    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 is your friend. Trybaintonbikes in Oxford. it's just up the road from Henley, they have Dawes road bikes as well as all the other stuff...
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    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
