Cycling is the perfect way to explore Sefton and West Lancashire so why not hire a bike and take the opportunity to visit the many wonderful places in and around the area.
We now have several hire centres around the borough, all managed in conjunction with Hourbike Ltd. The centres are a combination of both cycle hire shops and automated cycle hire stations.
We currently have cycle hire centres operating from two centres in Southport and one in Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre. These centres hold a selection of different bikes and provide bikes for all the family.
Our automated cycle hire stations hold adult bikes only however these can be accessed 24hrs a day, 7 days a week (some are seasonal only - please see details)
We also do group hire so if you are holding an event and would like to hire some bikes, please complete our contact form. We would be happy to help and can also arrange for bikes to be dropped off and collected.
Many of the area's landmarks are included in themed cycle routes which are ideal for families and less experienced cyclists. There are now 13 themed routes for you to choose from ranging from 3 miles to 10 miles. The routes have been carefully selected, are well sign posted and are mostly off road. The routes are available to download from our themed cycle routes page or flyers can be collected at our cycle hire centres and tourist information offices.
