Off-road and traffic free cycling in the heart of the beautiful Forest of Dean.  

Here at Pedalabikeaway, we have a wide range of hire bikes for all ages and abilities, from learner cyclists to full on downhill racers and everything in between!  This includes tagalongs and trailers for those little rippers (we even have a doggy trailer!), tandems, and a great selection of leisure and mountain bikes for both kids and adults. 

All the cycling trails depart from our doorstep - from the scenic 10-mile, traffic-free Family Trail, to the more challenging Verderers' and Freeminers cross-country trails and a wide range of enduro and downhill tracks - there is literally riding for everyone!  Not only that, but just a stones throw from the café, we have a large skills area that is suitable for beginners right up to the most advanced of riders. 

Our fantastic, fully accessible riders’ cafe with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, serves freshly cooked food, snacks and great coffees.  We welcome muddy bikers, walkers, kids and dogs – come and warm up in front of the fire with a mug of tea and one of our legendary cakes, or bask in the sunshine at one of our picnic benches and enjoy a locally sourced Wild Boar Burger washed down by our very own Sheepskull Cider! 

We offer a comprehensive selection of coaching and guiding around the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley, from 1-2-1, group and bespoke sessions, all delivered by hugely experienced British Cycling qualified coaches and guides. 

The bike shop carries a huge range of biking clothing, helmets and accessories and our kids cycling section is one of, if not the, largest selection in the UK. 

There are toilets (including a Changing Places toilet room), showers, baby changing station and bike wash, there is ample parking suitable for vans and motorhomes that is a Forestry Commission pay and display. 

So what are you waiting for?  Come grab one of our hire bikes and have a fantastic day out exploring the Royal Forest of Dean!
