Bike hire made easy

Tim (LH 87) and Suzy Seddon (Fd 90)  have set-up a mobile app-based bike hire business at venues across Kent & East Sussex called 'Countrybike'.

The goal is to make bike hire more accessible to more people in the countryside and in turn, support local rural businesses and get people (and families) into cycling. So far 10 venues supply the bikes, ranging from local tourist attractions such as castles, through to farm shops and village pubs close to off-road cycle routes.

The business if getting a great reception and coverage in the local press and BBC radio channels for Kent & Sussex and Tim and Suzy are set to expand further as with more and more venues want to host their bikes in the local area and beyond.

If anyone can recommend any venues or knows of any places crying out for bike hire, then they would be keen to hear from you, email
