Bike Hire - Pedal Progression

Bike Hire



Mountain biking is awesome! If you don’t already know how fun it is, hire a bike from us and see for yourself. If you already know or want to share the experience, then we’ve got you covered with our high quality rental fleet of Marin and Isla Bikes. Browse our bikes below, select what you need and we’ll make sure they’re reserved for your visit. Advance booking is highly recommended, we can be extremely busy so book early to avoid disappointment. Make sure you scroll down below the booking wizard to view further important information. Rental reservations can be made up to an hour in advance online. If you need a rental sooner, please call us on 0117 973 1298 to make a booking and pay over the phone. On Move GB, or using a Gift Voucher ? you will need to call us to book. Sorry, at present our online booking can not accomodate these payment types. Rest assured we are working on this. Please make sure to read our full terms and conditions before you book your rental. If you’re having problems viewing our wizard on your smartphone then try using it here.

  • Please bring a form of photographic ID – only a driving licence or passport is acceptable.
  • You’ll also need to use a chip and pin debit card under the same name as your ID. If you don’t book and pay online, we’ll need a swipe of your card in store for security. We cannot accept cash for bike hire.
  • A signed waiver – this is filled out on the day and gives you responsibility. You can read our hire terms here.


In order to run an efficient service we take full payment which is non refundable with less than 10 days notice. We are also unable to offer refunds or credit for bikes returned early. Please see our full terms for more details. At busy times you may have to wait in a queue to collect your bike. We recommend arriving 15 minutes before your session is due to start and will always endeavour to allow you your full time on the bike unless you are late arriving and the bike you have booked is needed for following customers who have paid. If booking by phone 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. We have helmets available for men and women, subject to availability. All bike rentals include free helmet hire. Feel free to bring your own helmet if you wish.


We have a loyalty card scheme, similar to ones you get in coffee shops! Please ask us for a card next time you’re in store. If you have a fully stamped card and wish to redeem your free hire, simply fill out all fields as asked on our online booking system, except for your payment details. This will create a provisional booking on our system. Call us on 0117 973 1298 and explain that you have a fully stamped loyalty card to redeem. We’ll do the rest. You MUST bring the loyalty card with you in order to claim your free hire.


Pedal Progression is surrounded by the Nova mountain bike 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!
