Bideford Cycle Hire and Sales
Situated just a few miles from the beach in north Devon's, Tarka country, Bideford Bicycle, Surf Board and Kayak Hire is the perfect place to hire or buy a bicycle, surf board or kayak.
We run a hire fleet or over 250 bikes and as well as hiring bikes to individuals, families and groups of friends we can also cater for larger school/corporate parties and hen & stag parties too.
The Dawes Mountain Bikes, for rough riding and steep climbs, have no mudguards but masses of gears, so you'll be able to explore the far reaches of the trail. We have a large range of sizes of gents/ladies and kid's Dawes Mountain Bikes that are lightweight and extremely well built. They have chunky fat tyres to absorb the bumps if rough riding and steep climbs are your thing. They are fitted with a large range of gears so no hill is too steep, letting you explore the far reaches of Devon's lovely countryside.
We have a range of bikes for children who have mastered two wheels and for those who haven't we have the Tag-a-longs (left), trikes, buggies and child seats. Child seats can be fitted behind either gents or ladies hybrids and can carry a max weight of 22kgs (48 lbs [3st 6lbs]). The child seats have a three point saftey harness fitted, though the child does need to be able to sit up on their own.
Tag-a-longs are fitted to our hybrids and are recommended for 4 to 8 year olds. They are ideal for kids that ride with stabalisers or those who tire quickly.
Buggies and trailers are towed behind our bikes and can carry 1 or 2 children with lots of room in the back for a picnic. We have an adult trike (3 wheelier) for those who are abit unstable on two wheels which has a large basket on the back for carrying your bags.

Cycle the Tarka Trail
Come and cycle the Tarka trail, with all your family and friends. Following the old railway line safe from the dangers of traffic, through tranquil Tarka country. The trail is a level and traffic free cycle way cutting through Devon's beautiful countryside. We have free car parking and private access onto the trail, offering 34 miles of safe traffic free cycling.
Take a picnic or visit one of the many pubs on route to enjoy the local produce. The route north follows the Torridge estuary, soon coming to the village of Instow. Stop here for lunch or laze on the beach and gaze across to the historic fishing port of Appledore.
The trail continues on towards Barnstaple, following the Taw estuary past fields, marsh and a wild life reserve, a bird watcher's paradise. The trail south is totally different as at first it follows the valley of the river Torridge, from side to side through the woods and a tunnel, crossing the weir, until reaching Torrington station. Onwards from here the trail climbs gently through the sheltering woods to East Yarde. For the cycling enthusiast with lots of energy remaining you can carry on to Meeth Holt.
