Plymouth Bike Hire

Welcome to Plymouth, there is no better way to enjoy the City’s amazing waterfront than by bike, there are hidden gems crammed into every corner along the miles of coast. From D-day to Drake, Founding Fathers to flying boats and Bootnecks to breakwaters – this place has it all.

If history isn’t your thing just enjoy the amazing views, stop wherever you like, no need to worry about parking you can just pull over and soak up the view or sample the multitude of cafes and restaurants. If you fancy a longer adventure you can catch the Cremyll ferry to explore East Cornwall or head North towards Dartmoor on the spectacular Plym Valley trail. Wherever you choose to pedal, Rockets and Rascals will sort you out with a great bike and friendly local advice to help you make the most of your day. At Rockets & Rascals we have spent years riding bikes around Plymouth and for our hire fleet we took our time to select the perfect bikes for exploring the area.

Our bikes feature lightweight alloy frames, easy to use gears and comfortable saddles and handlebars. They also feature puncture resistant tyres, mudguards and decent quality brakes so you can feel relaxed and safe, even in bad weather. Every single bike in our fleet is fully checked before each hire, in the unlikely event of a problem we’re always at the end of the phone to assist.
