Great, quick and informative service.

Hired bicycles and took the crab and winkle route. A very beautiful and scenic ride. Helmets, maps, locks and a map describing multiple routes. Although we just rode to Canterbury and back. Took the advice and left the bikes in Canterbury whilst we had a wander around Canterbury. The shop was only a 1 minute walk to the town centre. We hired from Whitstable on a Saturday. The perfect visit.

They really care about their customers!

My son and I hired bikes for the day. Bernard and the team made sure we had the right bikes, spent ages sorting helmets for the 7 year old's big head. Took time to take routes etc despite being busy. Nothing was too much trouble. Sent us happily on our way. We ran into trouble at Herne Bay when my son's front brake became detached and we struggled with the lock. 7 yo son in tears as he thought our trip was doomed. Bernard there in a flash and patiently sorted us out and we carried on, disaster averted. Highly recommended.

we booked online before arrival. our bikes were really good. we were provided with maps, locks and helmets. we were a bit apprehensive about the route as we hadn't done a bike ride for some time. however, we needn't of worried. we went from whitstable to reculver in approximately 1.1/2 hours. it was a brilliant route along the promenade with only a couple of hilly parts at the end (we walked these). this ride literally made my weekend- I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Herne bay was a lovely pitstop for an ice cream and a walk up the pier. I cannot recommend this highly enough I would happily go back to whitstable every week just to do this ride.

Great way to see the countryside.

We hired bikes online in the evening for the next day. Website was easy to use and instructions to find them were great. Good choice of bikes as I am on the short side and it fitted well. Had to adjust the saddle once we started but the tool to do this was supplied along with inner tube and pump, detailed map, sturdy locks and helmets if you needed one (we had our own). They made sure we understood where to go to join the Crab and Winkle Way. Great route off road with a few hills all the way to the seaside. Then you can ride along to Reculver (we got as far as Herne Bay). Cycled back and dropped the bikes off.

Absolutely fantastic service

We used these guys over the weekend and found their service outstanding. Very easy to book, quick fitting and off we went. The guys at the shop in Whitstable told us all the best routes to take and which way to avoid the wind... High quality bikes and we especially appreciated the extra comfy seats. Thank you and we will be back soon with all our friends.
