The country park is an ideal place for cycling as it is situated at the mid-way point between Bridgnorth and Bewdley on the Mercian Way. The Mercian Way, part of the national cycle network runs through the park and beyond, allowing riders to enjoy miles of off-road tracks along the river Severn and through woods and meadows. It is a great way to see the spectacular Shropshire scenery away from the frenetic pace of everyday life.

 

Wolverley Bike Hire is a family run business which has a fleet of quality British designed hire bikes. The bikes are regularly safety checked and cleaned after every rental and included with each rental is a helmet, puncture repair kit, tyre levers and a pump. Bikes are available to be hired by prior arrangement by contacting www.wolverleybikehire.co.uk or 07891309783. The bikes will be delivered directly to the park and can be hired for a full day or half a day.

 

Visitor centre manager, Susie Comaish says, ‘cycling is an excellent way to keep fit. The team at Wolverley Bike Hire have a good cross section of bikes to rent, meaning all the family can enjoy a great day out together.’

 

Andrew Hackett from Wolverley Bike Hire says, ‘If visitors don’t have their own mountain bike or cannot spare the space in their car or camper, we can make cycling accessible by delivering our bikes directly to the country park to enable visitors to explore new places.’

 

The prices are: Adult bike £25.00 per day / £15.00 half day; children’s bike £18.00 per day / £10.00 half day. Rental period is from 9.00am until 5.00pm. 15% of each rental goes directly to help support the running of the country park.
