With a fleet of over 60 Giant cycles, we offer the best value cycle-hire for groups on the Granite Way and possibly in Devon. We can provide guides to take you over the permitted cycle routes around Okehampton, to cycle trails in Abbeyford Wood or onto Dartmoor, so whether you are looking for an afternoon's entertainment on easy cycling terrain or a tough day session on more challenging terrain, then contact our Activities Department for more information.




For Family Groups

We have a mix of cycles, from Adult sizes through to Junior cycles.  We offer a  range of additional equipment for youngsters, including Tag-a-long trailers and Child-seats.

For Groups under 12

We have a large number of Junior cycles to cater for school and youth groups starting to enjoy cycling. We recommend that they start with a basic skills session in the car-park, so that we can identify young people who haven't cycled much before. The group would then be divided into those of different abilities, so that the routes chosen.

For Groups

We can accommodate coach parties seeking a cycling session on the Granite Way, or more advanced type of an event, such as a Mountain Bike challenge. For the latter, we need some advance notice, as those routes that use Dartmoor National Park, will need to be cleared in advance with the Park Authorities.

Discounts for Groups

For Cycle Hire for large groups we may offer a discount on our published rates.
