All the bikes are regularly maintained and inspected prior to each hiring as the safety of the client is paramount. It is the hirer’s responsibility to double check the bike and report any damage prior to setting off. On return a representative of Hall Farm Dadlington will examine the bikes/equipment and if there is no damage or loss will confirm the cancellation of any credit card deposit taken. If for any reason a full inspection cannot be undertaken on their return, Hall Farm Dadlington reserves the right to inform clients within seven days of the return of any damage found and invoice the hirer accordingly. Inner tubes supplied with the hire bikes will be charged at the recommended retail price if used or missing.

If you wish to transport the hire bikes to another location, this can only be done in a van, estate car or via a correctly rated mounted bike rack. If the wheels are removed, this is entirely at the hirer’s risk. Should any damage to the bike occur such as scratches to the frame and decals or any other damage, the hirer will be responsible for repairs as quoted by Hall Farm Dadlington.

Children under 18 years must be accompanied by a riding adult at all times.

Road and hybrid bikes must not be used on mountain bike trails.
