Every aspect of our booking with Mr Spokes proprietors, Jillian and Martin, was a breeze.

From the initial contact through to urgent changes required to our booking, and including preparing the group for their ride, Jillian and Martin could not have been more accommodating and re-assuring!

The bikes are well maintained and presented. Helmets are included in the hire cost. Martin was on hand to lead each group. With safety and enjoyment heavily emphasised, everyone was able to take full advantage of the ride to appreciate the sights and get some healthy exercise in great company!

Our bike riding adventure was a universal hit, and we will certainly be making this a standard booking in all future trips. Thank you to Jillian and Martin!

Thank you to Jillian and Martin!
