Bike-Hire - Hardtail

Our hardtail fleet consists of over 80 bikes, made up of Kona Cindercone’s, Genesis Core 30′s, Genesis Latitude’s & Genesis IO-ID internal geared hub rigs.

Sporting hydraulic disc brakes, suspension forks and excellent components, our hardtail bikes are capable of handling all of the trails at Glentress and are tough as nails.

The fleet caters for pretty much all heights across a range of frame sizes.
Check out the table below for a size guide:

It’s important when booking a bike to quote the exact height of the rider(s), as incorrect sizing can lead to potential discomfort or even injury to the rider and damage to the bike itself (see below).


* We can only reserve bikes if they are pre-paid. This service is currently only available via telephone (01721 721 736).

Hardtails cost £20 per day.

* When collecting the bike, we will ask to retain either a valid credit / debit card and / or photo ID in the form of a driving license or passport (no other forms of ID will be accepted).

* A helmet is provided with every hire bike and although not compulsory (yet), we strongly urge all our customers to wear one. Any additional body protection required should be brought with you or can be purchased in the bike shop.

*We can supply ‘emergency’ kits- inner tube, pump, puncture kit & tool are available to hire (£5).

* Signing of the hire agreement agrees liability for damages to the bikes that render them inoperable (this includes punctures). We strive to be fair in assessing any damages and will only ask for costs at trade prices. We don’t seek to profit from damages, merely get the bikes back on the fleet.

* It get’s very busy here, especially during Summer and at weekends all year round, so pre-booking is highly recommended. Please be sure to consult the height chart above as bikes cannot be easily swapped on the day.

* CANCELLATIONS : Refunds / transfers will only be given with a minimum 24 hours notice period. Cancellations made on the day will not be refunded or offered transfer of hire.

Above all, we want visitors to have fun! Please help us to make your visit a memorable one by following the pointers above.
