SSB is pleased to work with Sustrans on holding various guided bike rides in the local area. The rides vary in length and difficulty – there are gentle rides more suitable for families, as well as others which take all day and cover more challenging terrain.  Perhaps you would like  to tackle the 50 mile ‘Discovering the Dartmoor Way’! Check the Blog pages and the events calendar to see whats coming up and if there’s a ride for you.

Remember you can arrange a free loan of a bike from the SSB Bike Bank, on a first come basis.

Bike Bank

The South Brent Bike Bank was established by SSB in 2015 as a community resource offering a free lease of a bike for up to 7 days and promoting sustainable transport in and around South Brent. The bikes are ideal for new riders as they are easy to use and well suited to Devon being light and with plenty of gears for those hills. Each lease includes helmet, gloves and lights to get you on the road as well as a support pack full of advice, tips for new cyclists, links to cycling organisations in the area and maps.

The Bike Bank is currently only open to adults of 18 and over.

To borrow a bike you must register on the scheme. To register:

  • Download and complete a registration form and email it to bike@sustainablesouthbrent.org.uk
  • Or complete a paper registration form from the envelope on the SSB notice board in the lobby of the Old School Community Centre and place it in the envelope marked ‘Completed registration forms’

Once you have registered, further instructions will be emailed to you and you will be able to choose and book out a bike from the green, secure cycle store at the Old School Community Centre.

For more information email bike@sustainablesouthbrent.org.uk or call Penny on 01364 72128 or 07814 207106
