Good bikes for hire, very nice cycle route with good scenery away from cars. Maybe bikes could come with bottle holders and bells. Good service overall.

You won't regret this jaunt out to Ladybower. The scenery is fantastic and the service excellent. The chaps in the bike hire place are really very helpful and will accommodate all sizes, adults and kids. If you're not sure - just do it.

Just turned up on the day and was able to hire two very good bikes and helmets. Very friendly staff provided a map and advice and we really enjoyed our ride around the reservoirs.

Bikes are really good condition, no queues and friendly advice to start. Quite expensive if you hire a trailer too. And sometimes parking can be hard if its really busy.
