Dean Forest Cycles

We are an award winning family owned and run cycle hire centre.

Based in the small, attractive village of Parkend in the heart of the Forest of Dean, Dean Forest Cycles was established in 2011. Our aim is to provide the best quality bike hire for all ages, abilities and types of riding, perfectly suited to everyone from the whole family to the seasoned racer. Alongside the cycle hire we work hard to ensure we cater for both locals and tourists, whether out and about on two wheels or two feet. To accompany this we strive to provide fantastic cafe facilities with the best coffee and cake for miles around. As well as a fully stocked bike shop & workshop combining the best brands and best prices to ensure we always have what you need.
