We understand that the Hire a Bike scheme is no longer operating.


Blackpool is world famous for fresh air and fun and what better way to experience it than by bike. Whether you fancy a ride along the fantastic new Promenade enjoying the sea air and the public art at the south end, or a cycle to the wonderfully restored Stanley Park, you can enjoy exploring all of Blackpool by bike.

Even if you’d rather not bring your own bike on holiday you can still bike it around Blackpool on one of our 500 hire bikes which you can pick up from any of the 70 hire a bike stations across the town.

  2. Use a debit or credit card to set up your membership for just £7 per bike giving you 6 hours of cycling to explore the coast and beyond.
  3. Input the membership code and pin number you are given into the keypad of the bike station and your chosen bike will be released.

  5. Your bikes can be returned to any station making it easy to access all of Blackpool’s many attractions by bike.
