Bike Hebrides was started by two keen Island cyclists wanting to share the fun with visitors and locals alike. In that time many happy customers have taken to the trails and single track without incurring extra costs on the ferry or risking their own equipment on the journey to and from the Islands.


The company changed hands and moved to Uig, where it was run by another keen cyclist and outdoor enthusiast, who brought an amphibious touch to the company and introduced sit on top kayaks to the fleet.


Bike Hebrides was merged with Bike and Hike Hebrides, a company with the same vision of sharing the fun and adventures that our wonderful Islands have to offer, which is based in the main town of Stornoway.


We now offer bike hire to cater for what ever kind of adventure you plan, whether it be a day out on the many trails or a scenic tour though out the islands where many historic attractions can be seen. We also supply sit on top kayaks which can be used around Stornoway harbour.
