About us

Family-owned and family-run

We’ve made it our business to welcome anyone and everyone to the Forest Of Dean and help them get the most from their time here whether it’s coffee and cake, or bikes and trails.

Helping You To Get The Most From The Forest

Based in Parkend in the heart of the Forest of Dean, Dean Forest Cycles was established in 2011.

We love the Forest of Dean and we’re passionate about sharing it with you, whether you’re a regular to the area or just visiting to discover it for the first time.

Bikes, cakes, coffee... and so much more

First and foremost, we provide great quality bike hire for people of all ages, abilities and riding types. 

Alongside our bike hire we also love to keep you on two wheels, both through our fully-equipped workshop and well-stocked bike shop

We take pride in working with some of the best brands in cycling and have a huge range of parts and accessories, clothes and protective gear and plenty of new and used bikes. 

Everyone's welcome

But it’s not all about the bikes.

Dean Forest Cycles offers a great place to start and end your day, or to pop in for a coffee and a spot of lunch. Our cosy cafe serves locally sourced food and drink with plenty of homemade cakes, craft beers, hand-baked pastries, sandwiches, you name it.

For the summer we have a sun-trap picnic area and for the winter there’s the log burner. Whatever the weather or time of year, we’re here to welcome you, right in the heart of the forest.
