Cyclexperience has a Cycle Hire Shop in the New Forest with a difference. It stocks nearly 200 models of cycles and does look as if they have something for everyone. Their fleet includes various adult and children cycles, tag alongs, Kidkabs, DogKabs and child seats (9 months+ and up to 22 kg). These are all charged at a daily rate, including an electric cycle £25 a day.
It also has a range of inclusive bikes for both children and adults, including handcycles and semi-recumbent tricycles with back support. A standard 2-adult tandem is available, as well as an adult-and-child-tandem and a side-by-side tandem – the Cheetah. The Draisin plus, a bike-and-wheelchair tandem is also available for hire. Their rates are very reasonable at £4 per hour for adaptive single person cycles and £7 per hour for tandems.
The Cyclexperience Hire Centre is situated in the Southside Car Park at Brockenhurst Rail Station, Brockenhurst, Hampshire, SO42 7TW, United Kingdom.
The New Forest offers plenty of cycling opportunities, but the reason Cyclexperience chose Brockenhurst as their base is for the large selection of “flat, safe traffic-free New Forest trails” in the surrounding area.
Inclusive cycling sessions
New Forest Inclusive Cycling offers 2-hour cycling sessions for groups on adaptive cycles in the New Forest. The fleet of adaptive cycles available from Cyclexperience include recumbent cycles, tricycles, tandems, wheelchair cycles, hand cycles and mountain bikes.
The sessions are for “people with a physical or intellectual disability, a visible or unseen condition or health diagnosis who would benefit from the associated benefits to mental and physical wellbeing that cycling provides.” Family members are welcomed and actively encouraged to join in, making this a great opportunity to be active outdoors with loved ones.
