Maybe not very easy to find (in the middle of a small park with not a great deal of signs) but very good customer service. The bikes are very nice and look brand new and well maintained. The map provided with few suggested routes was very helpful too and accurate. In a nutshell, a very good service!

Thanks for your recommendation. We know we're a bit hard to find. We used to have a banner on the fence but had to take it down because it is a conservation area. Hopefully the permanent park signage will be improved soon. Glad you found us!

If you are planning to go cycling around Scottish highlands, Ticket to Ride is your absolute best bet. The entire process of hiring the bike was very smooth and bikes were in great condition (my bike was actually brand new). We reserved the bikes on the phone and went to collect them from the outlet in Bellfield park. The bikes were handed to us instantly without any fuss and we were also given a few recommendations for the most popular routes and cafes along these. We cycled down to Loch Ness through the most spectacular landscapes - alongside sheep dotted rolling hills, meadows with cute woolly cows and wooded highlands - and this was pure fun!
We would have cycled for about 30 kilometres on the day and we were not once let down by the bikes which were an absolute delight to ride. A big thank you to the staff at Ticket to Ride for maintaining the equipment to such a high standard and ensuring that the visitors have a good time cycling around the highlands which arguably is one of the best ways to discover Scotland. Highly recommended!

Thanks for writing such a detailed review. We work hard to provide the best quality and newest bikes we can and it is pleasing that this is appreciated. Cycling on the South side of Loch Ness really is a great day out.

We rented Ticket to Ride bikes for a week recently; the whole process couldn't have been easier. Lindsay delivered the bikes to our rented cottage and picked them up on our last day. The bikes appeared to be brand new and were of good quality; they even met with the approval of my Bike Snob husband. We really enjoyed riding the trails and roads around Cawdor and will rent from Ticket to Ride next time we're in the area. Highly recommended.

Would like to say a MASSIVE thank-you to Ticket to Ride, and to Lindsay in particular. We have just completed the Ben Nevis Challenge, which amongst other things involved approx. 33 miles cycling up and down the Highlands. Absolutely beautiful scenery and fantastic weather - some challenging climbs. Fortunately Lindsay equipped us with 4 great hybrid bikes, with smooth gear changes. Service from 1st enquiry right through to the end was magnificent. We were in a bind and Lindsay helped by arranging transfer of the bikes to our hotel the night before, with provision of all necessary auxiliary equipment. Fantastic Service, Fantastic bikes, Fantastic Company. Thanks

All our enquiries by e-mail were replied promptly and we got all the advance information we wanted. The quality of a bike is important to a successful bike trip and we couldn't have had better bikes than the Treks we hired. They were in very good condition and immediately felt as good as our own bikes back home. We got friendly service and good advice for choosing the route to Loch Ness. An excellent place to hire a bike!

Thanks for the great review. It's good to know we can help visitors enjoy their holidays. Bike hire is our main business, we buy new bikes every year and always try to improve the specification to offer the best, lightest most reliable hire bikes in Inverness. Hope you can come back again. If you didn't see the monster this time you were probably just unlucky ;-)
