Hiring is a good way of trying a different type of bike – perhaps a tandem (UK list from Tandem Club) or a Mountain Bike instead of your normal get-to-work bike.

Hire companies usually have new bikes each year (or more often if they are used a lot).

Edinburgh shops that hire

Biketrax, Cycle Scotland, Leith Cycle Co

  2. I’m not in Edinburgh but I do hire a very unusual, extremely different type of bike!

    I have been emailing a few bike shops in Scotland in regard to hiring or buying a good touring bike for a solo trip of Scotland, but have received very few positive responses. Biketrax in Edinburgh typical in their brief response that they do not hire touring bike with a rack and no discount for long term hire. Do they want bike tourists in Scotland? or am I just encountering some people having a bad day.. If anyone can hire or sell me a good touring bike in May for an elderly six foot client who requires granny gears and is carting his own panniers around I would be most grateful if you could contact me via my email.
