Eastbourne is the sunniest and driest place in the UK.
An hour by hour five-day weather forecast for Eastbourne
We are surrounded by beautiful countryside
and quiet lanes; all just waiting to be explored. Four miles to the west of Eastbourne is the world-famous Beachy Head and bicycle routes across the South Downs
National Park like the South Downs Way which stretches from Eastbourne to Winchester; a distance of some 100 miles.
Links to some bike routes
Don't forget, you can take a bike on the trains (free of charge) at Eastbourne from just before 9am, so you can explore far afield: Lewes or London, for instance.
You have come to the right place if you want a bike but don't want to spend a lot exploring this beautiful area
whilst enjoying the health benefits that come with cycling.
Remember, our main reward is your satisfaction.
Our bike hire process works like this and we always provide detailed receipts
Imagine you choose a bike that we have priced at £50 (a fairly typical figure) and you want to keep it for a day. (For other periods
and prices please click here)
You give us £50 in cash and when you bring the bike back we refund you £37; (No bike will cost more than £15 Ė net - for one day.)
Or if you keep it for two days we give you back £35;
Then you will probably need a lock so thatís £7 and we give you back £5; (It doesnít might how long you keep the lock.)
Then you might want a helmet so thatís £15 and we give you back £12. (It doesnít matter how long you keep the helmet.)
This method makes long term hire very cheap, for example, for students and protects us from the risk of theft of the bike.
Refunds will be in cash and exactly as we say they will be UNLESS, very unusually, 1) the bike has been severely damaged (for example, a wheel has been buckled) or 2) a tyre has been punctured in which case the reduction will be £7 or 3) the bike is extremely dirty, in which case the reduction will be £7 too.
Refunds for locks will be exactly as we say they will be unless the lock does not work or the key has been lost and for helmets, so long as they have not been damaged in anyway.
You can pay by PayPal (to firstname.lastname@example.org) or by Internet Banking or in cash, of course.
We don't accept cheques.
All refunds are made in cash.
If you want us to reserve one or more bikes for you we would be happy to do so, for up to two weeks, upon receipt of 20% of the bike's purchase
price. This will be deducted from whatever you owe us when you come to collect the bike.
(If you decide you don't want the bike you reserved for the period originally stated your deposit will not normally
be returned to you, unless, of course, you have another of our bikes.)
Back to the top
We usually have a supply of locks (only £2 net cost when you return them - even after months!), lights, rear carriers, helmets etc
which can be added to our bikes at competitive prices.
We repair bikes for just £15 per hour plus parts at cost: these are usually obtained secondhand
so they are inexpensive and quite often we can repair your bike while you wait. We charge a flat £7 to repair a puncture.
We buy bikes
Whatever bike you have, in whatever condition, we might be interested in buying it: ideally email a photograph.
In summary, if you want ECONOMICALLY to:
Buy a bike
Rent a bike
Hire a bike for a few hours
Hire a bike for a few days
Hire a bike for a few weeks
Hire a bike for a month
Have a bike repaired
Come to us!
We offer a refund on any bike for 31 days after we sell it.
The amount is 75% within 24 hours and drops to just under 35% after 31 days. When customers want bikes for longer than a month we are still willing to make arrangements with them on a case by case basis.
We have helmets available for a deposit of £15. When they are returned undamaged we refund £12 no matter how long you have had them.
The easiest way to get to us is by catching a bus from the either the
(There is a bus shelter by Reid & Dean, Estate Agents. They sell houses etc.) or beside McDonald's.
Get on one of the following buses: 1, 1A, LOOP, 55 and get off at The Arlington Arms.
Walk back about 50 metres and walk up Southbourne Road for about 150 metres.
We are on the right (number 255 Southbourne Road - a house - not a shop
- with six solar panels on the roof), just after where Willoughby Crescent meets Southbourne Road.
