We provide the use of helmets free of charge with all bike hires.
To hire a bike, you will need to leave valid photo ID (e.g. driving license) and a credit/debit card for security while you ride. Damage to our bikes while in your custody will need to be paid for with parts 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 or size to buy, you can try a variety of options to get a feel for which one suits you best. As we are at the centre of the trail network, you can experience the bike over a variety of terrain, giving you the best possible test ground.
The question we get asked most is; 29" or 27.5". Every rider is different, so you should experience both wheel sizes to be sure which one works best for you.
With all the bikes now available on the market, we advise you to try-before-you-buy, just as you would when test driving a new car. If you 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!
Our hire fleet is kept in excellent working order by our team of qualified bike mechanics. They are pre-loved but are in top riding condition. If you loved your hire bike, speak to us about buying it and take it home! If you're looking for a pre-loved bargain, you can hire a bike and try it out on the trails first. We'll even knock off the cost of your hire session from the price of the bike.
