Bike Hire at The Cycle Hub

We have a range of bikes available for short term hire, from townie cruiser style bikes to road bikes, kids bikes, trailers and even tandems! Whether you are looking to spend a couple of hours taking in the sites along the famous NewcastleGateshead Quayside, or want to explore the local Ouseburn Valley or planning a multi-day touring trip on one of the many superb cycle-ways in the area we will have a bike to suit. In addition, to our adult hire bike fleet we also have children’s bikes, child trailers, child seats and tag-alongs.

Prices start from just £10 for 2 hours and a cycle helmet is inclusive with any hire. The Cycle Hub strongly recommends that everyone wears a helmet whilst cycling; you will be offered a helmet for use when hiring our bikes.  For longer hires; we  can also provide a spare inner tube, puncture repair kit and tyre levers, multi-tool, pump and lightweight pannier bags. Waterproof pannier bags are available for hire on request, should you be heading further afield.

Pre-booking is recommended for all hires over 24hours and during peak season. If you would like to hire a bike then call our workshop on 0191 2767250 or email hires@thecyclehub.org to book.

If you are looking to hire the road bikes or tandems then pre-booking is essential even if for a short hire.

PLEASE NOTE: For any multi-day hires, we are unable to offer any “call-out” or roadside support for mechanical breakdowns/crashes. It is expected that you are able to ride a bicycle competently and are able to repair a puncture, re-ship a dropped chain and make minor adjustments to seat post height etc. where needed. And that you ensure you have taken adequate precautions to ensure your safety. Refer to our hire Terms & Conditions for more information.
