PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU SELECT THE RIGHT HEIGHT CATEGORY AND BIKE TYPE AS OFTEN NO ALTERNATIVE MAY BE AVAILABLE ON THE DAY.
Under the terms of our hire agreement, accident and/or crash damage is chargeable to the hirer. We offer an optional damage waiver, which covers the cost of equipment repair as a result of accident and crash damage during the hire period. If you choose not to purchase the waiver then you will be held responsible for the cost of any damage that may occur to the bike whilst it is in your possession. Please note that the waiver specifically does not cover:
- Deliberate or reckless abuse.
- Theft of the bike.
