    Hired a tandom bike the other day from R57.
    My girlfriend and I had so much fun cycling around on the Red Squirrel Trail stopping for refreshments where possible – and then along Shanklin sea-front making a nuisance of ourselves!! Would definitely do it again!
    Thank you so much for you kind advice and service.

    Excellent service, lovely staff, great value for money and amazing trails! We did the squirrel trail and it was great. I would not hesitate to get bikes here again. Thanks, Jill and family

    Great for bike hire, well situated for local trails and also if you want to cycle across the island. Gave us invaluable advice. Great selection of bikes and helped tailor bikes to our needs. Really friendly service. Would highly recommend. We will be back.

    Fantastic bike hire from Routefifty7. Really informative about the red squirrel trail, what to see and where to stop. Friendly approach and easy to get kitted out, especially as we had a 3 year old. Can’t recommend it enough and the scenery on the trail is amazing. Get riding and use Routefifty7 in Shanklin, if you are going to.

    Brilliant service, staff tremendously helpful and really friendly. Great advice too. As a family, we really enjoyed our morning of cycling. Young daughter had a trailer that was fitted to the bike at the time. Will definitely make use of this service again – good value too.
