Our Cycle Centres

Our Cycle Centres are in Partnership with Forme Bikes

Grounds Cycle Centres

Grounds Cycle Centre grew from our passion for bikes and the opportunity provided by the forest and parkland our cafés are located in.  Surrounded by trails and beautiful road routes,  providing bike hire is the perfect complement to our sites.  Starting at Hicks Lodge in 2016, we have now opened a Cycle Centre at Fineshade Wood and this year we open at Milton Country Park.  Each site has its own unique characteristics, but at its core is a focus on family bike hire, to take advantage of the graded traffic free trails woven around the cafés.

Hire a bike from just £9 for an hour, £13.50 for two hours or £17.50 for 3 hours. For more adventure and a full day of hire, please ask at the site.

With families in mind we have children’s bikes, tagalongs, & trailers individually available for £5 per hour, so all the family can enjoy a day in the great outdoors.  Helmets are provided free of charge.(Please note – tagalongs, seats and buggies cannot be attached to customers’ own bikes).

Grounds Cycle Centre – Bike Hire and Sales

We work in partnership with Forme, a growing UK brand, who supply our hire fleet of mountain bikes and a number of fantastic demo road, gravel, and e-bikes.  As well as being able to provide fantastic deals to our customers on ex-hire fleet bikes, we are also a retailer for Forme, and other brands, and are able to provide upgrades and custom builds. The nature of our locations mean you can properly try bikes before you buy and enjoy some fantastic coffee and refreshments while you decide.

As designated Experience Centres for Forme, we can offer demos on bikes in stock.  Try and e-bike, gravel bike or mountain bike, on the traffic free and graded trails that surround our sites.

Grounds Cycle Centres – Working with Forme

Choosing to partner with Forme Bikes was a natural step as we look to support British Suppliers and Manufacturers where possible.  Forme’s range of bikes fits the wide variety of needs our customers have – mountain bikers, road cyclists, commuters, families.

Grounds Cycle Centres – Workshop

We have different tiers of service and repair pricing, starting from £30 for a basic service. Premium service upgrades are available as add on; have a look at our service menu for details.  Our workshops are open every day, and staff can assist you with punctures, gear tune ups and any other minor technical niggles you may have.  Book in your bike, or if the workshop has availability, relax and  enjoy some great coffee, before you get on your way.

Working with Forme we can offer upgrades and custom-built bikes. Please come in and have a chat with a member of staff and see if we can help you build the bike of your dreams.
