Visiting Birmingham for a short period of time? Lost without your bicycle? Trying to decide if cycling is for you? Not sure that you want to buy a bike and find out that cycling isn't for you? Then maybe hiring a bicycle is the answer.
We reckon that currently only two places in Birmingham that do cycle hire. One is On Your Bike. They are based at 33-40 Bradford Street, Birmingham, B5 6HX
(Phone: 0121 666 6933 or Email: email@example.com).
Some of their hire bikes are seriously light road bikes but Hybrids are available too if you want to commute with loads.
The other option for hiring a bicycle is Bike Pro Racing who are a local independent bike store located at 50 High Street, Kings Heath, Birmingham, B14 7JZ (Phone 0121 441 1199 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) and they also hire cycles out. Their rates vary between £25 and £35 for a day (as of August 2013) but further details are available on request and on their web site.
If you live in the north of Birmingham there is FREE bike hire through the Bike North Birmingham scheme. Full details are available on their web page.
So if you are in the city and want to get out and about, give one of these companies a call.
