We love Beryl Bikes

by Phil

We love Beryl Bikes from West Midlands Cycle Hire!  They are perfect for adults who want to learn to ride a bike with Pedal Ahead! in or near Cannon Hill Park.

You can hire a Beryl Bike from a variety of locations in the Edgbaston, Selly Oak, Digbeth and City Centre areas of Birmingham.  There is a hire location near to the Edgbaston Road entrance to Cannon Hill Park.  This means you can book a cycling lessonberyl bike with Pedal Ahead! at Cannon Hill Park and use your own bike, or hire a Beryl Bike.

These are the things we love about Beryl Bikes:

  • Once you have downloaded the Beryl App on to your phone and set up your payment method, it’s easy to unlock a bike when you get to the docking station, even if you don’t have a good signal.
  • The bikes are easy to ride and have all the features you need.  They are ideal for beginners or improvers as they give you a good body shape.
  • Your first half hour is free, and after that the charges are reasonable.

In our experience, Beryl Bikes are suitable for learners who are 5’3″ and above.  It is easy to adjust the saddle height.
