Electric Bike Hire

Hiring an electric bike is a great idea.  You don't have to invest in buying your own bike (although we know that most people do sooner or later having tried these wonderful machines).  You can experiment with a variety of machines to see which might suit you best.  You can come on holiday to Dorset or anywhere in the South West and hire our bikes for as long as you want, to allow you to explore a lot of areas that are inaccessible to cars and quite frankly arduous on foot.  

We are one of the very few cycle businesses in the South West to hire out electric bikes.  We are - we are fairly confident - the ONLY cycle business in the South West hiring out such high quality bikes.  We are the only business in the South West offering a fully equipped and experienced electric bike workshop to maintain those bikes.

When you are on holiday and time is precious you really do not want to hire a bike that is liable to let you down and cause frustration.  We only hire out the sort of bikes that we would like to hire ourselves.  So we hire out Raleigh road bikes and Haibike MTBs.

We hire out e-bikes by the hour, half day, day, days, week or even month. Just ask us for the period you are interested in and we will quote you a price.  Our prices start at just £15 for a half day's hire of the go-anywhere, do-anything Raleigh Velo XC.  Our main fleet of Raleigh Forge step through unisex bikes start at just £10 for an hour's hire.  We have public liability insurance up to £3 million and we are confident that any bike leaving our shop as a hire bike is well serviced, roadworthy and safe.  We use tracking devices on the bikes to ensure everyones' safety.  We offer you a full explanantion of how your bike works and some hints on safe cycling.  Don't forget we commute on these bikes, on these roads.

We use a dedicated web site called Bicycle Rental Manager that automatically takes your booking and processes the paperwork and payment. It can be done remotely – via Ipad or Iphone – or on our webpage. You are more than welcome to call anytime on 01305 753737 to talk to us if you prefer.

When you hire a bike from us you will get a fully serviced and properly set up bike that we are confident will not let you down. The core bikes in our fleet are the Raleigh Forge (link) and the Haibike Hard 7 SL (link). We always have one of the most extensive stock of electric bikes in England in our showroom and you are more than welcome to hire any of our other bikes subject to availability.

We do of course - as a Raleigh /Accell main dealer - have access to any bike you might like to rent.  It doesn't have to be electric.  Nearly any bike listed on the Raleigh website is available from us.  Please e-mail or call us to tell us what you want and we will do our best to access it for you.  This is particularly useful for families who may wish to hire electric bikes for the grandparents or parents in the group, but non-electric for the under 14s.

When you hire from us you will get a helmet, lock and lights. These are all included in the price.  You will also get access to us - we know Dorset and the surrounding areas and will suggest routes and tours to suit you and your needs.  We have extensive contacts with tourist bodies and independent cycle tour organisers in South West England, any of whom will be delighted to organise trips for you either guided or unguided. We work closely with the town council's toursit group in Weymouth and can help point you in the right direction for days out.

Whatever your requirements we can offer a great choice and best value in renting out electric bikes in the South West.  We can deliver and collect bikes from wherever you are based although we do have to charge to cover our transport costs.  Sites close to our Poundbury base attract a nominal charge - especially if it is within range of our zero-emmission electric van !

You can be sure that when you hire electric bikes from us you will get the best bikes at the best price, all backed by expert advice and service.  We really want you to enjoy your time in Dorset and especially when you are on one of our Raleigh or Haibike bikes - happy customers are what we want !
