Bike Hire

Bike Hebrides is our bike hire operator offering a large fleet of hybrids and e-bikes. 

E-bikes have become a real enabler for those who enjoy the activity of cycling and require some pedal assistance for the hills and inclines, wind or want to go longer distances.  

Our bikes are available for one day hire or multiple days. They come with a helmet, basic toolkit, spare inner tube, lock and pump. We also provide panniers.

You can collect your bike from our shops in Stornoway and Balivanich. Or have our transfer service drop off your bikes at any destination in the Outer Hebrides.
