Hire Terms & Conditions

2. The minimum age for hiring a bike is 16 years, under which the presence of an adult will be necessary to assume all responsibilities.

3. All of our bikes are safety checked before hand over so no responsibility will be accepted by “Go Further Cycling” for loss, damage, or injury to the hirer, fellow riders, or third party, occurring during the hire period.

4. In the event of any mechanical breakdown “Go Further Cycling” can only recover bikes. Refunds will only be considered for mechanical breakdowns occurring in the first hour of the hire period*. Thereafter each rider is deemed to be completely satisfied that his or her bike and accessories are fit for purpose.

5. While cycling off road, please keep to public rights-of-way where cycling is permitted and exercise due care to all other users. When using public highways riders must observe the Highway Code.
