With miles of quiet roads and empty lanes to explore, what better way to explore Tresco than by bike?
Another unexpected result of these strange times we're living through is a global shortage of bicycles! This has been caused by a perfect storm of surging demand during the pandemic and supply shortages due to raw material scarcities, factory shutdowns and global freight capacity.
As a result, and despite our best efforts over many months, we have been unable to source the 100 new bikes we would usually purchase annually to update our hire stock.
Graham in The Bike Shed is working hard to maintain our existing stock of bikes and ensure we can fulfil the hire requests made for the summer. However, we apologise if we cannot supply bikes for the entire duration of your holiday, or if your bikes are not up to our usual high standards.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept advance hire requests from those visiting the island for the day.
Whether you're staying on the island or just visiting for the day, pop and see Graham in our bike hire shop next to Tresco Stores to collect your bike and head off for an island exploration.
