Bicycle Hire in the Colchester Area
Greater Anglia, the train operator, runs Bike and Go from Colchester and Manningtree railway stations (NB: Colchester's main station, not Colchester Town or Hythe). There is a £10 annual registration fee and a £3.80 daily charge.
You may also like to try coolpedals.co.uk in Langham, four miles north of Colchester and on the way to Constable Country, which will deliver and collect cycles across north Essex and south Suffolk for a reasonable extra fee.
Bicycle Doctor of Bartholomew Street, Ipswich, offers a similar service. They can also supply a mobile workshop for cycle tours and events and they're good for hard-to-find or obsolete bike parts. Kevin Ablitt, 01473 259853
Colchester Cycle Stores and other bike shops may offer cycles for hire. Ring up and ask!
