Pre booked 2 days befor. Before we arrived we got a text message giving us information. Unfortunately I was driving when received but reading it would have been helpful as there is another bike hire before it on the road but that was just timing. We were shown to a parking space and then organised quickly with bikes and helmets... More

We are very sorry to hear that you found our bikes of poor condition and as you didn't mention anything on your return we had no idea you felt this way. If we knew, we could of checked out the situation of the mountain bikes mentioned. Our bikes are all regularly serviced by Cytech qualified mechanics and renewed annually and... More

Pre-booked 2 adult bikes & a trailer over the phone and they were ready to pick up when we arrived. The free parking is great. The Padstow to Wadebridge leg of the Camel Trail is perfect for our 6 year old on his own bike - completely flat, lots to look at & plenty of places to stop for a... More

My wife and I hired bikes with our three young children. I thought the staff were really helpful, knowing what the most appropriate bikes/trailers were for the kids given their ages. The Camel Trail is close by and as we weren't going at any great speed, we easily got a full day of use from the bikes. As a result,... More

We hired 2 tandems and rode the 5.5 miles to Wadebridge. We were a bit worried about leaving our driving licence and credit card with them; just thrown in a drawer and at £60 for just 2 hours it was on the expensive side and no room for negotiation given that was the same price had the bikes been rented...

GFrostie, Owner at Camel Trail Cycle Hire, responded to this review

Hello, We believe your review is for the wrong bike hire. You hired in Padstow and we are based in Wadebridge. Our tandems are £28 for the day and we have an onsite carpark so we have no need to take a deposit as all of our customers come back for there cars. Please could you remove your review as... More

Rode to Padstow , had lunch at Rock, easy ride for families. Nice day out. Nice scenery. Prices for bikes are very reasonable. Free parking is a bonus.

Good handy site for doing the Camel Trail. To be honest the bikes could be serviced better but they got us to Bodmin and back. Lock, pump and repair kit included with hire but helmets are extra.

GFrostie, Owner at Camel Trail Cycle Hire, responded to this review

Hello, I think you might have confused us with another bike hire in Wadebridge as we do not supply puncture repair kits or pumps. We offer a breakdown service to every customer therefore it is not required. Helmets we do not charge for and never have. I hope you can see that it wasn't us you would have hired from... More

First time in Wadebridge and cycled both trails today 1/7/16. Bike hire was great. Phoned reserved before we left home yesterday and didn't need to pay until we picked bikes up. Very professional, efficient and friendly company. Easy to get to right by the start of the Padstow trail. Phone number on bike in case of any problems and a... More

We called to pre book our bikes, 4 adults and 2 trailers for the young 'uns. the free on-site parking is a massive perk...no worrying about how long we will be. Upon arrival our bikes were ready to roll. You only need to cross the road and you're on the trail. There is a Lidl there also if you want... More

Camel trail hire allows you to hire bikes for the 5 mile trip to Padstow along the old railway line, that John Betjeman wrote about as he spent a lot of time around Trebetherick and had a house on Daymer Bay Lane. As it's an old railway line it's nice and flat and easy for all ages, with little buggies... More
