Would highly recommend Forest Leisure. My wife and I took our 7 month old along (16.05.2017) and wanted to hire two adult bikes and a trailer thingy for the little 'un for his first biking adventure. They could not have been more helpful. The equipment was great and they showed us a variety of routes. Will definitely use them again... More

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to give us this great feedback. The trailer buggies often prove a wise choice when cycling with little ones, making the journey that little bit easier. We hope you again soon! Jon (Co-Owner) More

My little family decided to go for a morning bike ride, Googled companies in the area and chose this lot because their website is simple and easy to use. We were not disappointed. Within ten minutes of arriving, my wife, toddler and I were saddled up and ready to go. I would definitely recommend these guys if you are looking... More

Great location and friendly staff. We rented our cycles and rode towards Lyndhurst when one of my friends got severe cramps in both legs. He couldn't cycle back and we were too far away to make it back on time. I called the Forest Leisure cycling team and they were very helpful. They drove down to pick up my friend... More

We all hired bikes and cycled as many local trails as we could in the day. Surprised not to see more cyclists. Definitely going again!

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to review us. It's not possible to ride all of the routes in one day (although many have tried) but it's always pleasing to hear that someone enjoyed as much of the forest trails as possible. We hope to see you back soon to ride the rest of our routes! Many thanks, Jon... More

The first thing to remember is that if you are travelling to Burley in a car with your family remember to bring cash with you. As a Londoner we've gotten used to carrying just cards and assumed you can pay for parking with a card, YOU CAN'T!!. We arrived at the carpark behind the cycle hire shop only to be... More
