IMPORTANT HIRE INFORMATION
Please read and be familiar with our HIRE INFORMATION AND TERMS & CONDITIONS
PLEASE BRING PHOTO ID – We require photo ID (driving license or passport) to be left with us for the duration of the hire period. Without valid ID we are unable to offer rental.
Rental Period – Our rental period (full day hire) runs from 9 am until 4 pm. Our 3hr hire can be any 3 hours falling entirely within this period. Bikes returned late will be subject to a late return fee of £15.00 per 1/4 hour.
Cancellation – In the event of cancellation your hire date can be rescheduled or the hire fee refunded up to 14 days before the hire date. No changes can be made within 14 days of the hire date and no refund is offered.
Crash and Accidental Damage – Under the terms of our hire agreement, accident and/or crash damage is chargeable to the hirer. We offer an optional damage waiver, which covers the cost of equipment repair as a result of accident and crash damage during the hire period. If you choose not to purchase the waiver then you will be held responsible for the cost of any damage that may occur to the bike whilst it is in your possession. Please note that the waiver specifically does not cover: – Deliberate or reckless abuse. – Theft of the bike. – Damage occurring from incorrect adjustment of the bike by the hirer.
Beics Brenin reserves the right to terminate the hire agreement and take possession of hire bikes, without refund if, in the opinion of company staff, the bikes are being used in a reckless manner or being wilfully abused.
Helmets – These are compulsory and included in the bike hire price.
Under 16yrs – Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
eBikes – Children under 14 years are not permitted to use e-bikes. E-Bikes are provided with a full battery at the start of the session. We do not offer recharging or battery swaps during the day so it’s up to the rider to manage the battery by choosing the appropriate settings to ensure they have the required range to last the session. On longer rides (e.g. Dragon’s Back/Beast trails) this will mean using eco-mode for most of the ride.
Permitted area of use – Our bikes are for use in Coed Y Brenin forest only, for trail and XC use. Bikes may not be removed from the forest park. Bikes may not be used for competitive racing, shuttle access downhill riding or any other type of organised event.
Modifications – We do not permit the fitting of child seats, child trailers or ‘tag-along’ style children’s trailer bikes to any of our hire bikes. These items are not suited to use on many of the trails at Coed y Brenin. The fitting of stabilisers to our children’s hire bikes is also prohibited.
Pedals – All hardtail bikes come supplied with flat pedals. Full suspension bikes are supplied with flat pedals, or we can supply and fit Shimano SPD clipless pedals at a small rental charge. If you would like to use your own pedals, please let us know at the time of booking and bring them along. No extra charge will be incurred, but they must only be fitted by our staff.
