Bike Hire for Dartmoor

Mountain bikes are available to hire from the Tamar Trails to take onto Dartmoor, or surrounding area.

Here at the Tamar Trails we have direct access onto 25km’s of car free woodland trails to explore, however if you want to explore other areas including Dartmoor now you can hire our bikes and take them away.

At the Tamar Trails there are various trails for mountain bikers to choose from depending on requirements and ability. Consisting in the most part of gentle, compacted stone tracks with a few steeper gradients, much of the terrain is perfectly suited to mixed ability groups and families, with a few options for longer and more challenging rides. What’s more, the trails are free to use and open all year round. Download a map here.

If you want to book our bikes to hire, or just want further information please give us a ring on 01822833409. Details of costs can be found here.

Tamar Trails is 20mins by car from Dartmoor, 10 mins from Tavistock and 30 mins from Plymouth.

Details of cycling on Dartmoor can be found here at the Dartmoor National Park website But two of our favourite routes include:

Granite Way
This is an 11 mile (18 km) multi-use trail running between Okehampton and Lydford along the north western edge of Dartmoor. It is mostly traffic free, largely following the course of the former Southern Region railway line. A journey along the Granite Way offers fantastic views of the granite landscape of Dartmoor, as well as a number of specific sites of geological interest.

Drake’s Trail
This is a 21 mile cycling and walking route linking Tavistock with Plymouth, using the National Cycle Network (NCN) Route 27. The route runs through superb countryside with attractive scenery along the western edge of Dartmoor together with much historical and heritage interest.
