’t have to carry them all with you.
3. for groups & schools
We can deal with school-groups both mainstream and special needs, day care centres, youth groups, and just about any other type of group. As we’re an inclusive service we don’t separate different types, and we hire in just the same way as normal.
If you’ve not hired from us before we’d recommend a site visit where we can show you the park, the bikes and talk to you about how we can make your visit go as smoothly as possible.
Cycling as an activity carries an inherent level of risk – though this is still considered to be small.
We have a risk statement (rather than a matrix) that we can send you.
Payment can be on the day or by invoice.
4. for filming & adland
Bikes are available for filming and media items, for information give us a call. Prices dependant on your client, product and time/duration of hire.
We can also supply special bikes with riders/handlers for specialist TV programs.
We’ve worked with Tellytubbies, Blue Peter, Gadget Show and more.
