Bike Hire at The Ship Hotel

Bike hire is available from our partners Open Sky Cycles, based just a couple of miles away, who will deliver your choice of high quality gravel, hybrid or electric bike to you at The Ship Hotel, and collect it when you have finished your adventure.

Gravel Riding

Fancy trying out gravel riding?  Gravel bikes are the current go to form of cycling, enabling you to ride on or off road and can encompass all types of terrain, from actual gravel to wooded single-track and everything in between (read the Open Sky Cycles blog about gravel bikes if you are not sure what they are).  We are blessed with some of the best gravel routes around; woods, farm tracks, beach and heath. 

We’re proud to offer you a hand-picked range of gravel and hybrid bikes to rent enabling you to explore the lesser trodden paths of this stunning part of the world.  Open Sky Cycles have custom built the gravel bikes to our exacting specs to ensure they are perfect for exploring the area around us.

Hybrid and E-Bikes

If you want a more relaxed ride, then why not try one of our Merida hybrids or eBikes?  These are suitable for every-day cycling on roads and cycle paths.  The bikes have a relaxed upright position and feel stable on and off road. 

To help you get the most from the bikes Open Sky Cycles have put together a number of routes on their web site.  You can download the GPX files or use the link to access the routes on Ride with GPS.  They also provide GPS units with pre-loaded routes and mobile phone mounts so you can follow the route on your phone.
