We provide the use of helmets free of charge with all hires. To hire a bike, you will need to leave valid photo ID (e.g. driving license) and a credit/debit card for security whilst you ride. Damage to our bike/s whilst in your custody will need to be paid for, but as we don't aim to make any profit from this, parts are charged at cost and labour at our standard rate.

Demo Full Suspension Options - £75 for 3 hours
Here at the Afan Valley Bike Shed we offer the opportunity to Demo our Whyte and Orange Bikes.
If you are unsure of which model to buy, this means you can try a variety of options to really get to feel which one suits you best. As we are at the head of the trails you can experience the bikes over similar terrain to that you expect to ride on your new bike.
The question we get asked most is 29" or 27.5". Every rider is different so you really need to experience both to be sure which will work best for you and so give you the most satisfaction from your riding. We can help you answer that question for yourself.
With all the bikes now available on the market, we advise you to try before you buy. You wouldn't buy a car without trying it first so treat your bike buying process the same way. Only then can you be sure you've bought the right bike for you.
If you then go on to purchase your bike from us, we'll credit your demo payment against the price of the bike so you can't lose!
