Bike hire/loan near Henley during Henley Royal Regatta
 
Dear All,

I will be in the UK for the Henley rowing events but as I am the coach there will be a fair bit of down time between arrival, the qualifying races and the main regatta itself.

I'd like to do some riding in this time but I'm not really sure I can manage to bring my regular bike with me (too much other stuff to cart for the regatta). I will be staying in Henley, but could possibly arrange a London pick up on my way through.

Does anyone know where I might hire a bike for a couple of weeks, or know anyone who might have one spare?

Road bike, 55cm top tube (or thereabouts), Shimano or SRAM equipped. I can bring pedals if needed (Look).

Thanks,
Jonny

Google only tells you so much and a lot of bike shop websites are pretty poor - local knowledge is golden.

I'll add these folks to my list. Thank you.

Hi Johnny

I just saw this post. Henley is my hometown. Lived there for 15 years. Anything you need or need help with, let me know including info on bikes... Might be a bit late now though
