"The best, most friendly, helpful and informative customer service I’ve ever had from a bike hire outlet. Sorted us out quickly, and with real care for my kids’ experience. We will definitely be back for more. Thanks."

Gareth Herring, Helston Boating Lake to Penrose, 14 October 2018

Paul Day, Derby, 17 August 2018

"Our second visit to Porthleven Cycle Hire. Super friendly service, great bikes and a fabulous time cycling around Penrose. Thank you! "

Alison Reynolds, Wolverhampton, 14 August 2018

"Excellent service! Darren had four bikes for our family at very short notice of various age/sizes all in great condition and set us off for a great day. My youngest did encounter a puncture which we were unable to repair so a quick call and Darren arrived and replaced the inner tube - what service!! He is such a gent and nothing was to much trouble. Would definitely recommend. Many thanks again."

Brian Hancock, Christchurch, Dorset, 09 August 2018

"What a great day out. The bikes were great, well maintained and the service we received was excellent and the kids loved the Wehoo trailers. Stopped off for a picnic at the Stables cafe on the national trust before we set off to spend the rest of the day in Porthleven. Porthleven cycle hire is truly a cornish gem and thoroughly recommend."

Ash and Sarah Smedley, Fulham, 28 May 2018

"We hired from these guys twice this year, and received excellent service on both occasions. We had the bikes delivered to our holiday home in Helford which is handy as we didn't want to bring our bikes all the way down from London. On another note, we forgot our girls scooters... which Darren arranged a couple for us to have the very next day. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys and look forward to hiring from them again next year!"

James Allington, London, 29 October 2017

"Excellent service - superb quality of bikes, delivered to St Ives for the week, and collected at the end of our stay. Would highly recommend. "

Louise Hymer, Stourbridge, 23 July 2017

"Darren was very helpful and such a friendly guy. We were supplied with everything from a helmet to an inner tube, should the worst happen on our adventures round Penrose. We would highly reccomend hiring bikes from here!"

Eva & Josh, Salisbury, 21 April 2017

"Thanks to Darren and the team. Great location for a bike rental, beautiful scenery in Penrose and Porthleven and top quality service - thanks for the trailer puncture rescue! See you next time!"

Ed & Becky, Warwick, 27 August 2016

"Excellent company. Really friendly, helpful service. Gave advice and dropped off a cycling map of Cornwall along with the bike. All equipment provided including spare inner tubes,pumps, levers etc. I cycled about a hundred miles over 4 days - Cornwall is a beautiful place to cycle - bit hilly in parts but all part of the challenge! On one of the days we cycled the Camel trail in Padstow - the company allowed me to swap to a hybrid which was more fit for purpose. All in all, highly recommended."

Richard Kelley, Porthleven, 18 August 2016

"We hired two bikes last week and received excellent service. Our bikes were adjusted for us as needed and we had routes suggested for us which turned out to be brilliant. The bikes were also in great condition. Would highly recommend "

"A big thank you to Rob for his excellent customer service, bike knowledge and enthusiasm. We hired 3 bikes and a Weehoo and had a great family ride around Loe Pool to the cliff top overlooking Porthleven. We have hired bikes from many places and Rob at Porthleven Cycle Hire provided the best service we have ever experienced. Thank you!"

Ian Killick, Crewkerne, Somerset, 06 August 2016

Alan Greenwood, Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire, 06 July 2014

"Dave, Chris and team simply make you feel special, and part of the cycle family with the personal service offered .Why bother bringing your own bike when you can hire decent kit at great value .... My first experience at getting back in the saddle after years was down to them, I'm now proud to say I am hooked - thanks for helping me find my passion again ! "

Jonathan Tillery, London , 08 May 2014

"I am grateful for the recommendation of Porthleven Cycles who, at very short notice and during the seasonally busy Easter period provided exemplary service at fantastic value. Dave provided great bikes, for me and 3 teenagers with helmets, help with individual sizing, information sheets and some recommended tours. Nothing was too much trouble. Patience with a smile comes standard. He even collected the bikes at the end of our stay. As a keen London based cyclist I cannot recommend Porthleven Cycles highly enough. Have a great ride! "

Anthony Casingena, London, 26 February 2014

"Excellent service, great bikes and fun family trails. Highly recommended!"
