    Great service!
    Great bunch of people. I stopped in Burley for an ice cream and a drink. I then found I had a puncture on my Fat Bike. These need extra big tubes and this was a worry! They had one in stock and fitted it for me immediately, and for a low price that I could hardly believe. They have a good range of standard and e-bikes for hire or sale. I tempted to have a new one!
    Hi Brian, Thanks for leaving a great review. Glad we could help you get rolling again and found the staff helpful. All the best, Harry New Forest Cycling

    Great cycling in Burley!
    Very easy to find as it's right in the centre of Burley. We just showed up without booking online and found the whole process to be very smooth and straightforward. The bikes were all great and adjusted to our heights. We got a rucksack with bike locks, a pump and a puncture kit just incase. The helmets were also included in the price. Burley is a lovely place to bike in and spot lots of wild horses. Would highly recommend.
    Hi snbtravels, Thanks for leaving a great review, glad you found the service easy and straight forward. We hope to see you again. Kind Regards, Harry New Forest Cycling

    Excellent Bike Hire
    We had a fantastic day cycling through the forest on electric bikes. We reserved in advance and arrived to find everything ready. Really friendly and helpful staff, good quality bikes & fun trails that were mainly off any roads. I highly recommend & only wished we lived closer so we could go as often as we liked.

    Fun Experience around Burley
    Great experience, stunning countryside, a real fun activity, would highly recommend and also recommend Forest Leisure Cycling in Burley. The staff are ultra helpful and were really friendly and professional. Harry was great! Would highly recommend as an activity, we had E bikes and we cycled for many miles. E bikes let you extend your distance - you get so see so much more of the countryside and the New Forest
    Hi bev120862 Thank you so much for your kind review and taking the time to leave one. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your ebike and your day out with us. We hope to see you again. Kind Regards Luke New Foret Cycling

    Fantastic cycle hire and a perfect way to see The New Forest
    If you want a fantastic way to see The New Forest, you should pay a visit to Burley and hire pedal bikes from New Forest Cycling (Forest Leisure Cycling). This is our third time New Forest Cycling (Forest Leisure Cycling). We keep going back due to the high-quality bikes, as well as the knowledge, professionalism & friendliness of all the staff. We popped in on Saturday to reserve two electric pedal bikes for the upcoming Monday. When we arrived on Monday, the bikes were ready for us, the very helpful staff member showed us some cycling routes, then got us set up on the bikes and off we went. The routes recommended by the staff were amazing, 27 miles later, we arrived back. The staff were genuinely interested in wanting to know how much we enjoyed ourselves and what we thought of the recommendations they had given us. We will be back again when we visit the New Forest again.
    Hi sparkyuk77, Thank you for the great review, so glad to hear you've had continued great experiences with us. We look forward to seeing you again. Kind Regards, Harry New Forest Cycling

    Outstanding communication and customer service
    Terrific communication and service from a guy called Matt. Managed to sort us out 3 e bikes to sort individual needs. Fast turn around and very pleased with quality of e bikes. Speed and power. All staff were friendly and would highly recommend.

What a fantastic day we’ve had! We prebooked and were given our bikes in minutes. The man recommended a trail for us which was perfect. The maps were extremely easy to follow and very detailed. Highly recommend.

Hi KAREN I feel your memory is somewhat hazy regarding what actually happened so please, let me jog your memory. The first time. You came in with your sons electric bike asking for the tube to be replaced to which we said "Of course, we will do it the same day for you". You said you would be back later that day to collect but we didn't see anything of you. The bike then sat in storage collecting dust but not losing any pressure in the tube whilst it was waiting patiently for it's owner to come and collect it. Eventually once you decided to finally collect the bike 2 weeks later, in which time you made no effort to contact the shop at all, you came in store and paid £17.99 for the tube and it's fitting and went on your merry way. The second time. You came back a week and a half later saying you had a puncture but claimed the bike had not been ridden at all. Even though in my head I questioned your honesty on this as the bike looked like it had been ridden, on the spot I replaced the tube free of charge whilst you went down to the local shop. To my surprise you came back that same day to collect your sons bike and once again, off you went on your merry way. The third time. You then came in again a further 2 weeks later in quite an abrupt fashion stating you have another puncture to my colleague, again claiming that the bike had not been ridden at all over that fortnight. The dirt and dust on the bike from the forest tracks would again make me question your honesty on the matter, coupled with the fact my colleague pulled a thorn from the tyre in front of you saying that was what had caused the puncture. You then said that must have got in there from pushing the bike round from the tarmac car park. Regardless of this, we put the bike straight in the workshop and fitted yet another tube for you whilst you waited. Whilst I was fitting the tube, it was mentioned to you by my colleague that the tyres were thin and could do with upgrading. This was obviously of no interest to you as you stood there with your arms folded tapping your finger away waiting for your bike to be finished. We then charged you £7.99 for the tube and didn't charge any labour for the fitting. Obviously this upset you as you probably though you were owed another free tube and fitting whereas this was never going to be the case. After paying you left the store with said bike and went on your not so merry way. As a business, we have always gone above and beyond for our customers and to hear what you are saying about us is quite frankly amusing, as from my memory, you happened to be the one with attitude. As you have stated, you will not be coming back ever again. This feeling is very much mutual from our side so please feel free to go elsewhere in the future. Kindest Regards Luke Manager New Forest Cycling
