Tandem Hire List

This list probably only scratches the surface. It does not include any reference to either the hire charges or the availability of tandems. You will have to check such details yourself by getting in touch with the hirer.

Remember that a deposit is usually required. Some hirers need to know the inside leg measurement of both captain and stoker to ensure that they have a machine in stock which you can actually ride. Shops normally are not open on Sundays and one afternoon a week, so you will need to make hiring arrangements for these days in advance.

Notes:
One company in Lancashire specialises in hiring triplets.
One Charity based in Gloucestershire, with outposts throughout the UK, has a free scheme for disabled stokers.

The Internet web site has been included where known. E-mail addresses have been included where known, but not if the web site is quoted.

If you notice any errors in this information or changes that are required, please send an email to so that they can adjust the information shown.
