Bike Hire


BOOK BIKE HIRE NOW – 0117 973 1298.

Fancy having a blast around Ashton Court but don’t have a bike? Thinking about getting into mountain biking, but want to try it first? Need to do something exciting with the boyfriend? Got the kids for the day? There are many reasons why hiring a bike is a great idea!


  • A form of photographic ID – only a driving licence or passport is acceptable
  • A chip and pin debit card under the same name as your ID – we take a minimum 1 penny transaction on this card for our security and insurance
  • A signed waiver – this is filled out on the day and gives you responsibility. You can read our hire terms here.


Advance booking is HIGHLY recommended, especially at weekends when we can get extremely busy. Please don’t assume that because it’s not sunny outside, we’ll have bikes available. Call early to avoid disappointment, ideally during the week when we’ll have more time to answer the phone – 0117 973 1298.

When you call you’ll be asked when you’d like the hire to start and how long for. You’ll also be asked for the heights of those hiring bikes. Please have this information ready when you pick up the phone.

For groups of 5 people or more, we require full payment at the time of booking. This is due to high demand.

We have helmets available for men and women, subject to availability. All bike rentals include free helmet hire. Feel bring your own helmet, if you have one and feel comfortable in it.


Pedal Progression is situated behind the Golf Centre on the edge of the Nova Trail at Ashton Court, but there are other equally fun and challenging trails nearby. The local trails are graded blue for beginners and red for intermediate ability. The video below will give you a good idea of what’s available!
