Hire FAQs

Which types of bikes do you hire?

All our bikes are comfortable, high quality hybrid bikes with 24 gears and puncture-resistant tyres – built right here in Bristol! They are suitable for gentle off-road use (such as gravel or towpath). They are not suitable for mountain biking or road racing. We do not have children’s bikes or trailer-bikes available.

For mountain bike hire in Bristol, try Blackboy Hill Cycles or Pedal Progression in Ashton Court. For tandems, contact Bristol Tandem Hire.

How do I pre-book a hire bike?

Please give us a call or drop in to Jake’s Bikes. We can take a credit or debit card payment over the phone and reserve hire bike(s) for you. All bookings are final. Cancellation may be possible up until 24 hours before your hire starts, but we reserve the right not to refund your booking if we have turned away other hire customers.

What deposit is required?

We require a valid, current passport, official ID card, or photo-card driving licence as security, which we will return to you when you bring back the bike(s). If you cannot leave one of the above with us, you can pay a £450 deposit (per bike) in cash if you prefer, which we will keep in our safe and refund to you when you return the bike(s) in good, undamaged condition.
