Dalby Bike Hire

Dalby bike hire coming this summer! 

Mountain biker at Darkgate Dyke in Dalby Forest


We are pleased to say the bike hire will be available once the permanent bike hire shop is ready. It is currently being refurbished.

It will supply top quality hardtail and electric mountain bikes, together with lightweight 20", 24" and 26" bikes for youngsters from Trek, one of the world's leading bike manufacturers.

Once the permanent home is finished they will be able to offer a wide range of bike models and over 50 adapted bikes for the use of disabled riders.

Included in the cost of your hire is: a helmet; pump; bottle cage and saddle bag containing a puncture repair kit, multi-tool and spare inner tube.  We can also supply trail maps and share our years of experience and knowledge of the routes so you will feel confident in whatever you do.

If you have questions about what will be available, prices and so on, please email and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

The following will also be on offer:

Guided rides
'Taster' sessions for those new to mountain biking
School group events
Charitable association events
Community Engagement Programmes and more!

The new shop will have a selection of bikes for sale with servicing and maintenance to keep your trusty steed in good working order. A range of family based events and to encourage visitors to head out and explore the forest on two wheels will be planned throughout the year. We look forward to opening our new bike hire shop in summer, watch this space for more information.

With so much more to do in Dalby for all the family, come and enjoy the whole day in a beautiful woodland setting.  Apart from cycling, Dalby offers:  Go Ape Tree Top Adventure and Tree Top Junior; Adventure Playground; Highway Rat Activity Trail; Gruffalo Orienteering; Forest Segway; Dalby Activity Centre; two cafes and plenty of picnic and seating areas.
