Honestly couldn't recommend more!

Bike itself was fab, all safety gear provided including lights too.

Staff were absolutely wonderful and so friendly.

Great recommendations for the route and for places to eat given.

Also super easy extending my hire when I decided last minute. (With a discount also given for 2 days)

Absolutely fabulous!

Excellent service, fantastic bikes, beautiful route
Fantastic service. The staff were extremely knowledgeable about the area and helped us with all our questions. They set up the bikes for us up to our height as well. Bikes were super sturdy, clean, well maintained. Had a great time and 100% use Ticket to Ride again. Thank you!

Thanks for the great review. I'm looking forward to getting out on the bike more myself soon, albeit in the colder, wetter, darker months. Enjoyed some great rides last winter though on clear, bright days. We close November to March. Lets hope the pandemic is more under control by then. See you again next year I hope.

Delightful experience cycling in the highlands
Aug. 2021 • Couples
Had a fantastic trip last week cycling from Inverness to Loch Ness. Ticket to ride were brilliant - the bikes were in great condition and we were given very clear and easy directions to follow. Next time we’re in the highlands we would definitely rent again. Thank you so much!

Bike hire Inverness
Aug. 2021 • Friends
We hired bikes from Ticket to Ride and cycled from Inverness down to Dores on Loch Ness. It was a lovely ride and not too arduous. We ate our picnic on the beach there. The bikes were great - they seemed new and well maintained.

Ha, exactly! If you hire a bike from us and it meets your expectation I call that a "win". Thanks for the 5 stars and 100 chars.

Great cycling around Inverness
Aug. 2021
Amazing Trek bikes!! Very easy booking process. Easy to read maps provided. A great day out with our 3 children (15, 13 and 10) - the Loch Ness ride to Dores is fab! As is the cycle along the Caledonian Canal - we managed both!

Thanks Charlotte for you kind review. We are in a great position here in the park for access to the routes and ideal for family trips and achieving both the Loch Ness trip and the Canal is superb and well done to all. Glad you liked the bikes, we keep the fleet fresh with yearly replacement and regular checks after each ride. All the best and thanks again for taking the time for the review. Hope to see you all again.

Great day out with the bike
Aug. 2021 • Solo
Had a wet but invigorating cycle to Dores Beach on a road bike, before going around town and along the Caledonian canal. It was great to have the advice of the team at Ticket to Ride - who made sure I was kitted out and talked me through a route. Next time, I hope to make it to Culloden!

Great experience, great day
Jul. 2021
We had an amazing experience with Ticket to Ride bike hire. The whole process of booking was very easy, and the communication throughout the process effortless and clear. We knew everything we needed before arriving to collect our bikes. Bikes were in an excellent condition, we also received a map and a bit of advice which we appreciated. We enjoyed our day and we would always hire bikes from these guys again. Recommended to everyone visiting Inverness.

Tour of Loch Ness
Had chat on phone and with the benefit of their local knowledge quickly had a route around Loch Ness planned and mountain bikes etc booked. On arrival everything was ready and we were on our way with friendly efficiency.

Great Day Out
Jul. 2021
We only had time for a short trip along the canal, but throughly recommend it as a way of spending time when in Inverness. Plenty of routes to choose from for the keen cyclists, or more leisurely flat touring along the wide canal banks. Great bikes, very throughly cleaned and maintained and super helpful staff. I would definitely use Ticket to Ride again for longer rides when time permits.
