Bicycle hire

During my resent weekend break in Newquay I found it difficult to find information about the bicycle hire places in Newquay so I though that I would post what I found out while I was in there.

Apparently the only place to rent them is the Shoreline Gifts, located on Fore Street. Hire price is £12 per day and deposit of £50 with an ID is needed. I hired a bike from them over the May Day weekend and found them to be pretty much brand new.

The man in the Tourist Office also mentioned that someone is offering a service of renting bikes which they will deliver to your accommodation. Don’t really know much more about it, sorry.

Hope this info helps someone wanting to hire a bike.

Im sure it will be very helpful, thanks Finn.

I did not know that Shore line rented bikes. They certainly dont greatly advertise it. Maybe I will have a word.

I agree with you lillyNewquay that they should advertise the service better as they seem to be only ones providing it.

They do however have a sign advertising bicycle hire out side of the shop and they also have few bikes out there. But the bikes get somewhat “lost” behind the baskets of other goods they are selling. Thus, I could see people easily missing the fact that they are actually renting bikes.
