Performance Cycles

Bike, Wheel and Event hire

At Performance Cycles we understand that not everyone is ready to take the plunge and spend out a chunk of money on their first road bike or pair of aero wheels, but you might still want to use them for your target event of the year – and just see what a difference it can make. So during 2018 we’ll be attending a number of events in and around the Cirencester area (and beyond) to enable you to hire a bike or pair of race wheels from us. Or, If you’re visiting the area on holiday we can save you the hassle of bringing your bike with you – and give you advice on the best rides and routes to use to see what the Cotswolds has to offer.

Over the years we’ve also built up an impressive array of kit to help you organise your event – so have full-on team roof racks (6 bikes at a time) and bike trailers (12 bikes at a time) available should you need those as well.


Fancy trying out a road bike for your next event? Or here on holiday and want to get out for a ride? Our road bike hire fleet from Orbea could be just what you're looking for, with aluminium Avant models from £11/day, and carbon framed Orcas from £17.50/day.

Based in the heart of the Cotswolds we're ideally placed for you to get out and explore - and if you want some inspiration for some routes, check out our club website and feel free to use the routes on there. Bikes can be supplied with tool kits, spares and pumps - and if you need them we also have helmets and pedals available (although it's always better to bring your own if you can). Dependant on location, we can also collect and deliver bikes to wherever you are staying (subject to a small additional charge).

To book a hire bike, give us a call on 01285 851946 or email



The Avant is the all day comfort option from Orbea, with slightly more upright, less racy geometry. All our bikes are equiped with Shimano 105 groupsets.

The Orca is Orbea's flagship race bike, and our OME framed bikes offer a smooth, responsive ride without compromising on speed. They are based on a full carbon frame and fork, again with a Shimano 105 groupset.

£25 per day or £75 for 3-7 days

£40 per day or £120 for 3-7 days


Decent wheels are expensive (!!) and can be hard to justify for one or two key events a year - which is why we've developed our race wheel hire package. From just £50 for a weekend you can hire a set of deep section Mavic wheels, giving you the advantage of posh wheels without the cost!! We have wheels for both disc and non-disc (caliper) bikes available and by using your current cassette (and disc rotors in the case of the disc wheels) we can ensure the perfect compatibilty with your current set-up. All wheels come fitted with Mavic tubeless tyres (with the exception of the Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon which aren't tubeless), reducing the likelihood of punctures even further.
