Bicycle Hire

Two wheels and the freedom of a whole island...

With miles of quiet roads and dusty tracks to explore, what better way to explore Tresco than by bicycle?

Whether you're staying on the island or just visiting for the day, pop and see Graham in our bike hire shop, located next to Tresco Stores, pick up your noble steed and head off under pedal power...

We stock as many bicycles as we are able to and strongly recommend pre-booking, although please note this does not guarantee availability. Day visitors are unable to pre-book bicycles during the school holidays.
