The Yarmouth-based business provides family-focused cycle hire, offering quality bikes backed up with the highest standards of customer service operating from their West Wight hire centre, also providing an Island wide delivery service.
John Allen, Managing Director comments:
“We have for a long time now been looking to add additional Hire Centre locations but finding suitable facilities in the right areas has always provided a challenge, it’s definitely all about location when it comes to cycle hire. The Island’s cycling network continues to grow and improve, mostly along the old railway line network.
“We wanted a location as close to the centre of the network as possible, the Riverside location simply ticks all the boxes! It couldn’t be closer to the old Newport Stations right in the heart of the Town and adjacent to the River Medina. From the Riverside Hire Centre you can join existing cycle routes to Cowes, Sandown, Shanklin, Ryde and all Stations in between.
“Starting your journey at the River and ending by the Sea is the perfect journey, similar to those you will experience in Devon on the Tarka Trail and Cornwall on the Camel Trail. It’s also perfect for commuters who would like to use a bike to connect with passenger ferries at Cowes.
“We are very excited by the opportunity the Riverside Hire Centre affords us, it’s also going to be an amazing and beneficial addition to the Islands Cycle Hire infrastructure.”
The Riverside Hire Centre will open on 1st April 2022 and will be open 7 days a week until the end of October.
