  2. All hire bikes include use of lights and a strong lock within the hire costs. Choosing not use any of these safety items is entirely at your own risk. Please ask a member of staff if you are not entirely sure how to use the lock as incorrect use can lead to loss of the equipment.

  3. A “day rate” for hire is normally anytime between the hours of 10am until 10:30am the next day though we can make discretionary exceptions. The minimum chargeable hire length is one day.

  4. The Hirer will be liable for the retail price of the bicycle and accessories up to the following limits if the bicycle is stolen (less hire charges paid for that particular bike and acceptable depreciation:
    City bike (BHx) £250 , Deluxe bike (Hxx) £450

  5. A credit card pre-authorization covering the value of bike(s) hired will be made, it will be released when the bike(s) and/or equipment is returned in satisfactory condition (cash or PayPal deposit covering full retail price of the hired equipment is also accepted).

  6. The Hirer will be responsible for puncture repairs (puncture resistant tyres fitted to our deluxe range as standard). If the bike is brought to us for puncture repair we will waive our labour charges, asking £5 for the tube only. Puncture repairs are ready for collection usually within 20 minutes unless we are super busy.

  7. The Hirer will be expected to keep the bicycle clean, in case of long term hire it is highly recommended to bring the bike every 2 weeks for maintenance which will be carried out with the highest priority. In the event of the bicycle not operating correctly the Hirer is expected to return the bicycle to Cycloanalysts for remedial work to be carried out as top priority job.
