Bike-friendly hotels

Our bike policy

Our bike policy

We’re proud to say that every one of our hotels are bike friendly. Whether you want to keep your bike in your room or have it stored away safely, the choice is completely yours. We welcome clean bikes with dirt-free tyres but if your bike needs a little wipe down, ask at reception about local facilities to help you out. All we ask is you walk your bike around the hotel, lean it gently on the wall of your room and don’t over crowd your room with lots of bikes.

The Premier Inn breakfast

We all know breakfast is the most important part of the day, especially if you’ve got a big day of cycling ahead. Cycling professional Trevor Ward says “While you don’t need the 6,000 calories a Tour de France rider needs, you can carb load at breakfast and enjoy a smoothie.” We’ve created a few inspiring breakfast combos using our Premier Inn breakfast menu, perfect for whatever ride you’re going on.

Top 5 things to pack

Top 5 things to pack

Cycling expert Trevor Ward shares his top 5 items to pack before setting off.
 

  1. Waterproofs are essential - especially for a cycling break in the UK! Clothes should be stretchy without being baggy and the stiffer the soles on your shoes the better.

  2. Ensure you have helmets for every member of the family.

  3. Basic tools such as spare tubes, a pump and multi-tool are good to have just in case of emergencies.

  4. Pack a lightweight rucksack. It’s so useful for carrying snacks, drinks, tools and waterproofs.

  5. Don’t forget to pack a couple of bike locks for any pub or café stops you make along the way.

Tips for travelling with a bike

Tips for travelling with a bike

Check our Trevor Ward’s tips for travelling with your two-wheeled companion:
 

  1. If you have a roof rack, watch out for low headroom car parks. You don’t want your bike to be flattened!

  2. If you have a trunk-mounted bike rack, make sure the bikes don’t obscure registration plates or lights as it’s against the law.

  3. Travelling by train? You can reserve a free space for your bike when booking your ticket.

  4. Panniers are great for carrying luggage but if you’re travelling without, make sure you book a taxi that has room for a bike.

  5. When you’re nice and dry indoors and your bike is parked outdoors in the rain, remember to use your saddle cover!
