Motorbikes offer some of the most fun you can have on a public road, and are ideally suited to summer driving in the countryside. It might not be bike weather right now, but come the summer, you’ll be dying to get out on the road. The problem is of course, that bikes aren’t practical all year round.

If you’re a single person, who rarely needs to transport any luggage, then you’ve probably considered getting a bike in the past. If however, you’ve got a family, or you need the space or comfort for the commute, then a car is the only option. Not many of us can afford the luxury of running both a car and a motorbike at the same time.

Hire a Bike

Now, we’re not saying cars aren’t fun, because they quite clearly are, but bikes offer a totally different experience, which is ideal if you’re going for a weekend away. They give you a feeling of being out in the open and yet connected to the road that not even a convertible will match. It’s certainly something that everyone should experience.

The answer then, is to rent a bike. It could make a great holiday, and is also relatively cost effective. The hire generally includes everything you need, including insurance. You’ll also save a considerable amount on fuel, because bikes are generally far superior to cars in terms of economy. Go to to see the different bikes that you could hire in the UK.
