What Our Fantastic Customers Say
Hired two bikes whilst on holiday in Devon in August 2015 . Fantastic location and cycled from the hire centre to Lydford gorge then back in the other direction to Okehampton . Great fun for adults and kids alike and route should be easy for most . Lovely views over Meldon reservoir . My teenage daughter really enjoyed herself . Staff very helpful and accommodating and bikes were of good quality . Price very reasonable too . We did the whole route in three hours but you could make a day of it stopping off for a pint or cream tea in one of many available pubs or cafes on route . Highly recommended Taipanmamba Aug 2015
