Why I started surreybikeboxhire

Having taken up cycling a few years ago I have gone from my first rides around the Surrey hills to some more serious trips abroad. I never liked the idea of doing a serious Etape climb on an unfamiliar hire bike so getting my own bike there safe and sound had to be the way.

Finding a good bike box became an obsession but now I have found one I hope it will help other cyclists to broaden their horizons and cycle abroad. The list of elite cyclists who use this particular box is reassuring so I believe it is a good investment in bike protection. Newbies might be apprehensive about dismantling and re building their bike but it’s quite simple and we can help with our step by step guide and video.
