Disappointing day
Aug 2020 • Family
Very disappointed. We emailed our request. We got a call back confirming our requirements. We turned up but the guy on duty had no record of the booking. A lovely final family day out at the end of our holiday was ruined. The children were very disappointed. We later got a call to apologise for the 'mistake'. Not the best way to run a business.

Disappointing
Jun 2019 • Family
We booked our bike hire using the online booking form on the website. Didnt hear a response and had to ring up ourselves to confirm the booking. We arrived for our slot and it seemed they weren't expecting us. The man working that morning was quite unhelpful, no helmets offered nevermind provided so thankfully we had brought one from home for our 3year old. There was only three routes provided which was two 17mile routes or one 4 mile route, we only had the bikes for half a day so had to choose the 4 mile route. We had mentioned to the man which route we were using but he had not warned us how inappropriate the route was for a pull-along, which was inappropriate and unsafe due to extremely steep decline slopes. On more than one occasion we had to stop, take our daughter out and walk the bikes down the slope. We took the bikes back 2 hours earlier, as despite stopping for a picnic, the route was done in no time. We would have considered repeating the route but due to the downhill parts decided against it. Reasonable prices for bike hire, the bikes were decent but everything else about the hire was very very poor

Very sorry you couldnt find us we have moved premises but the council have not allowed me to take any action over moving the brown signs, we are now at ex230jd based at the Weir restaurant on the canal towpath. The shops in the old premises have our details but i guess they shut over Easter.On line enquiry form has been working, i had your message (responded to on 17th April at 16.21 hrs, check your email,) and had you booked in for Sunday morning.

Superb!
Aug 2018 • Family
Hired for a family of 5 (including a toddler) bikes and a trailer for yesterday afternoon. I called Bude Bikes who were very helpful as we were complete Novices. We hired some Battery powered bikes given this was the first time in 20 years my wife and I had cycled! We arrived an hour late due to pit stops at the services....kids! It was 2pm but the bikes were waiting for us along with a route recommended for us (coastal and countryside). The guy who set up the bikes for us , who was great by the way and off we went with me pulling the trailer. He really knew his stuff. The scenery was everything I’d hoped for. A little challenging for us which i’d hoped for also but the E-Bike was so worth it. You still cycle up hills but it helps you do so which was needed, wouldn’t have enjoyed it so much without the E-Bike. We stopped off for tea and scones at Weir Cafe and then carried through a small path through trees , fields to the coast. Loved the afternoon and got back bang on 5pm.. No IPad, XBOX or PS4! Just us!! Had a great time. Highly recommend this company and its staff! Thanks for a super 1st afternoon in Bude!

Great customer service and well looked after equipment.
Cycle routes are good but it is hilly.
Good locations around the routes for food stops.

Excellent bikes and service
Jul 2018 • Family
Hired a Raleigh Strada hybrid plus tag-a-long for my youngest, 2 kids bikes and an electric bike. All bikes in v good condition. Couldn’t be more helpful in terms of advice for best bikes for each person and possible routes. All round excellent experience and worth doing when the surf goes flat....plus v hard for the kids to use their iPads while riding...

Great bikes and routes
Jul 2018 • Couples
Hired Two electric bikes for a full day.
The bikes were of a good standard and we chose routes one and two which were ideal for me and the wife, who had little or no experience of electric bikes.
The routes were very scenic and easily managed.
Great service and made very welcome, would definitely use again.
Really made our day and the beaches were lovely.
Highly recommend.

Electric Mountain Bikes rock!
Jun 2018 • Solo
I was of the view that the electric mountain bike concept was flawed. However after a day bombing around trails, beaches and towpaths on a Haibike, I am a complete convert. The bike is simply brilliant and I am going to have to buy one. Eats up the hills and you feel you can go anywhere. Bude bikes make hiring a breeze - friendly, competent, efficient service

Hi Tim - So glad you had a great time on the Haibike - they really are a lot of fun. Don't forget we sell them too and are always happy to offer great deals and match prices! Look forward to seeing you again next time.

2 mile countryside bike ride to a fab beach!

Fab setup. We took the track to black rock beach with a 3 & 6 year old - great pub at the end of it as well. Electric bike a definate for towing back uphill :-)
