British Trails UK


mtbBased in UK, we provide a specialist mountain bike guide and hire service for bike riders, activity or expedition groups and corporate teams. We offer award winning bikes at very competitive prices and also a very flexible leadership services:

  • Forget the hassle that normally goes with cycle hire. Our Mountain Bike Hire and Delivery Service will bring quality mountain bikes to you at the start of your bike journey, at your accommodation, or at another agreed location in order to achieve the best possible ride.
  • As our hire business is delivery based then we do not have the overheads of a town based hire centre. For this reason we are able to maintain extremely competitive hire rates. Why not compare our prices with other hire firms - don't forget to consider the standard of the bikes!
  • Are you an activity group or a corporate team looking for a challenging and rewarding day out?- Why not arrange for us to deliver bikes to your activity or conference centre. Full guiding and leading services also available with local fully qualified guides.
  • Are you a group of friends or associates wishing to tackle the infamous Sea to Sea  or Reivers Cycle Routes which run from coast to coast? We can supply bikes and luggage carriers (rear pannier racks and bags) fit for the purpose to your start point and collect them at the end.- No compulsory accommodation arrangements apply so you're free to do as you please, (though we can help recommend the best accommodation for your needs should you wish).
