Plymouth Bike Hire
Cycle Drake's Trail starting from The Bike Bus
Thank you for your support during the Spring and Summer of 2015. The Bike Bus remains open for bike hire on Saturdays and Sundays. But with the season now drawing to a close we will be shut on weekdays. So just come on down as normal for weekend hires.
Week day hire continues to be available by prior arrangement only. Please let us have as much notice as possible and we will do everything we can to meet your weekday hire requirements.
Hire your bikes direct from The Bike Bus right at the start of the traffic free Bike Trail. The Bike Bus is located at Coypool Park and Ride (PL7 4TB) just off the A38 at the Plympton junction. You can catch buses (PR2 or 21) from Plymouth City Centre or drive and park right next to us. From here if you are feeling energetic you can pedal all the way to Ilfracombe in North Devon along the Plym Valley Trail, Drake's Trail, The Granite Way and Tarka Trail but you might want to take a few days to do this! We would suggest that for a one day adventure you stick to the Plym Valley and Drake's Trail. Or alternatively, ride in the other direction to Saltram House with its lovely gardens and paths and then onto Plymouth's Waterfront with glorious views across Plymouth Sound to Drake’s Island and the Breakwater. "Cycle the city, coast and moor"
Beetle along the Plym Valley And look out for the steam trains!
Weather permitting, the Bike Bus opens every day from 10 o'clock for Bikes, Bites and Beverages.
Plymouth is a large bustling city, with a stunning outlook and a fantastic bike trail onto Dartmoor. One of our hire bikes is an excellent way to enjoy it. If you have adrenalin to burn hire one of our mountain bikes and blast into the new woodland and valley trails nearby. Or take a gentle family cycle onto Dartmoor with its Tors, Rivers and Woodland. Just follow the Plym Valley Steam Railway line and Drake's Leet.
Come to The Bike Bus and hire your bike. Debit or credit cards only. Sorry no cash! Call us and pre-book if you want to hold some bikes back.
We have a selection of bikes in various sizes for men and ladies as well as childrens' bikes and a range of accessories such as kiddies seats, tag-alongs and trailers.
Come along and try our 3 wheeled Adult Trikes, Electric Bikes or Tandems.
