Pricing varies depending on your choice of bike delivery and collection locations. Click on your preferred location below to check pricing and start the booking process.

For the 2016 season, bike hire from our rural base at Langham costs £18 per bike per day. (Discounted rates for longer hire periods as follows: 2 days: £15/day; 3 days: £13/day; 4 days: £12/day; 5 days: £11/day; 6 days: £10/day; 7 or more days: £9/day).

If you would like us to deliver your hire bikes to your Colchester hotel, and/or one of our other recommended local hire locations (see below), there is a one-off carriage charge of £20. This is levied per booking party (not per bike), and includes both delivery and collection at the start and end of your hire.

If you don't have transport to reach our Langham base, our three other recommended hire locations are Manningtree Railway Station, Marks Tey Railway Station and Kersey Church, each of which gives direct access to some of our peaceful rural trails. Please note, our £20 delivery charge for these locations also includes transportation by car to and from your Colchester hotel/B&B, if required.

If you wish to follow your own cycling itinerary rather than one of our pre-planned trails, we can also offer hire bike delivery and collection further afield across North Essex and South Suffolk, for a one-off carriage charge of £25. Our geographic delivery limits for this service are Witham to the south and west of us, and Ipswich to the north and east of us.
