Mapes Cycle Hire and Toy Shop
MAPES IS THE FIRST BIKE SHOP WHEN YOU ARRIVE IN MILLPORT
...so why not make us your first stop on the Island!
The Isle of Cumbrae is often referred to as the "Bicycle Island" as there are so many bikes of all shapes and sizes available for hire. The Isle of Cumbrae is a cyclist's paradise. The road around the island is almost completely flat and an easy route for all the family. As well as several cafes in the town of Millport, Fintry Bay Tearoom on the west side of the Island provides the perfect refreshment stop.
We are right in the centre of town, opposite the Crazy Golf and the Flagpole, so it is easy to find us and we are open seven days a week.
Just call in and hire any of our wide range of bikes to suit all ages and abilities. From one hour at only £2.50 to a full day for £5.20. A normal time for 'Round the Island' is 1.5 hours for which we do a special rate of £3.30 per single cycle. Our rates also encompass weekend and weekly hires. Our hire fleet of over 400 bikes is maintained to a very high standard and bikes are updated regularly and all are fitted with 'gel' saddles to provide maximum comfort.
